Manchester United fail to sign Spanish starlet

herrera.jpgAmazing breaking news has just reached us in the Football Transfer Tavern with Mirror Football revealing that the transfer to take Andre Herrera to Old Trafford is off and the 22-year-old will definitely not be signing for Manchester United during the current transfer window.

Manchester United supporters cannot quite believe the sensational news that has just arrived with the Red Devils reportedly confident of signing the Atletico Bilbao man who was very keen on a move to Old Trafford.

The midfielder has claimed that he will fully explain the bizarre goings-on tomorrow, but for now the Madrid-based paper are claiming that after reaching an agreement with the player, Manchester United representatives failed to deposit the release clause with the LFP (Spanish league).

Moyes had reportedly sent representatives to Spain in order to conclude a deal for Herrera but now all his attention will be focused on his former club Everton as he tries to finally land his prime summer target.

The horror on the small group of United fans huddled around the TV says it all with the possible transfer of Marouane Felliani hanging in the balance with just minutes remaining on the window. The Belgian international is very keen on a reunion with his former player at Old Trafford and he handed a transfer request in at Goodison Park earlier this evening.

Sky Sports have just announced that Wigan midfielder James McCarthy is expected to join Everton after the club’s finally agreed a fee of around £13m for the Republic of Ireland star. Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry is also expected to be signed by the Toffees and that double swoop could pave the way for Fellaini to be confirmed as a Manchester United player.

Will Manchester United sign anyone before the deadline passes? Is Moyes out of his depth at United? Let us know your thoughts below.
