The Mirror says a midfield injury crisis has left United struggling for depth in the centre of the park and David Moyes is actively looking for recruits in January.
Herrera said: "I appreciate both Manchester United's interest in me and the fact that I am considered so important to Athletic that they did not accept any bid for me.
"That means that Athletic values me above money and trust in me more than money for our current project. I'm right where I want to be. I'm not a player who wants to change teams, I've taken root at Athletic and it is the perfect place for me to be."
