Manchester United are no closer to concluding their long-running search for a director of football.
Rumours emerged over the weekend indicating the Red Devils were closing in on Lille's Luis Campos, famed for spotting the likes of Kylian Mbappe during his time at Monaco.
But fresh reports in France suggest United will be left frustrated in any bid to lure the Portuguese to Old Trafford.
UNITED TARGET NOT INTERESTED IN LEAVING LILLE
Claims that United have commenced negotiations with 55-year-old Campos are wide of the mark, reports Le 10 Sport.
There has apparently been no contact between the parties and, in any case, the former Real Madrid scout is said to have no plans to leave Lille.
United's 2-0 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday and the loss of Marcus Rashford has exacerbated the need for signings, an area in which Campos was expected to assist.
Campos previously had a long career as a head coach in his native Portugal, where he led Gil Vicente and Beira-Mar among others.
