Ander Herrera is likely to shorten his time at Paris Saint-Germain as the Ligue 1 club terminate his contract two years early.
However, the midfielder was lately offered to stay at Old Trafford and with the money reportedly offered in Paris it was an easy decision.
Herrera’s contract at Parc des Princes does not expire until 2024 but it was clear earlier in the summer that he had a limited future with the club after missing the pre-season tour to Japan.
He is yet to feature in the team’s league campaign and is now set to be sacked so he can return to Athletic Bilbao, according to L’Equipe.
Born in Bilbao, Herrera joined the club in 2011 after starting his career at Real Zaragoza where he really made a name for himself.
After just two years at the Basque club, United tried to sign him in August 2013 when David Moyes succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson as manager.
The Scot had already missed Thiago and Cesc Fabregas this summer and a bizarre incident involving lawyers claiming to be from United scuppered any deal for Herrera.
Instead, he had to wait another year before finally moving to Old Trafford, where he became a cult hero.
However, Christophe Galtier has other concerns over the reported issues between Kylian Mbappe and Neymar in recent games.
