United failed in a deadline day bid to sign the 24-year-old midfielder from Athletic Bilbao after refusing to meet his £30.5 million release clause.
But David Moyes is still interested in signing Herrera and will send scouts to watch the midfielder against Granada ahead of a potential second attempt to bring Herrera to Old Trafford in January.
Ogden was one of the first to break the news of Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement and is always a reliable source when it comes to United news.
Of all the transfer failures, Herrera’s was the most avoidable. United had cash reserves in excess of £90 million at the start of the summer yet refused to cough up an extra £6 million to secure his signature which was rightfully seen as a terrible decision.
Herrera has intimated he would still be open to a United move in January if the offer came in and by the looks of it, Moyes will be doing his homework this time before making a move for Herrera.
