Manchester United set to sign Ander Herrera

Share

Manchester United finally have signed their long-term target Ander Herrera, after the Red Devils triggered his €36m buy-out clauses, reported by both Spanish newspapers, Marca & AS

According to the report from Marca, the player has signed a four-year-deal with Manchester United where he will earn €3m per year, while the deal will be officially announced within Tuesday. He is currently in England to undergo a medical and all set to become the third Spanish player in Louis van Gaal’s team after Juan Mata and David de Gea.

Ander Herrera DONE DEAL: Manchester United set to sign €36m Chelsea target

To be honest, we are quite shocked with this report. Only couple of days back, agent of the player, Arturo Canales said he was unaware of any interest from Premier League clubs, further adding his client is happy in Bilbao focussing on the season ahead.

“There has been nothing new,” Canales said to Spanish newspaper AS. “There were rumours during the whole year, saying that United would try and sign him this summer, and even that [Jose] Mourinho wanted him for Chelsea, but we have not heard anything.”

“The player is focused on Athletic and nothing else,” he added. “Ander is on holidays and he is only thinking about the coming season with Athletic, because he is very excited about playing the Champions League with his team.”

And now AS reporting that United have already agreed a deal for the Spaniard. Last summer, United had lodged a €30m bid for Herrera but it was rejected. We will keep you updated on this, as we get more info about the deal.

  1. Pls, someone should confirm the signig of Herera by manu and this will excite my heart

  2. Good signing for man u but still he should have join chelsea instead of united

  3. Hmm!Seems like i’m much much happy to hear this ..Large up United.

  4. Herera should consider Chelsea ahead Man.u because of Champions league….Herera be WISE!

  5. Is Chelsea targeting every player in Europe? How come this one is also a Chelsea target?

    These writers are Chelsea fans and are sad to see a good young player going to a team other than theirs.

  6. Every player cannot sign for Chelsea. We cannot have more than 25 players in a season

    • Well before you start celebrating, take a break an listen. United is not interested in Herrera in the first place.United major signings will be confirmed after the world cup.and there is every likelyhood the following players will be playing for United come the summer: arturu vidal, Toni Kroos, Hummel, arjen rubber, luke Shaw,Alex Sanches/Pedro, and some good talent not even familiar with the press right now. Vagaal is a coach with quality he will attract all good players. United have just struck a great deal in Louis Vagaal.

  9. Please we need a great singing this summer to bring united back to winnig ways

  10. who is this nobody-never heard of him-another false hope-so many chancers around

  11. I hope Herrera case will not be another unfinished transfers by this great club. This is bccause fans of Man Utd in Nigeria are becoming increasingly worried about the rate of uncompleted transfers ever since the transfer window opened. Please I want the club management to take this transfer business very serious.

  12. Who is herrera instead of concentrating on big player we signing chiky ones. Our rival chelsea have sign great players and this will make will make their team more solid than before. So we should be awake and sign great players if we want to do business next season

  13. Wow….what a great news, thanks herreara…..we promise you a home sweet hom @old trafford. We are the dream team so your football dream has just began. Kudos to VGL!!!! More quality players boss. RESPCT

  14. Bravo to u Man United for job well done. We know and are sure Ander Herera will make the different in Man United midfield because, he did it for Athletic Bilbao.

  15. I THINK THAT IS A GREAT SIGNING FROM LUIS VAN GAAL

  16. Unless i see him in the United shirt, i will not go with those rumors. Remember the Cavalho and Kroos rumours. Cavalho, according to press, his agent visited Carrington ground even a fee was agreed.I will not agree.

    Wait for 24 hrs, you will hear that the deal is off.

    • I know what u mean , a low i think this is a done deal,, every summer its same thing, dont listen to gossip n rummors i do it every summer signing this player then this player then nothing happings, i think we need th spend big this summer but not silly, we will prob bring in about 4 players n prob over pay,, havent seen this lad play to often so cant comment on his play but price tag steep,,
