Manchester United may re-sign Ander Herrera from Paris Saint-Germain in the wake of Lionel Messi’s move to the club, reports say. The Spain international previously spent five years at Old Trafford. And, now, a stunning return may be on the cards.
Manchester United are set to be frugal throughout the rest of the transfer window.
Having spent big on Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane, the Red Devils are now ready to abandon pursuits of the likes of Kieran Trippier, Saul Niguez, Eduardo Camavinga and Ruben Neves.
However, should the right players become available for the right price, then United are still open to strengthening their squad.
And the Guardian say a shock return for Herrera could feasibly happen this summer after PSG transfer listed the Spain international.
The Ligue 1 giants have sealed a massive deal for Messi, landing the Barcelona icon on a free following his Nou Camp exit.

And Herrera to United could now be on with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still eyeing a midfielder.
The Red Devils snapped up the midfielder from Athletic Bilbao back in the summer transfer window of 2014, following Louis van Gaal’s appointment.
He became a key player under the Dutchman though it was under Jose Mourinho where he really flourished, establishing himself as a regular under the Portuguese.
The 31-year-old won the FA Cup under Van Gaal, while claiming the Europa League and EFL Cup with Mourinho at the helm.
And he was a vital asset to Solskjaer before choosing to leave back in the summer transfer window of 2019, having grown fed up at the club’s failure to speed up a new contract.

Herrera later said: “When I look back a year ago, my intention was not to leave Manchester United.
“I had some different opinions with the board but I respect them. I respect them a lot.
“They do things for Manchester United and I disagree with the people who say they don’t.
“They really suffer when things don’t go well and they really fight to bring Manchester United back.
“I disagreed with some of the decisions they made but this happens in football. It happens in every company.

“Apart from that, I respect them. I had a great relationship with Ed Woodward and with the owners when they came so I have nothing to complain about with them.
“He [Solskjaer] did a lot for me to stay, but things did not happen, they [United] arrived late, and by then I had already made the decision to play in Paris.”
Solskjaer hailed Herrera after he left for PSG, praising the midfielder’s professionalism.
“Hopefully he doesn’t start tomorrow,” he said.
“He’s a top human being, professional, great among the group and lads. I’ve kept in touch with him myself.
“He’s just a player and person you want the best for. He plays football for the right reasons.”
United could lose a midfielder or two before the transfer window slams shut.
James Garner is being linked with a move away, with the youngster previously spending last season on loan at Nottingham Forest.
And talk of Paul Pogba potentially leaving continues to gather pace, with PSG a possible next destination.
Donny van de Beek has been eyed by Arsenal and Inter Milan but the Netherlands international is expected to stay put.
