Ander Herrera is in ‘advanced talks’ with Paris Saint-Germain ahead of a free transfer to the French giants, reports claim.
The Manchester United midfielder, 29, is yet to renew his current deal at Old Trafford – which runs out at the end of the season.
He looked set to stay at the club after becoming an integral part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s resurgent reign.
However, according to The Sun, PSG look set to snatch the Spaniard by offering him a three-year deal worth £150,000-a-week.
The French champions have been in the hunt for a midfield destroyer and failed with a bid to sign Everton’s Idrissa Gueye in the January transfer window.

This has become something of a modern phenomenon – players running down their contracts, leaving for free, and getting a considerable wage hike at their new club.
The signing-on fee is designed to reflect the fact the club do not have to pay a transfer fee – and instead the money goes straight to the player.
