The 24-year-old attacker has been linked with a host of top European sides all summer, including United, Man City Liverpool and most recently Serie A side Napoli.
The Ivorian netted 23 goals in 41 appearances last season and admitted earlier this year that he was open to a move away from the Ligue 1 club.
However, speculation continued to grow as Football Insider report that they have agreed personal terms with the player, but now one of Pepe’s representatives – Samir Khiat – has firmly denied that.
Instead, they have landed in Naples to discuss personal terms with Napoli, the club who looked favourites to sign him up until recently.
The Serie A giants are said to be ready to offer a player-plus-cash deal to sign him, which could see Adam Ounas go the other way, though the cash sum is not disclosed.
