United’s executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, chose to activate a year-long extension on Herrera’s contract last summer instead of negotiating a new deal.

It had previously been reported that Paris Saint-Germain were set to sign the 29-year-old.

According to French publication, L’Equipe, Arsenal could make a late move for Herrera as Unai Emery is a big fan of the midfielder.

Herrera’s protracted signing from Athletic Bilbao was completed in 2014 when United met his £28.85million buyout clause.

He has gone on to make 187 appearances for the club and won the FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League.

The midfielder has established himself as a key member of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team and has made 14 appearances under the new manager.

His exit from Old Trafford looks set to be imminent, though, as United left it late to offer Herrera a new deal.
