Manchester United have pulled out of the chase to sign, Austrian professional footballer  Marko Arnautovic. 

The Premier League side had been keen to buy the Bologna striker as new manager Erik ten Hag looks to strengthen his options up front.

Siniša Mihajlović’s Bologna had rejected a £6.8m bid from the Red Devils this weekend and reportedly expected United to follow up with a better offer.

The 33-year-old, who worked under Ten Hag and his assistant, Steve McClaren, at Dutch side Twente, was seen by the club as an experienced, versatile and low-cost option to bolster their attacking ranks.

He caught the eye after scoring 14 goals in 33 appearances for the Serie A side last season, but Bologna’s insistence he was not available for transfer meant United have walked away from the deal.

United are desperate to strengthen, with Anthony Martial injured and 37-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo openly wanting to leave Old Trafford this summer.
