Ajax winger rejected Manchester United move

Neres rejected United move

Ajax winger rejected Manchester United move

08 August 2019 - 18:44

Ajax forward David Neres is reported to have turned down the opportunity of joining Manchester United in favour of committing his future to the Dutch champions.

  • Arsenal defender set to join AS Roma?
  • Arsenal to include Champions League clause in striker's contract?

  • The Red Devils had come up with a late £46m approach for the 22-year-old attacker but the offer was quickly rejected by the Eredivisie outfit.

    However, according to Yahoo! Sport, it was Neres himself, who had rebuffed the move to Old Trafford before penning a contract extension with last season's Champions League finalists.

    Neres, who contributed 12 goals during the previous campaign, had been earmarked as a potential attacking option to replace Romelu Lukaku before the recent transfer deadline.

    United's inability to do so has meant that Lukaku has been offloaded to Inter Milan without a top-class attacking addition barring the arrival of Daniel James from Swansea City.

    United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is now expected to rely on the likes of James, Mason Greenwood and Tahith Chong to provide the attacking depth until the turn of the year at the least.
