Milan are interested in making a swoop to take Herrera away from Old Trafford

Since moving to the club from Spanish outfit Athletic Bilbao in the summer of 2014, Herrera has managed to make a good impression at Old Trafford.

In 152 appearances for the Red Devils, the Spanish international has managed to clock up a total of 16 goals and 23 assists, a decent return for a central midfielder.

The arrival of stars such as Paul Pogba has meant that Herrer has had to change his play style these past few seasons in order to allow his United teammates to flourish.

Herrera’s willingness to defend and quality physical prowess has seen some label him as one of the most important players in Jose Mourinho’s side, and for good reason.

Should United be willing to sell Herrera, it’ll be interesting to see who the Red Devils go for to replace the midfielder.
