The Sun says United have renewed their interest in Norwich defender Max Aarons - but may have to wait until the summer.
The highly-rated England under-21 international is wanted by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and would jump at the chance of a move.
Yet the Championship leaders are in no need to sell financially having banked over £40million in the summer after selling Ben Godfrey to Everton and Jamal Lewis to Newcastle.
Aarons, 20, was frustrated with the Canaries after they blocked a summer move to Barcelona.
But the LaLiga giants were only offering a loan switch with a view to a permanent move.
It was a deal which did not interest Norwich for that reason.
Spurs also had an offer worth up to £30m turned down 18 months ago but there's a bellief Aarons' current value is worth nearer £20m.
