Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui has played down reports that he is interested in signing Porto midfielder Hector Herrera.
Hector Herrera has made almost 200 appearances for Porto since a move from Pachuca in 2013.
His current deal will expire at the end of the season, however, and it is understood that he will move on a free transfer next summer.
Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are also interested in the midfielder’s service according to various reports, while reports in Spain had claimed that Madrid wanted to sign the Mexican ahead of the 2019-2020season.
Lopetegui, however, has branded the rumours “an invention”, with Los Blancos not in the hunt for the midfielder.
