The managerial change at Camp Nou has served to increase speculation surrounding one of Ernesto Valverde’s former players.

Herrera rejects Barcelona interest

Ander Herrera played under Valverde at Athletic Club in 2013, and according to The Times, the coach will try to meet the Manchester United midfielder with the aim of luring him to Camp Nou.

Yet the British newspaper has stated that the midfielder would reject a meeting with Valverde. Herrera has been named as player of the year at Old Trafford, and has the third highest number of appearances this season (50), behind Marcus Rashford (52) and Paul Pogba (51). Only the French midfielder has played more minutes.
