RB Leipzig striker Brian Brobbey has reportedly phoned Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag to reject the Manchester club’s proposal.
According to a Dutch outlet de TelegraafThe striker rejected United’s proposal during a personal phone call with Ten Hag.
Manchester United targeted the youngster to cement the front line with the future of last season’s top scorer, Cristiano Ronaldo still unclear.
Ronaldo was reportedly unhappy at Manchester FC after their failure to qualify for the Champions League next season, and has since been linked with a move away from Old Trafford.
Jorge Mendes makes it clear to clubs postponing because of his salary that Cristiano Ronaldo is ready for a significant wage cut, perhaps as high as 30%. Ronaldo is still interested in moving to Atleti. But the club continues to distance itself, as previously reported.

Probe spent the second half of last season on loan with Ajax after a disappointing spell with Red Bull Leipzig, who signed him as a free agent last season, after his contract with Ajax expired.
After the 20-year-old’s loan spell to Ajax, Probe scored seven goals and assisted in one of 11 domestic matches.
The talented youngster has been developed by Ajax’s youth academy and is well known to United’s new manager, Ten Hag.
Unfortunately, it looks like the Red Devil’s coach will have to look elsewhere for a new scorer.
