Ander Herrera en route to England, flying into Manchester tonight to complete signing with United [AS]

With the news coming in last night that Manchester United had paid Ander Herrera’s €36m buy-out clause, AS report this afternoon that the Basque midfileder is currently at 50,000 feet, en route to England, and set to land into Manchester Airport to complete his signing for Man United.

AS claim that all that’s left is for Herrera to sign on the dotted line, having already completed his medical, and with all the other loose ends tied up.

The Madrid-based paper say Herrera has alreadt bade goodbye to his teammates by telephone, and will do the same to the Athletic Bilbao fans when the time is right.
