Herrera, 24, could be announced as early as tonight if everything runs without a hitch but at the very latest, pending no last minute catastrophes, Herrera should be announced as a Manchester United player by 1 July.
Our pursuit of Herrera this summer has been the polar opposite of last year. Instead of a long, drawn out process that ultimately ended with United being left empty handed, the transfer story only sprung into life less than 18 hours ago and he is already on his way to Manchester.
It won’t sink in until an announcement from United but after years of yearning, we are on the verge of signing our first genuine, ball playing central midfielder who could make such a difference to the squad (sorry Marouane).
In the mean time while you wait for the announcement, here is an obligatory compilation video of Herrera that makes him look devilishly good.
