Herrera signs at United, Shaw to follow?
Manchester United have clinched the signing of Ander Herrera (right) as confirmed by the club's official website. Earlier in the day Athletic Bilbao announced they had turned down an offer from the Red Devils, but it was ironed out within hours. Herrera had to pay out the remainder of his contract to seal the transfer, which sees him sign a four-year deal with an option to extend to a fifth.
