Sky Sports News revealed Manchester United’s interest in Marko Arnautovic last week; United saw a £7.6m bid for the former West Ham and Stoke forward rejected last week; Bologna’s asking price for the forward was deemed too high by Erik ten Hag’s side

Manchester United will not be pursuing a deal for Bologna striker Marko Arnautovic.

Sky Sports News revealed last week that United had a bid of £7.6m rejected for the former West Ham and Stoke City forward.

United were expected to go back in with an improved offer, but have decided to move on to other targets.

Bologna’s asking price for the forward was believed to be more than what United were prepared to pay.

Bologna sporting director Marco Di Vaio looked to close the door on United’s attempts to sign Arnautovic, claiming the forward is “priceless”.
