Manchester United Transfer News:Manchester United Make Official Approach for ‘Zorro’ Hector Herrera, But Face Liverpool Competition.
Manchester United have registered their interest for Mexico’s Hector Herrera, his club Pachuca confirmed. The midfielder was the star for Mexico as they won the gold medal at the London Olympics.
However, the talented midfielder is also being tracked by Liverpool, with the Reds voicing their interest officially as well.
“We know he’s going to move to England,” Pachuca sporting director Andres Fassi said. “Manchester United and Liverpool have talked to us.
“We want him to continue with Pachuca. But when he decides to leave, the club will give him the opportunity to do so.”
Alex Ferguson intends to steal Mexican player, Hector Herrera, from Liverpool. Liverpool has offered £10 million for him. Mexican Pachuca CEO confirms: “There is a formal interest, and he is going to move to England, United and Liverpool already approached us”.
Hector Herrera, 22, is aware of the interest in his services, but admitted he hasn’t had any talks with the aforementioned clubs. “The truth is that so far I know nothing about what is happening, I am not aware,” he told Raza Deportiva.
“From what I’ve heard there has been some news, but I have had no approach from the Pachuca club president or the people from Manchester.
“If given the opportunity to move to Europe, of course I’d go but I have to wait to see what the club officials say.”
Herrera, nicknamed “Zorro”, has seen his stock rise considerably over the past year, culminating in the gold medal at the London Olympics, where Mexico beat overwhelming favorites Brazil in the final. “I did not expect it so soon, I did not expect these big clubs to be tracking me after such a short time, but this is the result of the sacrifices I have made,” Herrera said.
The midfielder also played down suggestions he had spoken to Javier Hernandez over a move to Old Trafford. “No, as I said, there wasn’t any approach or any talks. And I haven’t had the pleasure of getting to know Chicharito,” he added.
