David Moyes saw a £25million bid for the player turned down for Herrera and United were understood to have been prepared to meet his 36million euros release clause.

But a deal didn't happen and the midfielder stayed at Bilbao.

Meanwhile, Moyes turned his attentions to Coentrao having missed out on Everton left-back Leighton Baines.

It seemed he had pulled off an amazing last-ditch coup.

But Press Association Sport understands the paperwork was not completed in time and Coentrao will remain at the Santiago Bernabeu.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
