It’s all happened really quickly for once. Manchester United seemingly went cold on the player after trying to sign him last summer, in a proposed deal which became what can only be described as a debacle.
At around £29 million and without a senior international experience you’d have to ask whether he’s worth the money. Manchester United certainly need a creative midfielder to add some spice and invention to their midfield.
But some might ask if Herrera has been signed because Manchester United failed to snare Cesc Fabregas, who recently went to Chelsea.
Nevertheless, he looks like a step in the right direction for a club which has a paucity of creativity in the midfield since the departure of Paul Scholes. If he can impose himself physically in The Premier League then we could be looking at the next Fabregas.
Manchester United fans reacted to the news with varying degrees of satisfaction. Let’s have a look at some of those comments from Twitter:
