It is alleged that each Real Zaragoza player was handed €120,000 which they were then, bizarrely, said to have been ordered to personally hand to their Levante opponents.

Herrera, who started the fixture in question, is now under investigation for receiving those said funds from former Real Zaragoza president Agepito Iglesias and then failing to declare them to the Anti-Corruption unit.

The Man United man, who moved to Old Trafford this summer, could be called to testify in the case.

Herrera played the first half of Man United’s trip to West Brom on Monday night before being subbed at half-time.
