Man United unwilling to meet Dortmund demands for Sancho

Manchester United are currently unwilling to meet Borussia Dortmund’s valuation of Jadon Sancho, according to Sky Sports journalist Dharmesh Sheth.

United have long been linked with a move for the 20-year-old winger and he reportedly isn’t opposed to returning to England having left Manchester City in 2017, especially with United securing Champions League football for next season. Sheth says that United are the only club to have officially contacted Dortmund regarding Sancho, and they feel that it being a ‘one-horse race’ means that they shouldn’t pay too much for the transfer. Real Madrid and Liverpool are also admirers of the player, but neither of the last two Champions League winners have taken any concrete steps towards signing him. Further more, Sancho’s contract expires in 2022, and United’s stance is that it also works in their favour.

Dortmund, on the other hand, are completely relaxed about the situation and appear in no rush to sell. If they can’t get what they feel would be a suitable fee, they are quite prepared to keep the player for another season and sell him then, even for less money.

United have already lined up potential alternatives, most notably Kingsley Coman of Bayern Munich, Sheth confirms.
