Old Trafford

New Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera is enjoying his first weekend in England by watching his countryman Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon.

He may have only been in England a few days, but new Manchester United signing Ander Herrera is not sitting at home twiddling his thumbs waiting for the new season to kick off.  Instead the 24-year-old Spaniard is at Wimbledon this afternoon, watching his countryman Rafael Nadal take on Mikhail Kukushkin in the third round.

Herrera tweeted a picture of himself in the centre-court crowd, along with the message 'Ready to see a legend'.

The match did not go all Nadal's way in the early stages, with each man taking one set apiece.  But as for the legend comment, United fans may be hoping Herrera proves to be one of those himself following his big-money move from Athletic Bilbao.

The 24-year-old has since been joined at United by England left-back Luke Shaw, and with more signings expected, it could be a very different summer this season to last for the United faithful.
