Manchester United have failed to sign Tottenham striker Dane Scarlett after he opted for a new contract to remain at the club.

The teenager became Spurs’ youngest debutant of the 2020/21 season when he appeared at the age of 16 years and 247 days.

Scarlett had caught the eye of United due to his contract situation, with the striker’s current contract expiring at the end of the season.

The MEN allege that Matt Judge – United’s outgoing director of football negotiations – made a move for Scarlett last month when he made a request to the striker’s representatives.

However, he was told that Scarlett had informally agreed a contract extension with the club.

Erik ten Hag is aiming to sign at least one forward this summer, with the Dutchman adamant to keep Cristiano Ronaldo at the club.

Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Edinson Cavani are on the verge of retirement and Ten Hag would like a flexible striker who can play in multiple positions.

Antony, the Ajax winger, is another target for the club but the Dutch giants will fight tooth and nail to keep the Brazilian as they fear an exodus following Ten Hag’s departure.
