    MANCHESTER UNITED have told Southampton they will not be used as the bait to prompt a £30million auction for wantaway star Mario Lemina.

    The Saints reportedly linked United with a move for the midfielder – who refused to go on the club's pre-season tour this week – to spark multi-bids.

    Arsenal are also chasing the 25-year-old.

    Lemina has stayed at home rather than attend Southampton's training camp in Austria.

    The Gabon international is desperate to move to Old Trafford.

    He said: “I still have another three years of contract. But it is true that I do not rule out the possibility of seeing something else.

    “The last four months have not been easy for me, with my injury. The coach put his team together. I want to start afresh. So why not leave?

    “We have very good discussions with the club. We are in agreement. If I don’t feel good in this project, I can leave.

    “They are giving me the opportunity to be able to go elsewhere.

    “We are working on it with my agents, we are not putting ourselves under any pressure.

    “We are waiting truly for the best project, the best offer. We look at it day by day.

    “For the moment, I am at Southampton and I am working the best I can to be the best possible form.”

    United have targeted the player to help bridge the gap over a possible £180m transfer of Paul Pogba.

    The club have also been linked with Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes and have had talks with Newcastle over Sean Longstaff.

    United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is fed up with agents talking up moves either in or out of Old Trafford.

    He does not want his hand to be forced on Lemina, with the prospect of the Red Devils paying much more than they need to.

    Lemina made 23 appearances for Saints last term in an injury-hit campaign.
