From ESPN - July 16, 2017

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has played down speculation linking him with a move to Barcelona.

Herrera's former Athletic Bilbao coach Ernesto Valverde has taken charge at Camp Nou, leading to the speculation, but he says he is happy at Old Trafford.

"There is nothing certain about Barcelona because I am very happy at United and I feel valued and focused here," he told journalists after Man United's 5-2 win over LA Galaxy, in quotes reported by Marca.

Herrera also expressed regret that a move to sign Alvaro Morata did not come off.

United failed to reach an agreement with Real Madrid for the striker and signed Romelu Lukaku instead.

"Of course I wanted to have Morata as a teammate, he was very close because the two clubs negotiated," Herrera said. "Too bad he is not with us but I wish him well."
