United have told The Times that "no one had any authority to claim to act for us" in negotiations to sign the Athletic Bilbao midfielder.
There were claims on Monday night that the trio were 'imposters' but it seems that they were actually Spanish sports lawyers Guillermo Gutierrez, Alvaro Reig and Rodrigo Garcia. Their motivation for getting involved in the Herrera deal is unclear.
The Old Trafford club maintain that the deal did not go ahead simply because United were reluctant to meet the £30.5m asking price.
Instead the window closed with them completing a £27.5m deal for Marouane Fellaini, a player who had been available for just £23.5m until the end of July.
