Herrera - who was named the Red Devils' player of the year last season - started an online war by posting a video of him playing beach football and trying out his goalkeeping skills.

New Barcelona manager, Ernesto Valverde has targeted the player as a signing he would love to make as a midfielder for the Camp Nou outfit, but United have stood firm in their resolve not to let him go, meaning that the Catalan giants will have to look elsewhere for a midfielder.

However, the United midfielder has now put an end to speculation saying he was not willing to leave the club this summer at any cost.

Manchester United want to keep Herrera at the club amid concerns Barcelona could swoop for the Spain global.

"There is nothing certain about Barcelona because I am very happy at United", said Herrera on Saturday evening.

United failed to reach an agreement with Real Madrid for the striker and signed Romelu Lukaku instead. Ander Herrera talked Morata too; expressing his dismay that he won't have him as a new teammate this season.

"Real Madrid in the European Super Cup? are the strongest team right now, they've won the last two Champions Leagues, but a Super Cup Final always motivates you".

"I'll be just as motivated".

"Getting back into the Champions League was fundamental to the club because we are going to be one of the rivals to beat".

After all, Herrera paid up his contract at his previous club to move to the Premier league and join Manchester United.
