Manchester United Confirm Herrera Deal

Manchester United have confirmed that Ander Herrera has completed his Manchester United move from Athletic Bilbao on a four-year deal. The Spanish club turned down a £29m bid from United for the Spanish midfielder on Thursday morning. However, United increased their offer to activate a clause in Herrera’s contract.

“Signing for Manchester United is a dream come true, I have joined United to do all I can to help the team reach the club’s objectives.” said the highly-rated Spaniard, who went on to say:  “Having arrived on Tuesday, I’m excited to now be living in Manchester and I can’t wait for my first game in United’s famous red shirt.”

The deal for Herrera broke down on last sumer’s deadline day, with 3 fake representatives claiming to be exemplifying United, turning up at La Liga’s headquarters ready to pay transfer fee, with either clubs unaware of this.

Herrera is still grateful of his local team, as he said:

“I will never forget my time with Athletic Club,” he said. “I’d like to thank the fans and staff for all their support and above all wish all my fantastic former team-mates all the best for the future.”

Herrera will train for United at the beginning of the highly-anticipated United summer tour, in USA, July 18th

“Ander is a fantastic young player, with great energy and creativity we believe him to be one of the brightest young prospects in Spain and I am certain he will be a big hit with the United fans.” said assistant manager Ryan Giggs.

Herrera’s kit number is yet to be decided by the club, which could mean a lot more arrivals and departures to come at Old Trafford this summer.

Enjoy that? Give it a share!

United should not leave any stone unturn, they should not hesitate to sign any player they thought they despirately need and they wrap it up fast to prevent other suitors to enter the race..

This is a start. We need a LB and another CB to actually finish top 4 and at a push a title challange.

We need to promote the youth players that have done well out on loan as well as rid of other players who are no longer up to it. But as we have seen with the Valencia contract extention, some of those we want to leave my be kept on.
