Manchester United is currently not in a good position. The optimism surrounding the early days of the Ole Gunar Solskayer's rule was well and truly disintegrated, which was accompanied by the growing awareness that the club is remote from where they want it.
Manchester United's midfield week gave another reminder of that fact. Pep Guardiola's side is the street in front of its rivals, something that has been coming for several years. It is the rise of Liverpool that will destroy United fans, however, given how far they have come in the past few seasons.
The club needs a big statement, with the view of some team members that it is deplorable at the moment this season. With this, they look like losing one of the players they actually wanted to keep.
Daily Mail has reported that Ander Herrera has agreed to an agreement with the French PSG champion, who will join the free transfer this summer. The Spaniard agreed with his salary and other conditions, with only the length of the contract to be finalized.
Former Herrera Atetik Bilbao club was interested in returning him to the Basque region, but he finally decided to move to Paris.
The 29-year-old is one of the few players who have made good use of United this season, on several occasions led this side. His durable attitude made him stand out in the middle row, which was largely devoid of any other form of hard work.
His loss will be unfortunate by fans of United who fell in love with a midfielder during his five-year magic in Manchester.
With whispers continuing for the future of Pogba Pogba in the club, as well as the lack of form among other midfielders, Manchester United could have a very different middle semifinal next season.
