Herrera deal "in the balance", United "confident" on Fellaini

Jamie McDonald

Manchester United remain confident of signing Marouane Fellaini, but a deal for Ander Herrera has hit a snag, according to ESPN.

Manchester United's deal for Ander Herrera has hit a snag, but the club remain confident of signing Marouane Fellaini according to ESPN'S Miguel Delaney.

Delaney is usually reliable with United business, and reports that "bureaucratic" issues have caused the Herrera deal to be delayed and possibly thrown into turmoil. United may possibly have up til midnight to complete that deal, but whether that will be enough time, we simply don't know.

The good news is that the club are more confident of signing Marouane Fellaini - a loan deal for Nick Powell has now gone ahead, despite Dave Whelan's previous outburst, but there is no news on James McCarthy. Despite that, it looks like Fellaini could still be a United player within the hour.

As for Herrera, it's desperately bad news, but it's not all over yet - there's still a chance to get it done. Reports in Spain are slightly more optimistic. More as we get it....
