Man United transfer news: Club won't spend £100m on Jadon Sancho due to coronavirus fears

Man United might not sign Sancho after all

Manchester United have made one major signing so far this summer. 

Donny van de Beek has arrived from Ajax in a deal worth £35m. 

The midfielder had his first outing for the club in a friendly against Aston Villa this weekend and he seriously impressed boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

"Donny was the biggest plus outfield. He's such a finder of space and creates time for himself with his timing and movement. I was very happy with his performance," the manager said. 

Van de Beek will certainly add something special for Man United, but they need at least one more top signing to challenge for the Premier League title next season. 

Many people believe that's a certain Jadon Sancho.

He has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer, but a deal hasn't been done as the two clubs can't agree on a transfer fee. 

Sancho has been linked with Man Utd

Borussia Dortmund want £100m for their star, but Man United are refusing to pay that much... apparently, for one reason. 

According to The Sun, the club is reluctant to shell out a huge amount of money because they are 's***ting themselves' about COVID-19.

The uncertainty around fans being able to return to stadiums and even the possibility of a second sporting shutdown has led to Ed Woodward pressing pause on big signings. 

Man Utd won't go for Sancho right now

A source told the paper: "COVID is back and everyone is s***ting themselves.

"Most clubs have spent all their money and those that haven’t are concerned about doing business in the current situation.

"What if a major sponsor comes to you and says it can’t pay? What are you going to do? Sue them?" 

Man United don't want to spend a lot of money this summer

It's not surprising at all that Premier League clubs are worried about spending large amounts of money at this uncertain time. 

Right now, it sounds like the only thing standing between Sancho and a move to Man United is a global pandemic.
