For months they have been trying to lure a defensive midfielder to the club but each and every time they target a player, the move is either blocked or refused.
And it does not look to be getting any more straightforward for Louis van Gaal’s men as according to the Daily Express, Nigel de Jong will also turn down their advances.
The Dutch international was linked with a move to the Old Trafford club during the summer after unsuccessful swoops for Juventus duo Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba.
However, it now appears that the former Manchester City man will reject any advances from the Premier League giants in favour of an extended stay at AC Milan.
Dutch giants Ajax had also been keeping tabs on de Jong’s contractual status but it seems the 29-year-old is happy to remain in Italy.
Reports claim that the midfielder is keen to discuss a new deal at the club within the next few weeks.
