Valverde pushing Barcelona to bid for Man Utd midfielder Herrera

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde has again championed the prospect of Ander Herrera arriving this summer.

The Manchester United midfielder's future remains clouded, with the player still weighing up whether to commit to a long-term contract.

Herrera worked with Valverde at Athletic Bilbao and the Barca coach remains a big admirer.

Don Balon says he has put Herrera's name forward as they seek to strengthen their midfield options for next season.

Despite the expected arrival of Arthur Melo from Gremio, Barca remain keen on finding another midfielder and Valverde is pushing for a bid to be made for Herrera.
