Report: Manchester United make decision on shock transfer target


Manchester United have reportedly made a final decision on a shock transfer target after backlash from supporters.

Reports surfaced on Sunday that the Red Devils were looking to make a move for Bologna striker Marko Arnautovic as an 'emergency option'

The Red Devils have only made three signings in the current transfer window, while Cristiano Ronaldo continues to be linked with a departure.

The Athletic have reported that the Manchester outfit have now decided against making a move for the former West Ham United striker after complaints from fans.

It is also believed that United backed out of a deal as Bologna were pricing the club out of a move after a reported £7.6million bid was rejected.

Bologna director Marco Di Vaio did, however, claim that they don't intend to lose the striker ahead of the Serie A season returning this weekend.

"We want to keep going with Arnautovic and keep him, he's at the centre of our project," Di Vaio told Italia 1.

"Bologna's wish now is to keep our current team and strengthen it in order to have an important season. Money is not the issue, Marko is priceless for us."
