Manchester United are linked with more than a few quality midfielders in the summer transfer window as Mourinho looks to reinforce his squad.
More importantly, the Portuguese boss must hold on to the key players that he has in his current team and Ander Herrera is surely a vital figure at Old Trafford after impressive big time in the last campaign.
According to a report covered by Daily Star, Man Utd are ready to agree a bumper new deal with Herrera to ward off interest from Spanish giants like Altetico Madrid and Barcelona.
The Spanish international featured in 50 games in all competitions for the Red Devils last season, scored 2 goals and provided no fewer than 11 assists.
The 27-year-old former Athletico Bilbao midfielder’s current deal with the British giants will expire next year and without doubt, he deserves a new contract.
In such a scenario, Man Utd are going to offer him a fresh deal (Daily Star link provided above) that will make him earn £175,000-a-week, £36.4million until 2021.
Herrera was a key member in Mourinho’s starting XI last season and the former Chelsea boss must sign a top defensive midfielder who will partner the Spaniard in the center of the park next season.
