Manchester United are set to make the surprise signing of Bayern Munich winger Xherdan Shaqiri in January by accepting a move from the German side for their summer signing Ander Herrera, as reported by the Daily Star.
Shaqiri has been heavily targeted by the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal since the summer months, but it now seems as though he will move on to their divisional rivals.
Bayern boss Pep Guardiola is, according to reports, incredibly keen to add Ander Herrera to his squad.
Shaqiri has failed to lock down a starting position in the side since his move from Basel, and this situation does not seem like changing anytime soon.
Herrera only moved to Man Utd from Athletic Bilbao in the summer, costing the Old Trafford club £30 million, but he has made only five appearances since August.
Speculation now suggests Man Utd will be willing to accept a bid of £7 million plus Shaqiri for the player.
