MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly failed with a bid to sign Inter Milan midfielder Matias Vecino on loan.
The two clubs are no strangers to doing business with each other but the Italians are standing firm over the Uruguayan.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is desperate for a new midfielder while Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay are injured.
And their pursuit of Sporting CP playmaker Bruno Fernandes appears to have stalled.
That has moved their interest towards Vecino, 28, but Sky Sports Italia claim Inter have rejected their loan bid.
A refreshed offer may have to arrive fast, too.
Inter are reportedly in talks with Napoli over a swap deal involving Vecino and Brazilian ace Allan.
As part of Antonio Conte's much improved Nerazzurri this campaign, Vecino has made 11 starts along with a handful of sub appearances.
Fans may not feel that he is up to the level of Portuguese international Fernandes, who appears no closer to a move after weeks of negotiations.
But Solskjaer is also in need of bodies with only Fred, Nemanja Matic, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata capable of anchoring his midfield.
