Concise News understands that the youngster did not sign the new deal with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side on Thursday.

Odubeko is being courted by Bayern Munich, Newcastle United, Feyenoord, Genoa and Burnley.

Daily Mail UK said Odubeko wants to leave the Red Devils in this summer’s transfer window to get more regular playing time.

The striker joined United from Premier League champions Manchester City in 2016 and bagged 35 goals for the youth team last term.

Also, he netted a goal on his debut in United’s U18 Premier League tie against Blackburn Rovers in February, 2019.

In a related development, Inter Milan have launched an official bid for Romelu Lukaku after talks with Manchester United on Thursday.

Inter Milan sporting director Piero Ausilio met with United club officials and it is understood United want a cash-only £75m fee from the Serie A club if they are to sell the Belgium striker.

Ausilio said: “It was an official approach between two important clubs. We’ll see what happens. All the players we’re following are targets we’ve agreed with Antonio Conte. We want to satisfy his request within certain financial parameters.”

Inter’s only proposal has been a smaller fee for a two-year loan with an obligation to buy for a much larger sum spread over the next couple of years, however, the total of that deal comes in short of United’s valuation.

Sky Sports News understands Lukaku wants to move after feeling devalued after being made to feel like United’s second-choice striker in the second half of last season.

The 26-year-old did not take part in training on Thursday afternoon and underwent some rehab work but he will be back in the squad for Saturday’s friendly against Perth Glory.
