Athletic Bilbao coach Ernesto Valverde does not expect midfielder Ander Herrera to join Manchester United, despite leaving the player out of his side for Sunday's 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid.
– Athletic Bilbao manager Ernesto Valverde
It had nothing to do with the bid from Manchester United, I left him out because I chose the players I thought were best suited to the game.
I'm not thinking about speaking to him to convince him about anything and I'm not worried about anything else.
I haven't spoken with the player but what I'm going to repeat is that I don't expect the club to make any moves in the transfer market tomorrow (Monday).
I do not know what will happen. I want Ander to stay with us, and that is what I think, expect will happen.
Ander Herrera will start today's game from the bench.
Athletic Bilbao XI: Iago Herrerín - Iraola, Gurpegi, Laporte, Balenziaga - Iturraspe, Mikel Rico, Beñat - Susaeta, Muniain & Aduriz.
Athletic Bilbao bench: Iraizoz, Erik Morán, Ander Herrera, Albizua, Ibai, San José & De Marcos.
