Man United midfield star targeted by La Liga pair

Manchester United star Ander Herrera is being targeted by Valencia and Atletico Madrid this summer following new midfield additions, according to reports from the Metro.

The 25-year-old joined last summer, but his role in the squad is now under jeopardy after United signed Morgan Schneiderlin as well as Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Ahead of his move to Old Trafford, Herrera enjoyed spells at Athletic Bilbao as well as Real Zaragoza and could now make a return to Spain for the upcoming campaign.

The La Liga pair are now looking to reinforce their side with the midfielder, but his switch is likely to depend on how manager Louis van Gaal decides to use him.

Based on Van Gaal’s preseason selections, it seems that he is favouring club veteran Michael Carrick and new signing Schneiderlin in the middle of the park.

He featured 31 times in all competitions for his side last season, scoring a total of eight goals while providing a further five assists.
