Man United prepare for £40m midfielder deal

HerreraManchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are questioning whether Louis Van Gaal is making the right call, after reports suggested a high-profile exit could be on the cards.

Metro report that United will consider cashing in on Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera if they can land £40m for his services.

The 26-year-old former Athletic Bilbao star has showed exceptional talent since arriving at Old Trafford but continues to find himself out of Louis Van Gaal’s first-team plans, leading to reported interest from Juventus and Gary Neville’s Valencia.

With United in the market for attacking additions this month, that could push Herrera further down in the pecking order, The Telegraph states Juventus are plotting a £25m bid for the Spaniard.

Our United fans believe that’s an acceptable fee considering that Herrera is simply a squad player but genuinely believe he has more to offer their side and that Van Gaal should give the midfielder more chances.

However, our landlord believes this transfer is extremely likely as Juventus continue to search for the midfield successor to Andrea Pirlo, who left Turin in the summer to move to the MLS.

United fans, would you accept £25m for Ander Herrera? Let us know in the comments below!
