But the German does not want to move and he has informed both parties of his desire to stay at Frankfurt.

United were reportedly willing to offer Trapp £180,000 a week but it has not been enough to convince the shot-stopper to make the switch.

It is believed Frankfurt knocked back an offer from United before Trapp announced his decision to stay.

He said in a statement on Instagram: “Dear fans, There have been a lot of reports of interest in Manchester United in the past few days.

“It is true that there is a written offer. Manchester United is a world club and the fact that I can deal with and think about such an offer, I hope everyone understands.

“Yesterday, however, I informed the person in charge of both clubs that I had chosen Eintracht.

“I have experienced unforgettable things here with Frankfurt and we made history together. The start to the season has been bumpy, but I have absolute faith in us 💪🦅 Your Kevin.”

“Yesterday, I informed those responsible at both clubs that I had decided stay at Eintracht Frankfurt.”


Trapp follows Frenkie de Jong, Jurrien Timber and Darwin Nunez as players to have rejected United this summer.

The club could now focus their attention on Newcastle keeper Martin Dubravka having entered negotiations with Toon to sign the Slovakia international.

Newcastle would likely want a hefty fee for their No2 as selling him in the coming days would leave them with little time to find a replacement.

Toon boss Eddie Howe was left stunned by United’s reported interest in Dubravka and claimed he “didn’t know” anything of it.

But he’s refused to rule out the possibility of the Slovak leaving St James’ Park before the transfer window closes next month.
