Manchester Evening News adds that Antonio Conte ‘would not entertain the prospect of having ‘marketable’ players foisted onto him’.

Meantime, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still confident he can turn things around despite the dressing room seeing him as overwhelmed by the situation.

“I do believe in myself, I do believe that I am getting close to what I want with the club,” he said after the defeat to Liverpool.

“I have come too far, we have come too far as a group. We are too close to give up now. The results lately haven’t been good enough, it’s hands up and that brings doubt in anyone’s mind probably, but I’ve got to keep strong and believe in what we’re doing.”
