The 23-year-old - who is currently away on Africa Cup of Nations duty with the Mali squad - has supposedly been identified as a leading target by interim coach Ralf Rangnick.
Speculation surrounding a possible move to Old Trafford in January has cooled in recent weeks, though, with Man United also rumoured to be looking at Jude Bellingham, Declan Rice and Denis Zakaria as midfield additions.
A winter transfer for Haidara is now seemingly dead in the water, as the Daily Mail claims that the former Red Bull Salzburg man wants to see out the season with Leipzig.
The report adds that Haidara - also linked with Newcastle United - will consider his next career move in the summer, when his £33m release clause will activate.
Haidara has registered three goals in 18 appearances for RB Leipzig across all competitions this season and is contracted to the Bundesliga club until 2025. body check tags ::
