While press, fans and his club are well aware of the chances that Pachuca midfielder Hector Herrera has to play in the Premier League soon, it seems that the only person left in the dark is Herrera himself.

The 22-year-old midfielder told ESPN that he has not had any contact with any of the interested clubs nor is he aware of any offers made in order to sign him.

"I don't know anything at the moment," Herrera told Raza Deportiva. "I found out about it thanks to the newspapers but I haven't spoken to anyone, not even Pachuca's president," he continued.

Following a great Olympic tournament at London 2012, Herrera's stock rose immediately, despite a previous interest from Liverpool for himself and Pachuca teammate Marco Bueno.

Reports are now placing Herrera's price tag at over 10 million euros after Manchester United entered the race to land him.

"I haven't had any type of contact or meeting with anyone, and in Manchester's case, I haven't had the pleasure of even meeting Chicharito," said Herrera, referring to United's resident Mexican player, Javier Hernandez.

Herrera is currently recovering from an injury he sustained at the Olympics that will keep him out until mid-September, where he will be expected to become a mainstay in Hugo Sanchez's lineup at Pachuca if he is not transferred out before then.
