08.40 UPDATE: Bruno Fernandes decision

Manchester United will reportedly not be moving for Sporting Lisbon star Bruno Fernandes when the transfer window reopens in January.

The Portugal international was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford during the summer window but, ultimately, chose to stay in his home country.

In the time since, Real Madrid have emerged as potential suitors as Zinedine Zidane eyes an upgrade on Luka Modric and Toni Kroos in the middle of the park.

And The Sun say United have no interest in moving for the 24-year-old this winter.

08.05 UPDATE: Mourinho said no

Jose Mourinho refused to sanction a move for Virgil van Dijk before the defender moved to Liverpool, according to reports.

The Portuguese boss signed two centre-backs during his time at the club, Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof, but neither managed to sort out the issue.

Since joining Liverpool, Van Dijk has emerged as one of the leading candidates for the Ballon D’Or, and was named PFA Players’ Player of the Year among a host of individual awards last season.

But according to The Independent, he could have signed for United, before Mourinho said no to a deal.

07.30 UPDATE: Juventus raid

Manchester United could end up losing three stars to Juventus as the Serie A giants are reportedly considering opening talks with David de Gea, Eric Bailly and Nemanja Matic in January.

All three players are currently set to be out of contract next summer and according to Italian publication Gazzetta Dello Sport, Juventus are considering offering contracts to the trio in January, as they would be free to discuss terms with clubs outside of the Premier League.

All three players’ contracts are currently set to expire next June, however, United do have the opportunity to extend the contracts of De Gea and Matic for an additional 12 months.
