Jesse Lingard’s hopes of chasing Anthony Martial through Manchester United’s exit door hit a new snag.
The England ace was confident a loan move to Newcastle was on the cards after talks with interim boss Ralph Rangnick on Tuesday.
However, it later emerged that there was still a big difference between the two clubs regarding the fee involved in the temporary deal.
It is believed United want a loan fee as well as a bonus if Eddie Howe’s strugglers remain in the Premier League.
And Newcastle were now threatening to walk away from the table with Lyon midfielder Bruno Guimaraes.
Lingard – currently enjoying a break in Dubai – had made up his mind to move to St James’s Park for the rest of the season.
With his Old Trafford contract expiring in the summer, the 29-year-old wants to keep his options open for his long-term future.
But the United hierarchy are now eager to recover some money on him as they will lose him for nothing over the summer.

He now has to hope the two clubs can agree a deal before Monday’s transfer deadline.
Meanwhile, Marshall, who signed a £57.6 million deal for United in 2015, hopes to stay at Sevilla on a permanent basis.
The loan agreement lasts only till June and does not include any option to sign it after that.
But he is hoping for Julen Lopetegui’s men to score goals for the title and give himself every chance he has to stay.
United insisted the Spanish club must pay their £200,000-a-week salary for the remainder of the season.
The Red Devils’ next permanent manager will also have the final say on Marshall’s long-term future as his contract runs through 2024.
Interim Rangnik will now have to decide what to do with keeper Dean Henderson and Donny van de Beek, with Crystal Palace planning to take a loan for the midfielder before the window closes on Monday.
