Ryan Giggs considers Ander Herrera to be one of the brightest young prospects in Spain and has backed him to be a big hit with Manchester United fans.
Prior to his arrival, it had been what seemed like an eternity since United signed a genuine midfielder with ball playing qualities so Herrera’s arrival immediately caused a huge buzz of excitement.
The 24-year-old has come with certain expectations on his shoulders, as would any €36m signing, but Giggs is delighted that he chose to move to Old Trafford.
“I’m delighted he has made the decision to come to Manchester and play his part in the club’s future,” he told Manutd.com
“Ander is a fantastic young player, with great energy and creativity.
“We believe him to be one of the brightest young prospects in Spain and I am certain he will be a big hit with the United fans. I’m delighted he has made the decision to come to Manchester and play his part in the club’s future.”
Giggs also confirmed that Herrera will see his first bit of action in the reds shirt during the summer tour by saying: “I’m looking forward to seeing him in action on our summer tour to America.”
New midfielders, potential new defenders and a new manager mean there are so many reasons for United fans to be excited about this summer’s pre-season tour of America and with over two months until the transfer window closes, there is every chance more players could join as well.
