English Premier League giants Manchester United are optimistic they can secure winger Jadon Sancho ‘s services from Borussia Dortmund.
Sky Sports claims that despite calming down speculation on Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish, the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has agreed to go all out for the England international.
The reports indicate that Dortmund are holding out for €120m for the 20-year-old but United are unwilling to go that high given the financial hit that they have taken during the pandemic.
The German club also wants in the region of €100m as an immediate payment and for the deal to be resolved by the time their squad returns for pre-season training on August 10, to give them time to find a replacement.
Already the club is being linked with Sancho replacements with the likes of Lille forward Jonathan Ikone who is valued at €50m being linked with the club. It is said that there has been no bid from United yet for Sancho but they are the only team to have made formal contact with Dortmund. Soccer Prediction betting tips
Sancho’s contract runs out in 2022 and Dortmund will be happy to keep him if they can’t find the right offer for the player.
Should Dortmund stand their ground, United will be looking for alternatives with Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman among the players being linked with the team.
