It has now been revealed that Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele is not the only one that rejected a move to Man United, if the claims by transfer specialist, Fabrizio Romano is to be believed.

The transfer journalist revealed that Federico Chiesa was also supposed to make a move to the Old Trafford as the Red Devils made an attempt to snap him up by reaching out to his agent.

Federico Chiesa reportedly rejected the offer from the Red Devils as he was more interested in staying in Italy than moving to the English Premier League.

However, reports claim that he already has an agreement with Juventus and could make a move to join the Old Lady in the next transfer window.

Meanwhile, Ousmane Dembele rejected an opportunity to join Man United despite the nod given by the Spanish La Liga outfit as he will not be favoured for selection in the team.

It is understood that Barcelona chiefs are unhappy with the Frenchman for failing to agree on a deal with Man United describing him as lacking ambition.

The list of those that rejected a move to the Old Trafford will not be complete without mentioning Wales international Gareth Bale who opted to join Tottenham instead.
