Manchester United to announce £30m midfield signing within hours

Manchester United will reportedly announce the signing of Ander Herrera imminently, according to Spanish radio station Cadena Ser.

Manchester United are set to complete their first signing of the summer window, according to Spanish radio.

Cadena Ser have reported that Ander Herrera will soon join United for 30m euro, as the club have decided to finally stump up his release clause.

Cadena are reportedly fairly reliable, and of course we know United were interested before after *that* deadline day.

Now, TBB would be delighted if this came to pass. Every time we've seen him he's looked great - a calm eye for either a sensible or a decisive pass, excellent on the ball, and feisty to boot. His career had stalled somewhat but there's no doubt that if we're looking to improve the two midfield positions then he'd be perfect for one of them.

Hopefully this is real, and we can look forward to an announcement soon. We'd even stopped cheering on Louis van Gaal at the World Cup owing to his prolonged participation meaning more time in charge for Ed Woodward. Fingers crossed.
