So the move is definitely off now then. Here is Southampton forward Sadio Mane telling a young fan that he will not be leaving St Mary's to join Manchester United (watch video below).

The 23-year-old Senegal international has been the subject of interest from United, with the Old Trafford club making an inquiry last week.

As revealed in The Independent yesterday, the Saints will reject all attempts made by United for the player, who signed for the club from Red Bull Salzburg for £11.8m in September 2014.

Mane scored 10 goals for the club in all competitions last season.

Three of those goals were scored in 2minutes and 56 seconds - the quickest hat-trick scored in Premier League history in Southampton's 6-1 victory over Aston Villa back in May.
