Manchester United’s transfer woes have continued as they reportedly had a loan bid rejected for Fiorentina forward Federico Chiesa.
The Red Devils have been looking into alternatives for Jadon Sancho as Borussia Dortmund remain adamant the £100m forward will be staying in Germany this year.
With just five days until the transfer deadline, it has seen United look into alternatives such as Chiesa, who scored 11 goals in 37 appearances for the Serie A side last season.
But The Telegraph have reported that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has also been shown the door on this deal.
United had approached Fiorentina over the forward over a loan deal – but they would only be interest in a permanent deal.
Manchester United are looking to plot their path back to the top. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already brought in Donny van de Beek but Jadon Sancho remains Manchester United’s number one target.
It is not the first time Solskjaer’s side have had the door slammed in their face while looking for a Sancho alternative.
Watford forward Ismaila Sarr, who scored six goals in his debut Premier League season, emerged as a United target earlier this week.
They were hoping to take advantage of Liverpool ’s unwillingness to pay the Senegalese international’s £40m fee.
But their interest appeared to cool after an opportunity emerged to begin talks with Barcelona over Ousmane Dembele’s availability on loan.
The report, though, suggests the Frenchman has doubts over leaving the Nou Camp while Foeman wants him to stay at the club.
