Manchester United have had a £26million bid turned down by Athletic Bilbao for midfielder Ander Herrera.
Herrera has a release clause in his contract at Athletic Bilbao with a buy-out of around £30million, a price that Bilbao will not consider any lower.
Bilbao’s president, Jose Urrutia, said:
“There is an offer for Ander Herrera
“We received it yesterday and we have informed them that we will not negotiate for our players.
“Our club is different, based on sentiment. Our goal is not to make money.”
The latest bid from Manchester United was not the only bid that was placed yesterday, a £36million joint bid for Fellaini and Baines from Everton was also lodged and turned down. Everton manager Martinez is reportedly valuing both players at £25million EACH!!
Will Manchester United sign anyone before the window closes?
