Read more Manchester United transfer news.
Manchester United have today completed their first major summer signing, with Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera arriving at Old Trafford for a fee in excess of £30 million.
Having spent his entire career in La Liga, United fans may not be au fait with the talented playmaker, so fanatix have run the rule over the 24 year-old who will go down as Louis van Gaal’s first capture as United boss, coming up with the five most important things to know about Herrera.
1) He wasn’t actually produced by Athletic Bilbao
Due to their Basque-only player policy, Athletic Bilbao are not usually known for signing players, but Herrera was actually bought from Real Zaragoza, despite having been born in Bilbao.
Indeed, Herrera has made almost as many La Liga appearances for now-relegated Zaragoza as he has for his hometown club, meaning that Herrera is more experienced than United fans might initially be expecting.
