DONE – Man United Splash €75m & Complete Double Deal

Luke Shaw SouthamtonManchester United fans have waited for far too long for the first signing to arrive and it is in fact a double delight now.

The Red Devils have assured their fans they mean business in this transfer window and will lure top stars to reinforce squad.

After the disaster of last season, the Old Trafford club has completed deals for two superstars.

According to Express, new manager Louis van Gaal has splashed €75m to complete double deal for two long term targets in Southampton’s Luke Shaw and Athletic Bilbao’s Ander Herrera.

As per the provided link, Saints have finally accepted a €41m bid for the England international who is expected to complete his medical today and seal United deal.

Why are Manchester United so Interested in Spanish Star Ander HerreraOn the other hand, Manchester United have officially announced the signing of Ander Herrera.

United activated the release clause in his contract and despite some complexities added by Athletic club, the deal was completed.

Herrera was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford last summer as well but a lot has changed since then. United were champions and were playing in the Champions league, now they will not even feature in Europe.

Fans will hope that another midfield signing will arrive to solve the conundrum of last season. Having being linked with the likes of Kroos, Strootman etc, United have opted to lure Herrera as the first signing for Van Gaal.

Nevertheless, United needed a top quality midfielder for long term and Herrera completely fits the bill.

    Good players and good signing, but we stil need Vidal, Rubben, Hummel and De Jong, but Luk Shaw’s transfer fee is a crazy one, we would ve used the money for to get two tallented midfieders.

    When I heard that United hv sign Ander Herrera, I thought is one of the cock and bull story I used to read here until I confirmed it frm three sources that it’s true. As Luke Shaw’s deal is a done one also,we should not forget to fill the vacuum left by this great icon – Vidic. A solid centre back is needed in United like never before- Humel, Miranda and a host of others should be United next purchase. Kudos to LvG ! I cant wait to see him fully incharge of United.

    A very nice one but Man. Utd need to bring in centre back and agressive midfielder. Players like Vidal, Miranda, De jong, Hummel, Shuenstiger, Rubben etc. Players like Young, Fletcher, Cleverly and Smalling should be discarded to pay way for good new players.
