Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera is reportedly one of 41 men to be named in the case of alleged match-fixing that relates to a game between Real Zaragoza and Levante.

Herrera was playing for Zaragoza at the time of the alleged incident and the Guardian reports that the case has now been filed in a Valencia court.

The case alleges that Levante players received payment that was initially paid into the bank accounts of a number of Zaragoza players before being withdrawn as cash, and the judge overseeing the case will now reportedly decide whether to proceed.

In other news, the same newspaper reports that United are hopeful defender Marcos Rojo will be fit for the club’s next Premier League game despite not featuring against Liverpool.

The Argentine international missed United’s 3-0 victory with a thigh injury but it is claimed the club are hopeful he will be available for the weekend trip to Villa Park.
