It’s a deal which, when first mooted last summer, understandably set pulses racing in Manchester.
And it seems Twitter was more than pleased when the news trickled through about the Herrera deal nearing the finishing line:

Just woke up in Brazil. The @anderherrera8 stories are true. He´s a top lad who loves football culture and he´s going to be a great player.

Ander Herrera to Manchester United for £30m sounds a bit excessive, but he'll be such a great signing. #MUFC

What a great signing by the way. He is as good as number 10 or centre mid. A clever player, an intelligent young man this @anderherrera8

Ander Herrera is what Cesc Fabregas was five years ago.

Is it time to rewatch all those Ander Herrera videos bookmarked since last summer again…

Not sure how I feel about Ander Herrera, although anyone who says they play centre midfield should interest us #MUFC
