Herrera wants Athletic stay

Ander Herrera will stay at Athletic Bilbao, according to his agent, despite speculation involving Manchester United and Chelsea.

AS reports the Premier League pair have long held interest in the midfielder but Herrera’s agent has said there’s nothing to the gossip and his client wants to play in the Champions League with his current club.

“There’s nothing new. There have been rumours all year saying United wanted to sign him and then Jose Mourinho and Chelsea, but I haven’t heard anything,” Arturo Canales said.

“The focus of the player is Athletic and nothing else. Ander is on vacation and he only thinks about next season with Athletic, because he is very excited to play in the Champions League with this team.”
