A report in Spain claims that Real Madrid will consider making a move for Manchester United's Ander Herrera if their pursuit of Paul Pogba fails.

Real Madrid have given consideration to the prospect of making a summer move for Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera, according to a report in Spain.

It is widely believed that the Spanish club's major pre-season transfer target is Paul Pogba.

However, there have been suggestions that Los Blancos may find it difficult to match Juventus's valuation of the France international.

If that proves to be the case, Fichajes claims that Herrera has been identified by Bernabeu officials as being a potential alternative option.

The report adds that the 26-year-old could seek a move away from Old Trafford if United fail to qualify for next season's Champions League.
