Manchester United are said to have disclosed interest in signing Senegalese winger Sadio Mane from Southampton.
The Old Trafford club reportedly made a bid for the 23-year-old last week; however, the Saints have denied receiving any offer.
United had wanted to sign Barcelona forward Pedro Rodriguez, but have dropped out of the chase with the Spaniard set to join Chelsea.
Mane scored 10 goals in 32 appearances for Southampton last season after joining from Red Bull Salzburg for £10m.
He scored the fastest ever Premier League hat-trick as Southampton defeated Aston Villa at home last season.
