Manchester United's Ander Herrera plays down Barcelona link

Manchester United star Ander Herrera is close to signing a new lucrative deal

Manchester United star Ander Herrera is close to signing a new lucrative deal

However, it appears as though it will be switched to rewarding key individuals in the next day or two, with The Daily Star reporting that Herrera will pen a new deal worth £200,000-a-week plus bonuses over four years.

And the midfielder has dismissed speculation surrounding a move, insisting he is happy where he is.

"There is nothing certain about Barcelona because I am very happy at United and I feel valued and focused here", Herrera told reporters in postgame (transcription via Marca).

Manchester United want to keep Herrera at the club amid concerns Barcelona could swoop for the Spain worldwide.

"Morata? Of course, I began to see Morata as a teammate, it was very close because the two clubs were in talks".

"Madrid are the most powerful team of the moment", Herrera suggested.

"I am just as motivated, of course, playing against Real Madrid and it's a good test for us".

"Getting back into the Champions League was fundamental to the club because we are going to be one of the rivals to beat".

Arsenal now focused on Thomas Lemar
The French champions have already lost Bernardo Silva to Manchester City, with Benjamin Mendy expected to follow him shortly. Lemar has been one of the Gunners top transfer targets of the summer window, with a £40m move being speculated.

Herrera earned plenty of praise for his performances for Manchester United under Mourinho last season as he helped the Red Devils win the EFL Cup and Europa League in the Portuguese coach's first campaign in charge.

Retrounited reported last week that Herrera is set for a huge pay rise on his current deal to ward off interest from Barcelona.

The midfielder's contract expires next summer, so Mourinho is keen to seal the deal as quickly as possible.
