Athletic Bilbao announce Barcelona target Ernesto Valverde will leave the club

Ernesto Valverde wants to bring Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera to the Camp Nou when he is appointed Barcelona boss, say reports.

Valverde's Athletic contract was set to expire in June after he penned a new deal with the club early past year having taken charge in 2013 for his second spell as manager.

The move follows weeks of speculation which heavily tipped the 53-year-old as Barca's preferred successor to Luis Enrique. The outgoing Athletic Bilbao boss admitted his agent has been approached by some clubs, amid suggestions Arsenal are also tracking his situation.

Valverde played for the Blaugrana from 1988 to 1990 and won a UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and a Copa del Rey with the club.

To make it clear: I have no agreement with any club and I have not spoken with anyone.

" I do not have commitments with any club as of now even if there have been many teams who have had interest in me of late". When I first came here I thought I would only remain for two years. "We made a decision to communicate now so it wouldn't affect the team's progress, although I know it has the cost of speculation. But this is my club, it was my duty to first say farewell to it before I go and consider something else". I have had a lot of doubts, but my work here is done.

However, Mourinho is in no mood to lose one of his best players this season and has demanded Manchester United offer the midfielder a new and lucrative contract in the summer.
