With United chasing Real Madrid left-back Fabio Coentrao, it is thought that Alaba had been identified by the Spanish giants as his ideal replacement in that position.
However, with the young Austrian now set to miss three months with a knee ligament injury, any chance of him moving this winter seems slim, meaning Coentrao could also stay put.
United are keen to sign another left-back to provide competition for under-performing summer signing Luke Shaw.
