The Star note how Barcelona have been interested in the Spaniard, as coach Ernesto Valverde was linked with sealing a reunion having worked with Herrera previously at Athletic Bilbao.
Speaking to reporters after United's 5-2 pre-season victory over LA Galaxy on Saturday, he said: "There is nothing certain about Barcelona because I am very happy at United", he said after United's 5-2 win over LA Galaxy.
"Of course I wanted to have Morata as a team-mate, he was very close because the two clubs negotiated", he added.
It is also claimed in the same story that Herrera will end up captaining Manchester United for most of the campaign, with official skipper Michael Carrick set to see his playing time limited.

So not only was there little or no chance of signing Herrera but he then has the audacity to rub Real Madrid's current superiority in our faces! "They have won the last two Champions Leagues but a Super Cup final always motivates me".
"I'll be just as motivated".
He's been a sensational player and even though fans would have hoped for him to cement his place in the team earlier, we're glad that he's finally receiving the recognition he deserves.
