So you already know that Manchester United have signed Athletic Bilbao's highly-rated midfielder Ander Herrera. He becomes the first signing of United's new boss Louis van Gaal who has promised he will go after trophies as soon as he takes charge at Old Trafford.

While we all know Herrera was pursued by ex-manager David Moyes last year and a deal could not be finalized but this year several things have changed and the Red Devils have completed signing one of their prime targets.

As we await Ander Herrera's first appearance in the Red shirt, here are 3 things you (probably) didn't know about this young Spanish player.
  1. Ander Herrera has never made an appearance for Spain's senior team, though he has represented them at Under-21s, Under-22s and Under-23s.
  2. Ander Herrera is good friends with David De Gea and Juan Mata from a long time and now they play for the same team. Wow!
  3. In order to move to Old Trafford, Ander Herrera paid compensation to Athletic Bilbao after they had rejected United's £28.85 million bid.
