Manchester United made a late attempt to bring Arsenal signing Mesut Ozil to Old Trafford, according to The Daily Mirror.
The Red Devils, who failed to land Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera on deadline day, reportedly made a late move for the German playmaker.
Ozil, who also turned down a more lucrative offer from Ligue 1 champions PSG, opted to sign for Arsenal ahead of the Premier League champions.
United had made desperate calls on Monday morning for the player, having already been offered the German international two weeks before.
Ozil ended up joining the north London club for £42.5 million - the second biggest deal in Premier League history - and could make his debut for the Gunners when they travel to Sunderland on September 14.
Whereas Manchester United completed a late move for Marouane Fellaini from Everton for £27.5m but David Moyes will be disappointed that he was only able to bring one major signing to Old Trafford this summer.
