Liverpool have reportedly received six enquiries from Premier League clubs to take their young striker Rhian Brewster on loan.
The 20-year-old, who impressed on loan at Swansea last season, scoring 11 goals in 22 appearances, had been linked with a move to Bramall Lane earlier in the transfer window.
However, Yorkshire Live’s sister title the Liverpool Echo, says United are not one of the clubs chasing the exciting prospect.
It claims Aston Villa, Newcastle United, Crystal Palace, Brighton, Burnley and newly-promoted Fulham have all asked about the prospect of taking Brewster on loan in 2020/21.
They also report that Championship trio Norwich City, Bournemouth and Watford – recently relegated from the Premier League – have also been in touch.
But Liverpool sources have told the Echo that a decision on Brewster’s future won’t be rushed and that he will continue to train with Jurgen Klopp’s side at their pre-season camp in Saalfelden, Austria.
The Echo says Liverpool will make sure any loan move away from Anfield will be to either a Premier League club or a top-flight European outfit.
The striker said he is open to another loan move but would ideally hope to be in Klopp’s plans. He told the Echo: “Of course I want to be at Liverpool next season, be fighting for a spot to play.
“Who is not going to want to play at the home of the champions?
“Of course you’re not really wanting to go on loan but if that’s the best thing for me to do in that situation, so I’m going to get more game-time then that’s what I’m going to do.
“But realistically, I want to play at Liverpool, I want to be ‘the striker’.”
