United reject making emergency move for Llorente

Manchester United have decided not to make an emergency move for ex-Tottenham forward, Fernando Llorente, who is available as a free agent, despite the club facing a striker crisis.

With both Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sánchez now departed for Inter Milan, sold and on loan respectively, United find themselves short of forward options for their visit to Southampton on Saturday.

Frenchman Anthony Martial picked up a thigh injury in the home defeat to Crystal Palace and is likely to be missing for several weeks, meaning that only 17 year old Mason Greenwood is available to partner Marcus Rashford in attack.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has decided to resist the temptation to make a move for the 34-year old Spaniard, believing that quick fixes produce as many problems as they solve.

Llorente continues meanwhile to be linked to a switch to Serie A, with Lazio, Napoli and Fiorentina interested in signing the former Juventus striker.
