Manchester United fans may finally have something to smile about here in the Football Transfer Tavern according to BBC Sport, as they are closing in on a deal for Ander Herrera.
The Red Devils have been chasing the Athletic Bilbao star for some time now and we all remember the rather embarrassing ‘negotiations’ that took place last summer.
Now the club and new manager Louis van Gaal are determined to get it right and have earmarked Herrera as one of their first signings of the Dutchman’s tenure and are willing to spend big money on the long-term target.
As one of our punters notes over a pint and a game of pool, watching the Dutch national team and the link-up between Arjen Robben and Robin van Persie, the winger is the only player they want to hear about signing!
With Spanish midfielder Herrera costing around £30 million, there can be no mistakes. Even with a massive war chest of cash to spend, that is still big money and Manchester United fans will be expecting the player to deliver.
Manchester United fans. Is this a sign that van Gaal is getting the big deals spot on or do you think that there are other better options out there? Let us know your thoughts below.
