Ander Herrera is relishing the opportunity to play for Manchester United's new boss Louis Van Gaal after completing a move to Old Trafford, according to Sky Sports.
Herrera was former United boss David Moyes' target 12 months ago, but Moyes couldn't get him as he stayed at Atletico Bilbao when the transfer window closed. However, Van Gaal has made the move much quicker this time around to ensure that Herrera wears a red shirt, making him his first signing of the summer.
Van Gaal is currently with the Dutch at the the World Cup and Herrera admitted really can't wait to work with the former Ajax and Barcelona coach.
"Louis van Gaal is one of the best managers in the world and, for me, I am lucky to be working with him," Herrera told MUTV.
"I want to learn a lot of things and I cannot wait to play with van Gaal, my new team-mates and for Manchester United.
"I'm really excited to go on pre-season to America and play against Roma and Inter Milan."
Herrera then went on to reveal exactly what he will bring to United's squad. He also added that he is ready to test himself at the Premier League.
"I am a midfielder and one of the best qualities I have is that I always want to be involved. I want the ball and want to help my team-mates," he said.
"I know the Premier League and really like it. I think I will grow up in the Premier League. It is one of the best leagues in the world.
Herrera will now soon be catching up with Juan Mata and David de Gea, as he has spoken to his fellow Spaniards about his United move.
"I know they are very happy," he confirmed.
"I was talking to them and they told me this is the biggest club in the world and that we have a very good squad.
"They can help me settle at Manchester United. We are very good friends and I'm sure they will help me adapt at the club."
