Man City, Man Utd battle for Athletic Bilbao playmaker Ander Herrera

Athletic Bilbao playmaker Ander Herrera is a target for Manchester United and Manchester City.

The Basque-born midfielder, 22, has been dubbed the 'Spanish Steven Gerrard'.

And both Manchester giants are ready to make their moves this summer, with City leading the race, says the Sun on Sunday.

City sent chief scout Rob Newman and football officer Brian Marwood to watch Herrera in fine form during Bilbao's draw at Granada on Wednesday.

Herrera also made an impression on United when Bilbao outplayed the Premier League champions in eliminating them from the Europa League last month.
