Man U

Twitter reacts to the presence of Manchester United’s new playmaker?


Worth the cash?

Reports today suggest that Manchester United’s long-term target Ander Herrera has passed a medical at the club and that the deal to join United will be finalised in the coming days.

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:

    Ader Herrera is a player of high quality and all a creativity player infact he is full of confident; with all this i think he will be a great and fearful player in @manutd

    He is a player of high quality,all round mf..can score tackle and split defences with his pinpoint passes,but this buy wont be enough he needs a strong mf eg strootman or de jong to get best out of him.Buying 2 centerback a fullback and a winger
