Manchester United star Ander Herrera likely to leave club on a free with Athletic Bilbao circling

The 29-year-old midfielder has seen just 68 minutes of Premier League action for United this season, falling down the pecking order behind Fred, Marouane Fellaini and Scott McTominay.

Herrera is out of contract at the end of the season and will consider his options as the current deal on offer to extend his stay at Old Trafford is not what he had hoped for.

And his former employers are prepared to offer him a return to La Liga with a lucrative package to tempt him back to the Basque Country, claim El Correo.

Herrera moved to Old Trafford from San Mames for £29million in 2014.

The midfielder has made 112 appearances for United and has won the Europa League, FA Cup and League Cup during his for four years at the club.

United boss Jose Mourinho has expressed a desire to keep experienced players like Herrera at the club.

However, Atheltic could table an offer for the midfielder in January who has attracted interest from Barcelona, AC Milan and Atletico Madrid in the last two transfer windows.

Another option is for Herrera to pen a pre-contract with the La Liga when he can sign for an overseas club in January.

Fit-again Herrera will be hoping to play a part in the game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge after the international break.
