Manchester United are not done with their summer shopping just yet as the Daily Mail revealed that the Red Devils are prepared to combat Liverpool for the signature of Hector Herrera, a key star of Mexico's gold medal winning Olympics campaign.
The 22 year-old midfielder, nicknamed Zorro, has played for Mexican sides Cuautla and Tampico Madero. He currently plays for Mexican club Pachuca, having joined them in 2010. The midfielder is a regular feature of Mexico's Under-23 squad and has garnered quite some attention in his time with the youth side.
Manchester United are considering making a Â£10 million move for the budding midfielder, especially after their bid for Brazilian star Lucas Moura was foiled by French giants PSG. The midfielder is currently out of action due to an ankle injury and United hope to seal the deal before Liverpool, who could launch their own bid for the Mexican this summer.
Pachuca sporting director Andres Fassi confirmed the rumours, saying, "There is an official interest. We have the document, but there's nothing else to add at this time."
United's midfield woes last season has forced Ferguson to make buys aplenty to bolster the squad. Shinji Kagawa and youngster Nick Powell are the latest midfield stars to join the Red Devils and Ferguson is preparing to add another midfield option as United set out to reclaim domestic and European glory in the coming season.
