Barcelona to move for Manchester United’s Herrera if Verratti move collapses


Barcelona will turn their attentions to Manchester United’ Ander Herrera, if they fail to sign Marco Verratti from Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

Verratti remains Barca’s number one target, but PSG are unwilling to allow the 24-year-old leave.

The La Liga side have not given up on Verratti yet and will step up their efforts to force through a deal, if the player expresses a desire to leave.

However, Thursday’s front page of Spanish publication SPORT — which carries a picture of Herrera alongside the headline “Plan B a Verratti” — suggests they will look elsewhere if necessary.

Herrera is yet to put pen to paper on a new deal at Old Trafford, opening the door for Barcelona to consider swooping for the the former Athletic Bilbao ace.
