According to Mexican media, Manchester United are now the favorites to land Pachuca midfielder Hector Herrera. Hector came into spotlight with his gold medal winning performances in London Olympics earlier this year.
United boss Sir Alex Ferguson usually don’t prefer signing players in January, but with a breathtaking Real Madrid clash coming up in the Champions League, he may be tempted to strengthen his squad. They still lack a creative midfielder and Hector Herrera will be a perfect fit.
Herrera is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in South America, a reputation he confirmed by winning the newcomer of the Year award for his performances for Pachuca last year.
