ATHLETIC BILBAO HAVE rejected a bid in the region of €36million from Manchester United for midfielder Ander Herrera.

Bilbao confirmed today that United this week tabled an offer for the 24-year-old and that it has been rebuffed. Former Spain Under-21 international Herrera was reportedly set to join United last season but the transfer fell through on the final day of the transfer window.

Herrera moved to Bilbao from Real Zaragoza in 2011, and was part of the team that were finalists in the Copa del Rey and UEFA Europa League in 2011-12. Bilbao beat United on the way to the showpiece of the Europa League, only to lose to Atletico Madrid.

In his three years at San Mames, Herrera has made 128 appearances and scored 11 goals.
