Ander Herrera en route to Manchester to complete United transfer

It is the signing that seemed to come out of nowhere, but now Ander Herrera is en route from Bilbao into Manchester to complete his signing for Manchester United in a £28million deal, according to AS.

Ander Herrera flies to Manchester after having already completed his Manchester United medical over in Spain on Tuesday afternoon.

Herrera, has already said his goodbyes to his now old, Athletic Bilbao team-mates by telephone. All is set for the transfer to be completed on Tuesday evening after he let his feeling be known of his desire to join Manchester United by telling the Bilbao director on Monday evening. He will now join up with fellow Spaniards Juan Mata and David De Gea at Old Trafford.

Manchester United have triggered his release clause in his contract with Athletic Bilbao, which currently stands at £28million – This clause was due to rise from the 1st July 2014 thus why CEO Ed Woodward has acted quickly and, all bering a massive mistake in proceedings, has secured the signature of Ander Herrera.
