Manchester United have reignited a move for Dortmund superstar Jadon Sancho and hope to finalise financial terms with the winger’s representatives before placing a bid for the England winger.
Dortmund set United a deadline of August 8th to sign the former Manchester City midfielder and the Bunesliga giants are planning for next season with Sancho after the Red Devils failed to meet their £108m asking price.
However, United believe Dortmund’s deadline was a ploy to extract their full asking price for the winger and they feel a deal can still be done for Sancho.
The Red Devils are unwilling to pay Dortmund’s full asking price but that is not the only stumbling block for a deal to materialise, as Sancho’s representatives are also believed to be asking for high wages and a large signing-on fee.
While United are desperate to sign Sancho, the global pandemic means they cannot sign off deals in such a flippant manner like they used to.
Nevertheless, there is significant will on United’s side to get a deal done and the Daily Mail claim the club have resumed talks with the winger’s team to come to an agreement over his salary and their cut of a deal.
United completed the signing of Donny van de Beek on Wednesday for a fee of £40m to kick off their summer spending.
The club had previously targeted Jack Grealish but they were put off by Aston Villa’s £75m valuation of the midfielder and signing the Dutchman for a more acceptable fee could give the club more wriggle room in negotiations for Sancho.
Once United settle financial terms with Sancho’s entourage, the club will submit an opening offer to Dortmund.
Talks have already been held with the Bundesliga giants but an official bid was never submitted, with United and Dortmund instead opening a dialogue over a fee.
United hope to recoup some cash by selling off the likes of Chris Smalling, Jesse Lingard, Marcos Rojo and Andreas Pereira.
