Top midfielder to sign £200000-a-week contract with Man United

After going through a miserable last season, losing both La Liga and UEFA Champions League to rival Real Madrid, the Catalan side this season are keen to add solid depth to their midfield and reportedly have targeted last year's Manchester United Player of the year Ander Herrera.

The same report states that Herrera's deal is set to be worth around £41.6m to him over four years as he looks to place himself as one of the highest-earners at the club.

Manchester United want to keep Herrera at the club amid concerns Barcelona could swoop for the Spain global.

Herrera also went on to talk about David de Gea, and the recent talk linking him once again to Los Blancos: "He's happy and I know this is going to sound repetitive because I always say the same by David is one of the few keepers who wins you points".

Manchester United meet the European champions twice ahead of the 2017-18 Premier League season, once in the International Champions Cup and again in the European Super Cup.

The robust numbers kept world shares near a record high and briefly helped China's major stock indexes recoup earlier losses. Industrial production grew at a 7.6% year-on-year clip last month, after increasing by 6.5% in May (consensus: 6.5%).

"Too bad he's not with us, but I wish him well".

"Madrid are the most powerful team of the moment", Herrera suggested.

"I am just as motivated, of course, playing against Real Madrid and it's a good test for us. We're a strong team with a winning Coach".

Herrera's current contract expires next summer but the Spaniard is expected to sign a bumper new deal over the next fortnight.
