Barcelona have rejuvenated their interest in signing Andre Herrera from Manchester United according to Express. The midfielder is now their #1 target after moves for Marco Verratti and Philippe Coutinho failed.

Herrara spoke about the Catalan side’s interest in him last week and assured the Red Devils faithful that he was not interested in moving. “There is nothing certain about Barcelona because I am very happy at United and I feel valued and focused here,” he said Manchester United’s 5-2 win over LA Galaxy.

The Spain international, who joined United three years ago in a £28 million move from Athletic Bilbao, has 12 months remaining on his current deal with the option of a 12-month extension.But Jose Mourinho sees Herrera – who has been targeted by Spanish giants Barcelona as a possible long-term successor to Andres Iniesta – as a key part of his plans.

 And United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward met with Herrera’s agent Arturo Canales in Washington during the club’s pre-season tour of America to discuss new terms in a bid to secure the 27-year-old’s long-term future at the club.

Barcelona have had their moves for Verratti and Coutinho rejected after both Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool refused to listen to their offers. The Catalan side are finding it difficult to sign a long-term replacement for Iniesta.

For Verratti, Barcelona were ready to pay up to £90 million. However, Paris Saint-Germain refused to even listen to their offer. As the Spanish side kept coming back with fresh offers, the Ligue 1 side made a counter move and have now activated Neymar’s €222 million worth release clause.

This made Barcelona move for Coutinho and their offers again fell on deaf ears. Liverpool have rejected two bids worth £72 million and £80 million for the Brazilan star and are determined to keep hold of him. Coutinho too isn’t too keen on moving to Camp Nou this summer as his best friend, Neymar, might be leaving the club.

Herrera has indicated he is keen to remain at Old Trafford after emerging as one of the most influential players in Mourinho’s side last season when he was tipped as a possible future captain of the club.

Mourinho will take his squad to Oslo for a game against Valerenga tomorrow before facing Sampdoria in Dublin three days later in their final warm up match ahead of the European Super Cup final against Real Madrid in Macedonia on August 8.

So,Barcelona will try thier best to convince Herrera to join them so that he can work with his former boss, Ernesto Valverde. The duo worked together for a short time at Athletic Bilbao and the manager wants to use that connection to lure him to Camp Nou.
