Following reports all week that Ander Herrera was set to sign for United, after reportedly visiting Carrington yesterday, Athletic Bilbao have released a statement claiming they have rejected a bid for the player.
They claim that United have offered £28.85m (€36m) for the midfielder but that price does not meet their estimation.
The statement read: “The Athletic Club wishes to report that this week it rejected an offer from Manchester United FC, estimated at €36m, to transfer the federation and economic rights of the player Ander Herrera.”
As with Marouane Fellaini last summer, Herrera reportedly has a clause in his contract that means if we wait until July to sign the player, his transfer fee will increase.
