Manchester United retain Herrera interest

Published Add your comment

Manchester United will retain their interest in Ander Herrera until January, according to reports.

The Red Devils pursued the former Spanish U21 international in the closing stages of the summer transfer window, and were thought to be close to landing the Athletic Bilbao midfielder on deadline day.

However, manager David Moyes pulled the plug on the deal, with a £30.5million release clause seen as the major stumbling block.

And, rather than bring the former Real Zaragoza starlet to the Premier League, it was Marouane Fellaini who made the move to Manchester United.

Despite the arrival of another midfielder, the Old Trafford outfit haven’t given up on Herrera completely, with The Daily Mirror claiming the champions could table a fresh bid in the new year.

Much will depend on the 24-year-old's form in La Liga over the coming months, and it appears Manchester United will be keeping a close eye on the player ahead of the next transfer window in January.
