Manchester United have failed in an attempt to sign Fiorentina winger Federico Chiesa, according to the Telegraph.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to strengthen the right side of his attack and has made the signing of Jadon Sancho his major priority for the summer transfer window.
But Dortmund have stood firm over their £109.6m asking price and Sancho now looks set to stay with the club for another campaign.
United have been looking at other alternatives to Sancho and have targeted Ousmane Dembele and Watford’s Ismaila Sarr.
But according to The Telegraph, Manchester United have also made an approach to sign Chiesa, but, their offer was turned down by Fiorentina.
The report claims that the Red devils wanted to sign the 22-year-old winger on loan for the campaign.
But the Italian is now believed to be on the verge of moving to Juventus on loan, with the Serie A club having an option to sign permanently for €50m (£45m).
United are also hopeful of signing a new striker and a left-back before this summer window closes.
The club have held negotiations with Porto over a deal for Alex Telles but an agreement over a transfer fee has not yet been concluded.
