PSG have confirmed the signing of Ander Herrera on a 5-year deal.
Herrera confirmed his departure from Manchester United a few weeks before, thus ending his departure from the club. The Spaniard made 189 appearances for the Red Devils since his €36 million transfer to the club from Athletic Bilbao in 2014. Herrera amassed 20 goals and 27 assists during his stint at Old Trafford.
In his final season for Manchester United, Herrera made 28 appearances across all competitions, scoring three goals while providing as many assists.
While at Manchester United, Herrera helped the club win four trophies that include a Europa League title, an FA Cup title, an EFL Cup title and a Community Shield title. Herrera was named Manchester Unted’s Player of the Year for the 2016/17 season when he was also in the Europa League Squad of the Season.
Upon penning a contract with PSG, Herrera said, “Paris Saint-Germain is the greatest club in France. It keeps on improving and competes to win every possible title. I was looking forward to coming to Paris and to wearing those colours. I hope to continue to make history with the club. Joining this club is an amazing feeling.
“Paris is the most beautiful city in the world. I promise three things: work, professionalism and passion. I also promise to improve my French because I think that the language is very important for the team’s communication.”
Herrera is PSG’s third signing this summer. The Parisians signed Polish goalkeeper Marcin Bulka before signing Pablo Sarabia from Sevilla on a transfer fee of €19.5 million.
