Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele will not make a deadline day move to Manchester United, according to reports from France.
The Blaugrana have endured a torrid summer as after they were knocked out of the Champions League in a 8-2 humiliation by Bayern, head coach Quique Setien was sacked and replaced by Ronald Koeman, while Lionel Messi requested to leave.
Messi ended up staying for at least another season, but Koeman was tasked with getting rid of any dead wood that he deemed surplus to requirements in his squad.
Luis Suarez left for Atletico, while Arturo Vidal and Ivan Rakitic also departed for cut-price fees.
Barcelona were reportedly open to allowing Dembele leave, too, with him unable to find form of fitness since his massive money move from Dortmund.
Man Utd, unable to sign primary target Jadon Sancho, had identified Dembele as an alternative to sign on a permanent deal or on loan with the option to purchase next summer.
However, with just one day left of the transfer window remaining, there are no further ongoing negotiations.
According to RMC Sport, Dembele will not leave this summer, and is focused on trying to break into the Barcelona team.
He has been used sparingly by Koeman so far this season, though, and failed to make it off the bench in Barcelona's 1-1 draw versus Sevilla on Sunday.
On the same day as Barca's match against Sevilla, Man Utd were embarrassed 6-1 at home by Spurs.
