Manchester United could face losing midfielder Ander Herrera to Spanish giants Barcelona after the Catalan giants identified the anchorman as the man they want to replace Xavi.
The 35-year-old playmaker is preparing to depart the Nou Camp this summer with a move to Qatar set to be finalised. Herrera has impressed lately at Old Trafford despite struggling early on after completing a move Athletic Bilbao at the start of the season.
According to report, Barca are known to be keen admirers of the United star and tried to snap him up before he completed his move to England. They will now likely revive their interest, but the La Liga outfit will have to wait until at least January to complete any potential deal.
Luis Enrique’s side are currently under a transfer embargo which prevents them from signing players until January at least, although it has been claimed that they will wait until next summer to make a move for Herrera.
