Erik ten Hag wanted to sign a new striker following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo but after spending £225m over the summer, they ran out of potential in January.
It means The Red Devils are evaluating deals in the form of loans instead of buying someone outright in the near future.
Previously, Man Utd wanted to sign PSV Eindhoven winger Cody Gakpo in the summer because he was an admirer of Ten Hag but the 23-year-old has now joined Liverpool with a contract that could cost up to 44 million pounds.
At this time, according to Manchester Evening News, Man Utd may consider recruiting striker Joao Felix on loan. The Portuguese has been revealed to be unhappy with life at Atletico and wants to find a new challenge. The conflict between him and coach Diego Simeone has so far been assessed by the press as irreparable.
According to previous information, the representative of La Liga is ready to sit at the negotiating table if Man Utd pay £ 8 million for the loan fee, along with the entire salary for Felix.
