Ander Herrera signed for Paris Saint-Germain on a five-year deal after leaving Manchester United.

The 29-year-old agreed terms with French champions PSG back in April, having read about the final six months of his contract.

Herrera initially joined United from Athletic Bilbao in 2014 and won the Europa League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup during his time in Manchester, 2016-17 season.

"Paris Saint-Germain is the greatest club in France," said Herrera, after signing until June 2024.

"It keeps on improving and competing to win every possible title.

"I was looking forward to coming to Paris and to wearing those colors. 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 promise to improve my French because I think the language is very important for the team's communication."

Herrera's future was long-serving full-back Antonio Valencia out of Old Trafford when their contracts were expired in June, while Juan Mata signed a new deal.

He represents further reinforcement in midfield for Ligue 1 champions PSG, who have already signed Pablo Sarabia to counter the loss of Adrien Rabiot to Juventus on a free transfer.
