Manchester United will make another bid for summer transfer target Ander Herrera when the January transfer window opens, according to the Daily Telegraph, following comments from David Moyes.
After United's 2-2 draw with Cardiff on Sunday, Moyes admitted that the club were still looking to strengthen in the central midfield area—with a return for Herrera, who they failed to sign on deadline day at the start of the season, a strong possibility.
Jason Burt writes:
A fresh bid is expected in the January transfer window for the Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera who United attempted to sign in August.
It is understood that the two clubs have continued a dialogue over the 24-year-old after they failed to agree a fee at the end of the last window.
Herrera, who speaks good English, is believed to be extremely keen to join United.
Nevertheless United will not meet the buy-out clause in Herrera’s contract, which is thought to be as high as £36 million.
United offered £20 million plus £3 million in add-ons in August and are not expected to offer more in January.
Moyes is aware of his need to strengthen.
'We felt in the summer we would have like to have got a couple in to midfield and we only added one so it is an area we need to look at,' he said.
The paper also reports that Ryan Giggs is set to be offered a new deal at the club after expressing his desire to continue playing.
