Born and raised in Bilbao, he began his football career at Real Zaragoza, and made his professional debut in the Segunda División in the 2008–09 season. Herrera made 19 debuts that season as the Aragonese club made an immediate return to La Liga. He made his top-flight debut on 29 August 2009, in a 1–0 home win against CD Tenerife.
At the 2009–10 campaign, Herrera was one of Zaragoza’s most featured players as the club managed to retain its top-flight status. He netted his first league goal on 6 December, but in a 4–1 away defeat to RCD Mallorca.
In 2010–11, he continued to feature regularly for Zaragoza, under both José Aurelio Gay and his successor Javier Aguirre.
Athletic Bilbao (2011-2012)
Yet again, nn 7 February 2011, Herrera agreed to join Athletic Bilbao on a five-year contract for a reported fee of €7.5 million effective as of 1 July. Buyout clauses were set at €36 million in his first three seasons and €40 million in the remainder.
Ths Spanish winger made his official appearance for Athletic on 18 August 2011, playing the full 90 minutes in a 0–0 home draw against Trabzonspor in the 2011–12 UEFA Europa League. Herrera appeared in 54 official games in his first year with the Basque club (four goals), who reached both the Copa del Rey and the Europa League finals.
Manchester United (2013)
In 2003, Herrera made headlines with a £24 million offer from Manchester United in August 2013, but the bid was rejected by Athletic Bilbao. A year later, Manchester United offered to sign him again. On 26 June 2014, Athletic Bilbao made public on their official website that they had rejected a €36 million (£28.85 million) bid from Manchester United for Herrera. Athletic Bilbao later confirmed that Herrera had activated his buyout clause, allowing United to sign him. Manchester United announced on the same day they had completed the signing of Herrera on a four-year contract pending the receipt of an International Transfer Certificate.
The Spanish midfielder made his Manchester United debut on 23 July 2014 in the first match of the club’s pre-season tour of the United States, where he played for 90 minutes and making three assists in the 7–0 win over LA Galaxy. Herrrera’s competitive debut came in the opening game of the Premier League season on 16 August, in a 2–1 home defeat to Swansea City. He played 67 minutes before being substituted for Marouane Fellaini. He picked up an injury during training and missed Manchester United’s next two games against Sunderland and Burnley. In his first game back after returning from injury, against Queens Park Rangers on 14 September 2014, he went on to score his first goal for the club and made an assist as Manchester United won the game 4–0. Herrera scored again in United’s next game, flicking in Ángel Di María’s shot with his backheel in their 5–3 defeat to newly promoted Leicester City on 21 September.
On 26 August 2015, in the very first start of the season, he provided an assist for Wayne Rooney’s second goal and scored the fourth goal in a 4–0 win (7–1 aggregate) over Belgian side Club Brugge in the second leg of their Champions League play-off. Hererra scored his second goal of the season from the penalty spot in Manchester United’s 3–1 home win over Liverpool on 12 September. His good form continued with a Man of the Match performance in a 3-0 win against Everton at Goodison Park, in which he netted United’s second – heading in from a Marcos Rojo cross, and assisting Rooney’s goal in the 2nd Half.
By 25 February 2016, Herrera scored his first European goal at Old Trafford – a powerfully converted penalty it was , in the latter stages of a 5-1 defeat of FC Midtjylland,and in the Round of 32 of the Europa League. Later that week, on 28 February, Herrera scored the winning goal in a 3-2 victory over Arsenal. On 23 April, Herrera featured in United’s triumph in the FA Cup Semi-Final over Everton at Wembley. Although coming off the bench as an 87th-minute subsitute for Marouane Fellaini, Herra had a big impact on the game. With the score tied at 1-1, Herrera played a one-two with Anthony Martial, sending the Frenchman through on goal to score a dramatic injury-time winner to seal a 2-1 win and send United through to the final. United went on to beat Crystal Palace 2-1 in the final, securing the cup and Herrera’s first major honour with United.
At the beginning, Herrera’s role was limited to substitute appearances under new manager, José Mourinho, with Marouane Fellaini preferred in midfield alongside club record signing Paul Pogba. He did, however, start in United’s League Cup third round tie versus Northampton Town, and duly registered his first goal of the 2016–17 campaign in his side’s 3–1 win. Herrera was subsequently retained in the starting lineup for the Premier League game against champions Leicester City, and helped his side register a comfortable 4–1 win. He was roundly lauded for his performances both against Leicester City and in the games that followed, and was named man of the match for helping Manchester United restrict free-scoring Liverpool to a 0–0 draw at Anfield.
February 26 was an amazing day for the Spanish midfielder, as he was named in the starting XI for the EFL Cup Final win against Southampton F.C. at Wembley Stadium, and contributed an assist for Zlatan Ibrahimović’s second goal of the match which gave United a 3-2 lead and eventually proved to be the winning goal and secured Herrera’s second major trophy with United, having also won the 2016 FA Cup Final under then United manager Louis van Gaal. Having been sent off against Chelsea F.C. on 13 March at Stamford Bridge in their FA Cup quarter-final match, Herrera turned up with a man of the match display on 16 April against the same team at Old Trafford in the Premier League by shackling Eden Hazard, assisting Marcus Rashford for the first goal, then he himself got on the scoresheet by scoring the second goal which secured a 2-0 victory for United which kept them in the hunt for a top-four finish and extending their unbeaten run to twenty-two matches.
