The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern have really taken to Ander Herrera this summer…
The Spaniard was only a bit-part player under the previous managership, with appearances often few and far between in the English top flight. Under Jose Mourinho, though, that has certainly changed. Despite a slow start, Herrera has really impressed under the Portuguese, and now he has established himself as one of Man Utd’s most important players.
It was concerning to the fans in the pub, then, when the Spaniard was linked with a move to Barcelona earlier this week. One of Europe’s biggest superpowers, often the might of the Catalan giants is difficult to resist.
However, it seems as though the Red Devils are ready to resist it – with the Independent reporting that Man Utd are not interested in selling Herrera this summer, with Jose Mourinho apparently a big fan of his qualities. Indeed, any move it seems will be quickly shut down, leaving the fans in the Transfer Tavern now confident that he will stay at the club this summer.
Perhaps even more so than his qualities on the field, Herrera’s leadership skills have really come out of the bag this season, with the Spaniard becoming a real leader in the heart of the Man Utd midfield. Often communicating with players and informing them of where to go and what to do, many of the fans in the pub have even touted him as the man to succeed Wayne Rooney as captain.
Our landlord thinks that with a full season under his belt, Herrera could be a revelation next season.
