Manchester United are being reported to have asked agent Jorge Mendes about another transfer after completing the blockbuster move for Cristiano Ronaldo in this summer's transfer window.

The Red Devils almost looked like they were forced into action to sign Ronaldo after strong reports of him joining Manchester City surfaced, sending United fans into a meltdown.

However, United were in talks with Mendes over another player.

According to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, Manchester United made enquiries about Barcelona youngster Ansu Fati while in dialogue with Mendes over Ronaldo's transfer

The report mentions that the Red Devils asked Mendes whether the Spaniard is available.

Fati is in the final year of his contract at FC Barcelona. The report adds that Fati was initially attracted by United's proposal but Barcelona ruled out any move for their starlet.

The talented youngster has previously also been offered to Manchester City, as reported by Sport, who claim that Mendes wants Fati to gain a new contract at Camp Nou and thus used these techniques to force Barcelona's hand.

Meanwhile Barcelona kicked off their UEFA Champions League's campaign for the 2021-22 season and were thrashed 3-0 by Bayern Munich at the Camp Nou on Matchday 1.
