Reports earlier this week claimed that Barcelona’s incoming manager, Ernesto Valverde has made Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera his top transfer target this summer ahead of joining the Catalans.
Sources from Old Trafford have come out to clarify the club’s position. Per the source, the Red Devils are not ready to discuss the transfer of Ander Herrera this summer with any other club, as they seek to keep hold of the Spaniard who was one of their most important players this season.
Herrera’s man-marking of Eden Hazard when the two teams met at Old Trafford this season has been hailed as one of the best individual performances by a midfielder this season. That performance was just one of many top class performances that earned him the club’s player of the season award.
Barcelona has fallen behind Real Madrid this season, and Ernesto Valverde knows that he would have to majorly overhaul his playing squad this season if he wants to get the Catalans back to winning trophies like they have been accustomed to. He wants Herrera who he managed for one season at Bilbao to join him in the restructuring of the Catalan giants.
