Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants €50million rated star as Ander Herrera replacement

The Daily Star claims Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has identified his replacement for Ander Herrera, it has been claimed.

Manchester United have confirmed that Ander Herrera will be leaving the club this summer following five years with the Old Trafford side.

Herrera joined United in 2014 from Athletic Club and has since gone on to make 189 appearances, scoring 20 goals.

He has featured 22 times in the Premier League this season, starting 16 of those.

United have long been linked with the defensive midfielder with report suggesting they can sign Atletico Madrid star Thomas Partey for €50million (£44m).

Arsenal are also said to be tracking him along with Serie A giants Inter Milan.

Partey’s agent, Daniel Jimenez, recently addressed the speculation about Inter and revealed he had a release clause in his contract that was lower than many expected.

“There’s a €50m release clause in his contract, a figure that’s cheap for a player like Thomas.

“We’ll wait for the season to end and then we’ll see.”

United are looking to sign a new holding midfielder in the summer as boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer plots a dramatic overhaul of his struggling squad.

Tough-tackling Partey could slot straight into the side with Nemanja Matic’s place in midfield looking increasingly more vulnerable.
