Manchester United are determined to mount a title challenge this season.
After a disappointing few years it seems that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has finally got the Red Devils back on track.
With some solid signings under his belt, United managed to secure a third place finish in the Premier League last term.
This time, however, they’ll be aiming much higher.
With Liverpool and Manchester City clear favourites to take the crown, United will need to strengthen if they’re to compete this term.
Plenty of names have already been linked with a move to Old Trafford, but it’s one name in particular that seems to be surfacing time and time again.
Of course we’re talking about Jadon Sancho.
The Borussia Dortmund man has long been a transfer target for the Premier League side who are determined to get a deal over the line.
Reports have suggested that United may have to pay around £108million to secure a deal, however no agreement has yet been reached.
But according to The Athletic, it seems that there’s a pretty major stumbling block in the way.
It’s claimed that club owner Joe Glazer has told Ed Woodward not to spend that sum on a deal for the 20-year-old.
Glazer believes that the total expenditure will be too high if United succumb to Dortmund’s lofty transfer demands.
The report maintains that Woodward is still confident of securing a deal for Sancho, however any agreement will depend on the German side lowering their valuation quite significantly.
GIVEMESPORT’S Phil Spencer says…
This transfer saga looks like it’s going to rumble on and on…and on.
In truth I’ll just be relieved if it gets done.
Manchester United appear to be determined to sign Jadon Sancho, but as it stands they and Borussia Dortmund are too far apart in their valuations.
Dortmund have said that they won’t sell, but we all know that they will for the right place.
Thankfully for United, there’s plenty of time left in this transfer window to get a deal done.
With the new season only a couple of weeks away, it seems highly unlikely that any move will be agreed before the big kick-off.
But that’s not to say that it won’t happen at some point.
