United Warned Off Ander Herrera

The president of Spanish La Liga side, Athletic Bilbao, has warned Manchester United not to bid for Ander Herrera again.

The Red Devils made a mystery enshrouded move for midfielder Herrera on transfer deadline, but were ultimately thwarted.

United manager David Motes has reportedly been promised money to spend on transfer in January, in a bid to arrest the club’s faltering title defence.

Herrera is said to remain a brightly flickering spark on Moyes’ transfer radar, with United keen to pay upwards of £30 million to sign him.

But following the deadline day drama, Bilbao president, Josu Urrutia, says the subject of Herrera to United is “closed”.

He does not want the highly rated youngster to leave Bilbao, and has advised him to focus on Bilbao, to whom he remains contracted.

"I don't know what other teams will do, but I consider the Herrera issue to be closed," Urrutia told a press conference.

"Ander has a contract until 2016. All players have to focus on giving Athletic all you can give."
