It has been reported that Manchester United have failed with a bid for Southampton attacker Sadio Mane.
The Daily Mail says United have failed in an attempt to sign unsettled Southampton forward Mane this month.
United officials have tried to broker a deal with their Saints counterparts this week.
But Old Trafford chiefs have been told in no uncertain terms that Mane is not available this month.
Mane, who would jump at the chance to join the Barclays Premier League giants, is understood to be relaxed about the situation.
