The newspaper says that the salary being offered to the Manchester United midfielder may leave some PSG players' noses out of joint.

Having failed to agree a new contract at Manchester United, all the indications are that Ander Herrera will leave Old Trafford on a free transfer at the end of the season, with Paris Saint-Germain the midfielder's likely destination.

Herrera a signing PSG need - but...

However, although PSG are in need of summer reinforcements in the engine room, particularly given Adrien Rabiot's first-team banishment and imminent departure, a report in the French media suggests that Herrera's arrival at the Parc des Princes could cause a rift in the dressing room.

According to Le Parisien, the 12m-euro annual wage that PSG are thought to be offering Herrera may not go down well at all with other long-serving, experienced members of the squad who earn less than that, such as Marquinhos and Marco Verratti, not least because the Spaniard is not expected to be a starter.
