Herrera finished his first season at Old Trafford as a regular in Louis van Gaal’s first XI and believes he will continue to see plenty of action despite the new arrivals.

“We want to play in the Champions League, fight for the FA Cup and the Premier League,” Herrera said. “When you want to make a good season, it’s not just with 11 players.

“I wish there were not but there are injuries. And there are good and bad moments for the players so everyone is going to be involved in what I think will be a very good season.”

The Spaniard is looking forward to playing alongside Schweinsteiger, who he believes is one of the top midfielders in the world. 

“He is someone I looked up to coming through the ranks,” added Herrera. “He is one of the five or six best midfielders in the world and of course I have to learn a lot from him, Michael Carrick and others.

“I always want to play with the best players and Bastian is one of the best in the world. I’m sure I am going to learn a lot of things from him.

“He is always safe with the ball. He always knows what is happening behind him and I have to learn that from him.”
