ANDER HERRERA has agreed a deal to join Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer at the end of the season.
SunSport told you the Spain midfielder is looking at a £150,000-a-week deal for three years and was expected to make the switch.
Herrera, 29, is out of contract at the end of the season and was said to be unimpressed with United’s offer of a new long-term deal.
He has made 187 appearances for the Red Devils across five seasons in English football and been a crucial part to the revival of form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Old Trafford executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward gave Herrera – who joined from Athletic Bilbao for £29million five years ago and earns around £100,000 per week – an extension to his original contract last summer.
But he has failed to tie down the former La Liga star, who can expect domestic dominance alongside the likes of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe at the Parc des Princes.
The move comes as something of a surprise given Ole’s praise for Herrera.
He has described his “energy and tenaciousness” as “vital” and hailed him for having “loads of energy”.
PSG are looking to reinforce their midfield in their second season under Thomas Tuchel – who it was rumoured could be replaced by ex-United chief Jose Mourinho.
They expect Adrien Rabiot to go and almost got Frenkie de Jong – ahead of Man Utd – as a replacement, only for him to go for Barcelona instead.
