Former Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has sealed a five year deal with French League champions Paris Saint Germain.

The Spaniard parted ways with the Red Devils at the end of last season at the expiration of his contract at Old Trafford.

He however joined the Parisians as a free agent meaning the Premier league club failed to make any money on the player.

PSG unveiled the 29-year-old in a short video playing Fifa 20-themed as he picked up a PlayStation pad transferring himself to the PSG squad.

Though, his signing was made open this week, it does not come as a surprise as the Spaniard already made it known he might be joining the club this summer.

SunSport however revealed that the midfielder will wear jersey number 21 and will be made available online for all his fans.

Herrera spent five years at Old Trafford after joining them from Athletic Bilbao in a deal valued around £29 million in 2014.

He then went ahead to score 20 goals and made 27 assists in over 185 matches in all competition for the Premier League outfit.

The Spanish international was instrumental to Man United's Europa league triumph in 2017, and also won the FA Cup and the EFL Cup in the process.

Reacting to his recent move, Herrera said he was looking forward to living in Paris, which he labels as "the world's most beautiful city."

"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. I also love the city. 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."
