Ander Herrera has admitted it is a dream come true to sign for Manchester United and said he can’t wait to get his career started at Old Trafford.
The arrival of Herrera ends a negotiation process which started 12 months ago when we failed to sign the 24-year-old last summer but good things come to those who wait and Herrera is now officially a United player.
Speaking to Manutd.com, Herrera said a special thank you to Athletic Bilbao for the time he spent at the club but couldn’t hide his excitement at joining United.
“Signing for Manchester United is a dream come true,” he said.
“I have played at Old Trafford for Athletic Club in the UEFA Europa League and it was one of the highlights of my career so far. I have joined United to do all I can to help the team reach the club’s objectives.
“Having arrived on Tuesday, I’m excited to now be living in Manchester and I can’t wait for my first game in United’s famous red shirt.
“I will never forget my time with Athletic Club and I’d like to thank the fans and staff for all their support and, above all, wish all my fantastic former team-mates all the best for the future.”
Welcome to Manchester, Ander.
