The midfielder’s contract at Manchester United is about to expire next summer and a number of clubs are said to be monitoring his situation, with Athletic Bilbao showing the most concrete interest in an attempt to lure the player to their team.

Eduardo Berizzo is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this winter.

Herrera has the talent to play many roles in midfield.

According to Daily Mail, “Ander Herrera, out of contract at Manchester United in the summer and he is being lined up for a return to Athletic Bilbao. The Spanish midfielder is yet to agree new terms at Old Trafford, and Sportsmail understands the current offer on the table has fallen short of what the 29-year-old had hoped for and he is preparing to consider his options in January. Herrera has been a key figure for Jose Mourinho during his tenure as United manager, however that has changed in recent weeks and his frustration has been compounded by a niggling injury. Fit again, he is hoping to stake a claim for a first team place after the international break and would like to stay at Old Trafford. Realistically, though, that may not be possible unless United revise their offer. Athletic tried to sign Herrera in the summer and are prepared to make him the highest paid player at the club should he choose to join them in January. ”


Undoubtedly he would be a fantastic recruit for Athletic Bilbao.

Athletic Bilbao fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club this winter.
