Louis van Gaal signs Ander Herrera for Manchester United



The 24-year-old arrived at Carrington on Wednesday ahead of the completion of his transfer from Athletic Bilbao and is set to provide a dynamic all-round option to Louis van Gaal
There are a lot of things that Manchester United would like to have done differently about the transition out of the Sir Alex Ferguson era.
Though there were plenty of increasingly hideous moments on the pitch throughout David Moyes’s disastrous reign, the revelation that there were imposters of some kind in Spain looking to tie up a deal for Athletic Bilbao’s Ander Herrera without the club’s knowledge might have been the true nadir.
United’s identification of the Spaniard as a central midfield target ended in a rejected £25.5 million bid and a comically unprofessional chase from whichever representatives ended up talking to Athletic. But it is telling that they have moved quickly after the appointment of Louis van Gaal to go back and do the deal properly this time.
The 24-year-old arrived at the club’s Carrington training ground on Wednesday afternoon, with a team doctor on the scene, and a £28m deal is expected to be completed shortly.
