Manchester United have chosen not to pursue a deal for Everton striker, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, after the Toffees put £80m price tag on him, the UK Metro reports.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a big admirer of the 23-year-old and felt his ability in the air, offers United something different from what Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial bring.

However, United were taken aback by the Toffees’ £80m valuation of the player and ended their interest in Calvert-Lewin.

The striker was signed for just £1.5m from Sheffield United four years ago, but only found his feet under Carlo Ancelotti.

Calvert-Lewin has repaid Ancelotti’s faith in him with 13 goals in 23 games, including a hat-trick in the 5-2 victory over West Brom last weekend.

Manchester United extended Odion Ighalo’s stay at the club in July, but the Nigerian’s loan move expires in January, meaning he remains a short-term solution to the club’s striker problems.
