Manchester United Could Lose out on Sancho Deal
Borussia Dortmund is increasingly confident of keeping their England winger Jadon Sancho, who has been Manchester United’s top summer transfer target. It is gathered that United has already met the 20-year-old’s personal terms, but there is no agreement over a fee yet with the club and this has been a major set-back for Mnachester United.
Dortmund’s deadline for any deal to be agreed on 10th of August and it has long passed and the German side do not want to sell the former Manchester City winger. Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants another wide player and the club are considering alternative targets. Real Madrid’s Wales forward Gareth Bale and Inter Milan’s Croatia international Ivan Perisic who are both 31-years of old could be the possible replacement if the deal fails.
Borussia Dortmund wants over £100m for Sancho, who they signed from Manchester City for £10m in 2017, but Manchester United do not feel a deal is possible at that valuation. The Premier League club are losing about £5m for every match played a match at Old Trafford played behind closed doors amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Manchester United are due to release their financial results to 30 June 2020 later in September. The transfer window closes on the 5th of October and their only significant signing so far is Netherlands midfielder Donny van de Beek who they bought from Ajax.
