£29 million man welcomed to Man United by former hero

Manchester United coach Nicky Butt has welcomed the arrival of former Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera.

At the end of last month, the youngster was finally captured after a 12-month wait for £29m and Butt was delighted.

As quoted on the Manchester Evening News, Butt said: “I watched Ander a few times last season on scouting trips having a look at him.

“He didn’t play in one match, so that was a waste of time! But he impressed me in the matches I did see him.

“He is a very talented boy and speaks English, which is always a help coming over to England.

“It helps you settle in. It gives you a head start when you get into the dressing room. He seems a nice lad and he is well liked already.”
