Ander Herrera happy at Athletic Bilbao

Ander Herrera says that he is in the "perfect place" at Athletic Bilbao, despite the summer interest from Manchester United.

Reported Manchester United transfer target Ander Herrera has insisted that he is happy to be an Athletic Bilbao player.

The Red Devils attempted to sign the 24-year-old during the summer transfer window, but they were unable to convince Bilbao to part with their midfielder.

However, rather than be disappointed that a move to the Premier League champions fell through, Herrera has claimed that Bilbao is the "perfect place" for him.

""I appreciate very much that Manchester United made a very important offer for me and also that Athletic did not accept it," he told Canal+. "That means that Athletic value me above money and trust in their project more than a large offer.

"I'm where I wanted to be in this day, not someone who has played for six or seven clubs. I like to feel good where I am, take root and Athletic is the perfect place for me."

Herrera has made 10 appearances for his Basque employers this term.
