Despite the transfer window being closed, there is always transfer gossip doing the rounds in the papers and we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest news during the coming months. Today, Man Utd are linked with a South American midfielder.
The report claims United were interested in signing the 22-year-old last summer before a potential deal fell through, but it’s understood Sir Alex Ferguson has not given up hope of signing the midfielder and will once again make a move at the end of the current campaign.
talkSPORT report that Herrera is valued at £9m but the Red Devils are likely to face competition for his signature from Porto – where the player is currently on loan. The president of Herrera’s parent club, Pachuca, has confirmed there is interest from teams in England and France but insist the player will only leave in the summer if the money is right.
“There is nothing concrete on the table but there are some attractive offers,”
“It’s not just Porto either, there is also an English and a French club who are interested. We only want him to leave in June if it is a good deal.” Pachuca president Jesus Martinez is quoted as saying by talkSPORT
