The Sunday Mirror says Anuradha Desai, who runs Venkys alongside her two brothers, has stepped in personally to prevent the transfer from being rubberstamped but no official complaint has been lodged with the Premier League.
Blackburn may claim that United were in breach of transfer regulations when they were tipped off about the clause in the five-year deal that Jones signed with Rovers in February.
But United feel they have acted honourably - and will argue they offered more than the £16m tabled by Liverpool that triggered the clause.
No complaint has been lodged with the Premier League. Unless Rovers can prove that United and other clubs had received confidential information about Jones contract it's unlikely to stop the £16m transfer going ahead.
