Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano insists that despite what the papers reported during the transfer window, Manchester United have never been interested in the services of Barca's Ansu Fati.
The 17-year-old enjoyed a breakthrough 2019-20 campaign for his Catalan club, scoring eight times and providing one assist in 33 outings in all competitions.
United were linked with the Spain international over the summer, with the Red Devils allegedly prepared to pay a large sum to bring the youngster to Old Trafford.
However, according to Romano, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have "never been close" to signing Fati, who recently signed a new long-term contract with Barca, with his release clause being raised to €400m (£367m).
A recent report claimed that Barca had rejected a €150m (£137m) offer for the teenager, although Man United were not officially named as the team in question.
Fati has now scored 13 times in 39 appearances for his current side in all competitions.
