Manchester United are to be rebuffed in their efforts to sign Yann M'Vila, according to reports.

The French international was thought to be high on the Old Trafford radar this summer as Sir Alex Ferguson looks to strengthen his champions further, but Rennes are not willing to sell the player.

TalkSPORT claims the Ligue 1 side will withstand any offer from Manchester United, or other interested parties which include Liverpool and Arsenal.

With eight international caps to his name already, M'Vila has emerged as one of the next generation of French stars and has impressed during Les Rouges et Noirs' impressive campaign.


The offer of Champions League football from Manchester United could be a key part in potential negotiations for the Red Devils, although Rennes are confident they will be able to withstand offers.

A contract at the Route de Lorient until 2014 suggests they are in a strong position, although Manchester United often get their way and this transfer saga may have plenty more twists to take before the summer is over.
