Transfer News!! Barcelona To Sign This Highly Rated Manchester United Midfielder If Move For Verratti Collapses - 4 years ago
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.
