By Dean Wilkins

Olympic gold medal winner Hector Herrera has attracted ‘official interest’ from Manchester United, as the club consider a £10million move for the Mexican.

The 22-year-old claimed gold after a 2-1 win over Brazil in the Olympic final and earned interest from some of Europe’s biggest clubs as Liverpool and Roma join United in the hunt.

And despite picking up an ankle injury during the final at Wembley, the Pachuca star – nicknamed Zorro – could replace Lucas Moura as United’s playmaking target.

Manchester United are considering a £10 million move for Mexico midfielder Hector Herrera – nicknamed Zorro.

Pachuca sporting director Andres Fassi said: “There is an official interest. We have the document, but there’s nothing else to add at this time.”

“We want him to continue in Pachuca. We know he’s going to emigrate to England, though. Manchester United and Liverpool have talked to us.

“At whatever moment he wants, he can leave Pachuca and the club will give him the opportunity to do so.”
