Ander Herrera Denies Barca Approach Amid Reports of Huge New Contract

Manchester United's Ander Herrera denies Barcelona approach

Manchester United's Ander Herrera denies Barcelona approach

Juan Mata has insisted that Manchester United teammate and good friend David de Gea will not leave Old Trafford this summer.

And midfielder Herrera, like United, is determined for his compatriot to stay as he claims De Gea picks up valuable points for his side over the season. However, United failed to reach an agreement with Los Blancos over his transfer fee and instead signed Lukaku in a deal worth around £75m.

Herrera's current contract expires next summer but the Spaniard is expected to sign a bumper new deal over the next fortnight.

"He's happy and I know I sound repetitive because I always say the same thing", said Herrera.

Fellow Spaniard and United midfielder Ander Herrera came out today vowing that he would do "whatever it takes" to convince De Gea to remain at United, indicating just how important the 26-year-old is to the Red Devils.

"Of course I wanted to have Morata as a teammate, he was very close because the two clubs negotiated", he continued. "I prefer to have him with me, so I will do everything possible to have him here".

The club's first competitive match of the new campaign will also be against Real Madrid in the European Super Cup on August 8, however, and Herrera is already looking to the clash in Macedonia.

Ander Herrera and the rest of his United teammates will next take on Real Salt Lake in another global friendly Monday night.

"It's a shame he's not with us but he's a top striker and will do well wherever he plays".
