Manchester United are willing to wait for Jadon Sancho until Borussia Dortmund lower his transfer fee.
United have been chasing Sancho for several years now, going back to Jose Mourinho’s turbulent time in charge of Old Trafford.
Although the Red Devils are the favourites to sign Sancho this summer, they are playing a risky game, amid rival interest from Real Madrid, Liverpool and Manchester City.
The England international, who is Dortmund’s top scorer so far, has scored 17 goals in the Bundesliga at the time of writing, but Lucien Favre’s side missed out on the coveted title despite his heroics.
According to The Daily Mail, the Yellow and Blacks have still not received any bids for the winger.
According to ESPN, the 20-year-old has informed Dortmund he wants to return to England.
United will try to put pressure on the Bundesliga challengers to reduce their asking price.
Ed Woodward has admitted fans should not expect the board to splash the cash in the transfer window, given the economic uncertainty surrounding the pandemic.
Clubs around the world are facing financial repercussions from the COVID-19 crisis and the Red Devils are refusing to meet Dortmund’s colossal valuation.
However, this may backfire in the board’s face, as the club could miss out on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s top target.
Real are closely monitoring the situation and Pep Guardiola could try to lure him back to the Etihad.
Solskjaer may miss out on Sancho altogether if they wait too long, as was the case with his teammate Erling Braut Haaland.
History is in danger of repeating itself and the executive vice-chairman will be well aware he cannot afford to make any more mistakes.
United fans, do you think the board will sign Jadon Sancho in the summer? Let us know down below!
