Manchester United are keen on Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho but are reluctant to meet his £118 valuation being asked by the Bundesliga club.
Reports indicate that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made the player his top priority in the next transfer and while United are willing to part with more than £50 million, they are not ready to meet his valuation.
“We know United will have to pay more than £50 million, but also they will not meet his £118 million valuations under any circumstances,” the Bleacher Report indicated.
Further reports from Manchester Evening news indicate that the decision to hold onto Sancho by Dortmund doesn’t make sense for United this after their sporting director admitted that the player was likely to leave in the summer.
Dortmund’s sporting director Michael Zorc said they were ready to venture into the market to look for Sancho’s replacement with the player reported to have agreed on personal terms with United.
The reluctance of United to give out a huge sum for Sancho is further pinned on the improvement of Mason Greenwood who has had a good outing in recent games with United convinced that the young Englishman can perfectly slot on the right win; a position that Sancho plays.
Michael Zorc (Dortmund sporting director): "Jadon [Sancho] has a valid contract with us and we would be very happy if he is still with us next season — the timing would have to be right, and secondly, our price expectations would have to be met 100 per cent." #mulive [waz]— utdreport (@utdreport) July 11, 2020
