Ander Herrera is pleased Athletic Bilbao value his performances as more important than money after Manchester United had a bid turned down for the midfielder.

Speaking to El Confidencial, the young midfielder admitted he's happy with life at Athletic Bilbao and can't imagine playing anywhere else.

Manchester United reportedly tried to sign the 24-year-old over the summer as well as last month, although a €20m offer was rejected by the La Liga side.

And Herrera has said he values the fact that his club believe he's worth more than any money United can offer.

"I am happy and proud to see that Athletic considered me more important than United's money," he told El Confidencial.

"The club has clearly expressed its intention not to sale, it is solid and in good economic position. No player of Athletic wants to go."

And Herrera went on to confirm that he thinks he is at the right place for his development despite the opportunity to play Premier League football.

"I'm where I want to be today. I'm not someone who wants to go to six or seven clubs in my career.

"I like to feel good where I am, and this is really the case. Athletic Bilbao is simply the best place for me."

The Spain under-23 star was one of several midfielders linked with Old Trafford over the summer.

The highly-rated youngster was tipped to move to United before David Moyes swooped for Marouane Fellaini, although the report claims Moyes was also interested in January as well.

Central midfield remains a problem for United, with Fellaini sidelined.
