PSG terminate former Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera’s contract

Ander Herrera, a former midfielder for Manchester United, had his deal with Paris Saint-Germain terminated two years early.

The 33-year-old had a little role for the Parisians last season, and PSG told him earlier this summer that after three seasons with them, he was free to choose a new club.

Herrera will reportedly go back to Bilbao, the team he played for for three years between 2011 and 2014 before joining United for £28.85 million.

Herrera will become a free agent and sign a contract through 2024, with a third year’s option still available.

The midfielder will be released after negotiations over the compensation he will receive for forfeiting the final two years of his PSG deal. He has reportedly waived 40 percent of this money so that Bilbao did not have to pay a transfer fee to secure him and he will not be their highest earner.

Herrera joined Bilbao for the first time from Real Zaragoza and played 128 times for them over three seasons, scoring 11 goals.

In his five seasons with United, Herrera made 189 appearances and helped them win the FA Cup in 2016, plus the EFL Cup and the UEFA Europa League in 2017.
