Man United turned down chance to sign €25m-rated Serie A midfielder

Red Devils reportedly made an offer to try and land Matias Vecino on loan this month, but their proposal has been rejected by Inter Milan. The midfield is a real problem area for the Norwegian coach, as after seeing Ander Herrera leave last summer and never really filling that void.

He has been dealt a double injury setback with both Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay currently sidelined. That has left them short of quality and depth in that department, and for a club looking to compete on multiple fronts to win trophies, relying on the likes of Fred, Matic and Pereira arguably aren’t enough in the coming months.

With that in mind, Red Devils attempted to try and secure the signing of Matias Vecino on loan, but it’s noted that their proposal wasn’t considered satisfactory by Nerazzurri and so the Serie A club rejected their offer.

It stays to be seen whether or not Man United return with an improved offer to try and prise Uruguay international away from San Siro this month, but he could be considered a solid option to shore things up in midfield given his experience and quality.

Matias has played 17 games so far this campaign, scoring two goals and providing one assist as Antonio Conte’s men continue to battle for the Serie A trophy.

However, Vecino has found himself out of favour over the last three matches, and that has perhaps raised question marks over his future with the Nerazzurri, as Conte has his eyes on Christian Eriksen and Victor Moses to strengthen his squad this month.
