The celebrations amongst the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are still running wild after Jose Mourinho delivered them the Europa League.
Not only do Red Devils around the world have yet another European trophy to marvel, they also have Champions League football to look forward to next term.
So, reports linking star midfielder Ander Herrera with a move to Barcelona proved thoroughly unwelcome today. According to Spanish outlet Sport, the La Liga giants are keen on a move for the 27-year-old, should they appoint Ernesto Valverde as their new manager.
Well, such is the nature of Herrera’s importance to United’s cause this season, the idea of him leaving is a very scary one indeed. The former Athletic Bilbao man can surely lay claim to being the best long-term player at Old Trafford in the post-Sir Alex days, so losing him now would be a huge blow.
With that in mind, here’s a look at how Twitter reacted to the Herrera links.
If Barca want Herrera they should bring Neymar + £20 Million and we might listen.

This Barca's interest in Herrera is flattering true or not but they should stay in their lane.

Well I wouldn't mind having Ander Herrera at Barca but since Sport are reporting this, I currently will not pay much attention to the rumor.
