United face numerous issues ahead of next season. Jose Mourinho has been rambling on and on about the need for an apt central midfielder to replace the retiring Michael Carrick in the heart of their midfield.
Further, should he opt to alter the shape of the team from the 4-3-3 they currently sport, his other midfield options will also need to be given great thought to.
In addition to all of this, he must also reconcile himself with those talents that have been unsatisfied with the game time they have received this season and might be looking to leave the franchise. One such offer awaits a United midfielder.
As per El Gol Digital, Barcelona are considering the purchase of Ander Herrera from Old Trafford, who is out of contract in 2019. The stellar midfielder has been deployed sparingly by Mourinho, albeit in big games.

The source adds that Herrera is heavily unsatisfied with the mere 12 league appearances he has garnered so far this season, and will be seeking a move back to his homeland. The Catalan giants could acquire him for as cheap as £22 million.
In Barcelona, he will find a destination that will be hard to say no to. At 28 years of age, the source claims that the Spaniard will be utilized by Valverde as the replacement for Iniesta, who will leave the club at the end of this campaign.
Further, having functioned under the boss during their stint at Athletic Bilbao, their shared rapport will be viewed as a positive in the deal going through.
Herrera was named last season’s Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year, and has consistently proven himself to be the kind of midfielder that United badly need as the hidden conduit in contrast to Paul Pogba.
