Ander Herrera has agreed to a pre-contract deal with Paris Saint-Germain, according to Daily Record.
Herrera’s contract was due to expire this summer after United’s vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, chose to activate a year-long extension on Herrera’s contract, rather than negotiating a new deal.
The Spaniard was supposedly asking for £200,000-per-week but United refused, declaring that the highest they were prepared to go was £170,000-per-week, £50,000 more than what he was being paid already.
With PSG’s Qatari owners on hand to pump cash into the club whenever they need it, tempting Herrera to Paris was probably a very easy task indeed. There’s no doubt that they would be able to meet Herrera’s wage demands and so this switch had been on the cards for some time.
