United were reported to have been keen to bring former Napoli defender Kim Min-jae to Old Trafford. The South Korean however opted for Bayern Munich instead.
National Daily now understands that the Red Devils ‘admire’ Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. United could return to Napoli for the winger, with the futures of Antony and Jadon Sancho at Old Trafford still in doubt.
Antony has been given a leave of absence following allegations of domestic abuse in his native Brazil.
While he denies the accusations and he has not been suspended, it throws his future at the club into doubt.
Sancho cast major doubt on his own future when he essentially called Erik ten Hag a liar. This was following his exclusion from United’s squad to face Arsenal before the international break.

The Dutchman claimed his decision was based on Sancho’s performances in training. Sancho howeversaid he was being used as a ‘scapegoat’ by Ten Hag.
Though Sancho has since deleted the tweet, United were happy to sell him to a Saudi Arabian club before the transfer deadline.
United are therefore assessing their options in the market and the Daily Mail say Napoli ace Kvaratskhelia has admirers at Old Trafford.
The Georgian was sensational last term as the Italians ended their 30-year wait for a Serie A title.
The Italians showed their resolve in keeping Victor Osimhen this summer, despite interest from United and a host of top European clubs.
They are similarly keen to keep Kvaratskheila, and value him at significantly more than £100m.
It would therefore take a club record bid for United to sign the Georgian, but Napoli will listen to interest from the Premier League.
