French club Monaco have since tried to hijack the deal which has forced United into immediate action.

An agreement is now in the offing after conversations had hit a stumbling block for weeks.
James is eager to move Old Trafford it has been claimed.
His national team boss and Manchester United icon Ryan Giggs has backed him to be a success in the Premier League.
“Ideally, as an international manager, you don’t want to influence players’ decisions when it comes to clubs,” Giggs said.
“For me it’s about players playing.
“He was fantastic in the last six months for Swansea, putting in devastating performances and I think he can play at any level.
“He could play in the Premier League, but if he stays at Swansea for another year or two years I’d be equally as happy because he’s done so well there.
“That’s a decision for Dan to make and I’m sure he’ll make the right decision.”
