The manager was quizzed about his remarks to Ake during Wednesday's press conference.

He said: "I've got seven centre-backs, so I don't know where that comes from. We're fine."

United are reportedly looking to sign a new defender to pair up with Harry Maguire.

Bournemouth star Ake, Aston Villa ace Tyrone Mings and AC Milan's Alessio Romagnoli are believed to be on their radar.

United could land Ake on a cut-price deal if Eddie Howe's side are relegated from the Premier League.
