Gerard Pique: Ernesto Valverde would be a "good option" for Barcelona

Ernesto Valverde - who is expected to be named as the new Barcelona coach on Monday - reportedly wants to sign Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera.

Athletic Bilbao released a two-line statement which confirmed that Valverde will not continue as their manager next season.

The Spanish giants are searching for a replacement for Luis Enrique, who announced at the start of March he would leave at season's end.

He previously managed Barcelona's city rivals Espanyol.

But Valverde said that he had no agreements with any club and not spoken directly to anyone.


When pressed further about the supposed interest from Barcelona, he added: "I'm not going to talk about specific teams now".

Valverde stepped down as Athletic Bilbao boss this week and had his farewell press conference with the Basque club on Wednesday.

However, he has coached Bilbao Athletic, the club's B team, over the past six seasons and led them to promotion to the second tier in the 2014/15 campaign.

"I do have an agent, and there are clubs that are interested in me".

"It is not my job and I haven't spent a lot of time thinking about it". I feel my work here is done. "We chose to communicate now so it wouldn't affect the team's progress, although I know it has the cost of speculation". "I think it's good to have movement in football, for someone new to come along and have fresh ideas".
