When the summer transfer rumour mill at Southampton sparked into gear suggesting that we would be open to selling midfielder Mario Lemina this summer, few fans thought it was a credible line of thought but with the player himself confirming he had a desire for pastures new, it wasn’t long before Manchester United were linked with him.

Three Bids Fail For Southampton Man As He Posts Bizarre Highlights Reel On Social Media

The 25-year-old has made no secret that he’s pushing for a move this summer and he admitted he only planned on honouring two years of the contract he signed back in 2017 as we paid £18.1million to Juventus for his services, but undoubtedly it hasn’t gone how either party would’ve liked given his lack of game time owing to injuries.

With Old Trafford appearing to be the strongest suitor in speculation, the Manchester Evening News claimed on Thursday that their sources had informed them Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had no interest in the player and that they believed they were simply being spoken about in an attempt to spark a bidding war.

With claims of three bids being in this week, obviously Manchester United aren’t one of them – we’ll have to see if Arsenal and Leicester City’s interest is more real.
