Juventus rule out Ander Herrera bid

Serie A champions Juventus have confirmed they are not interested in signing Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera.

The Spaniard has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford after struggling to get a consistent run of first team football under Louis van Gaal.

Herrera is one of several midfielders at the Premier League club, but with Van Gaal mixing up his starting XI and his tactics, it's leaving Herrera on the substitute bench more times than he'd like.

Speaking after their FA Cup clash with Sheffield United, club legend Paul Scholes discussed Herrera and admitted that he doesn't know where his best position is in the team, and he also thinks Van Gaal is clueless on that front too.

Scholes said he was unsure whether Herrera wants to be a number 10 type midfielder or whether he wants to be a central figure.

Herrera's Time at United

The 26-year-old has been at United for two years now, after making a £30million switch from La Liga side Athletic Bilbao back in the summer of 2014.

Since making the transfer, Herrera has made 38 Premier League appearances, scoring eight goals in that time.

However, due to his lack of game-time in recent weeks, he's been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, with Juventus and Valencia both linked with signing the midfielder.

Despite the speculation, The Old Lady have been quick to dismiss their interest as club director Beppe Marotta has ruled out any business this window.

Club Official Dismisses Reports

The Express report Moratta as saying: “We are evaluating the development of the market, but I doubt there will be any big buys in January for the Serie A clubs.

“We will not buy players just for the sake of it, as we already have a very competitive squad.

"We will simply evaluate any possible opportunities that arise."
