United fail in Coentrao pursuit

For a while it seemed Manchester United may have clinched the deal just in time, but Fabio Coentrao won't be heading to Old Trafford

Manchester United have missed out on signing Real Madrid defender Fabio Coentrao, with the club reportedly running out of time to secure the deal.

United's chase of Coentrao took a surprise turn late on Monday night, with the Spanish press claiming David Moyes was close to making a much-needed addition to his squad.

But the Press Association reports the two clubs were unable to come to an agreement before the deadline, adding to United's frustrations after failing to lure Leighton Baines from Everton.

The 11th-hour signing of Marouane Fellaini salvaged something from the transfer window for Moyes, but United were also luckless in their pursuit of Athletic Bilbao's Ander Herrera.

Coentrao was tipped to provide back up for France international Patrice Evra, who could have been utilised in a more advanced role if the Spaniard had signed.

Information from the Press Association was used in this report.
