Athletic Club Target Ander Herrera Willing To Listen To Offers In January
In a summer of many changes, Athletic Club aggressively pursued Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera in hopes of bringing him back to the San Mamés. The 29-year-old made it very clear that he wanted to see out his contract with the English side and was hoping to receive a renewal offer in the process. Now things have taken another turn.
According to several media outlets in England and Spain the midfielder has yet to hear anything about a potential renewal from Manchester United and is now willing to listen to offers from other clubs in January. His contract is set to expire next summer so he will be free to talk to other teams when the new year arrives. With that being said it is safe to assume that Athletic will once again be chasing his signature.
The Lions had already made the decision to wait until the end of the season to pursue Herrera in hopes of signing him for free, but the chance to bring him back to the San Mamés in January will also be alluring. Over the summer the Basques offered Herrera the chance to be one of the highest paid players in the team and bringing in €80 million from the exit of Kepa Arrizabalaga will only reinforce that proposal. Only time will tell what will happen with Ander Herrera, but Athletic will be serious contenders to land the midfielder if he does leave Manchester United.
