Moyes is desperate to freshen up his midfield and has earmarked a move for the 24 year old, who is on the fringes of a first call-up to the Spanish national team set-up.
The box to box performer’s displays this term have helped his Basque side to close in on a top four finish, which in turn could negate the need for the San Mames side to sell the talented midfielder.
Either way any move for Herrera could prove costly for Man United with Athletic Bilbao refusing to budge on his asking price, which stands at a whopping £37m, the fee it would take to trigger the player’s release clause.
A number of Man United midfielders are playing for their futures with the likes of Tom Cleverley, loaned out Brazilian Anderson, Darren Fletcher and Shinji Kagawa all failing to make much of an impact this term.
