Manchester United have changed their mind over making a move for Juventus midfielder Emre Can, according to reports.

Can is one of two midfielders United were understood to be considering signing, alongside Newcastle’s Sean Longstaff.

Former Liverpool star Can has struggled for opportunities in Italy, starting two of 18 Serie A games and failing to be named in their Champions League squad.

Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici said this week that Can wouldn’t be for sale in the January transfer window and reports in Italy claim Man Utd have now pulled out of a deal for the Germany international.

Tuttosport (via Sport Witness) claims that United ‘have changed their decision’ on signing Can, while the player has also decided against a move.

Can doesn’t want to spoil his good relationship with Liverpool fans and both parties are now agreed that a transfer won’t happen.

Despite Paratici’s comments this week, the report adds that Can could still leave Juventus this month if they receive an offer of at least €30m with Paris Saint-Germain, Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich still interested.
