The defender had been earmarked as a potential signing by Jose Mourinho last month and the club are still monitoring his situation.

The 20-year-old can play right-back or centre-back and would offer some versatility with Antonio Valencia and Marcos Rojo likely to leave United in the next six months.
At Liverpool Jurgen Klopp has been dealt a defensive blow with Trent Alexander-Arnold being ruled out for a month after Nathaniel Clyne joined Bournemouth on loan for the season.
