Man Utd star poised to pen bumper new contract

Herrera:

Herrera: "I thought I'd be playing with Morata at Man United"

The Real Madrid forward was linked with a big-money move to Manchester United, as club manager Jose Mourinho had identified the 24-year-old as a potential replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who was released by the Old Trafford outfit this summer.

Herrera also talked about his global teammate Alvaro Morata who was strongly linked with United before the Red Devils signed Romelu Lukaku.

United insiders believe a bid is imminent as the two sides prepare to face off on their USA pre-season tour on July 23.

The Spaniard played under Valverde at Athletic Bilbao before signing for the Red Devils in 2014, having begun his career with Real Zaragoza.

"I even started to think I'd be playing with Morata".

"Too bad he is not with us but I wish him well".

De Gea has been the subject of strong interest from Madrid for a while now and the Champions League holders are preparing to table another offer for the goalkeeper.

Herrera has revealed that he was relishing the prospect of linking up with the Real Madrid man, and that the deal was indeed very close to coming to fruition.

Herrera's current contract expires next summer but the Spaniard is expected to sign a bumper new deal over the next fortnight.

"I believe [De Gea] is going to stay [at United]", Mata said. It will be their final exhibition against a MLS side before they enter the preseason "tournament" known as the International Champions Cup. I'll be just as motivated.
