With Louis van Gaal looking to sign a solid defensive option this summer – and being linked to almost every centre back in Europe – it looked as if the Red Devils had found their man in the young Marquinhos.

But the Daily Express sites sources in France as saying the young Brazilian will sign a new bumper deal with Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain to rule himself out of an proposed transfer move.

However, the move has seen United move quickly and refocus their efforts on signing another South American, Atletico Madrid centre-back Miranda.

And Juan Mata could find himself as part of any deal that brings the 30-year-old to Old Trafford with Diego Simeone’s side said to be keen on bringing the former Chelsea man back to sign.
