New Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde is reportedly set to make Manchester United’s Ander Herrera his top transfer target, having worked with the 37-year-old at Athletic Bilbao, Spanish paper Sport claim.
Herrera would be playing Champions League football with united next season following the club’s Europa League final win last night, but the playmaker could allegedly be tempted away from Old Trafford over the summer.
Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho could leave the Etihad in pursuit of first team football, after his agent revealed that other clubs are interested. Hi agent Olumide Olowu told Owngoalnigeria.com:
“It’s clear he won’t be sold to a direct title rival by Man City, so when I see the reported interest from Spurs. I know if it becomes official it will be dismissed outrightly, but West Ham, we will have to wait and see.”
The likes of West Brom, West Ham, Everton, Southampton, Borussia Dortmund and Hoffenheim are also being linked with a move for the 20-year-old.
