Manchester United not giving up on Jadon Sancho pursuit
According to reputed journalist Sam Pilger (h/t Express), Manchester United have agreed on personal terms with Jadon Sancho, while also reaching an agreement over agent fees, as they continue the pursuit of the Englishman.
It is no secret that United have been chasing the signing of Sancho from Borussia Dortmund all summer. However, the Red Devils haven’t been able to make a breakthrough, with the Germans holding out for a transfer fee of £108m. (h/t Express)
With less than two days left for the transfer window to slam shut, the Red Devils are facing a race against time to convince Dortmund to part ways with the 20-year-old England international.
However, there seems to be a positive update in the pursuit of Sancho, with the club now reaching an agreement over personal terms as well as agent fees, meaning two key aspects of the deal are done and out of the way.
As far as Dortmund are concerned, they have maintained their stance that the Englishman will not be sold. However, Manchester United are not yet giving up, despite having a bid of £90m rejected earlier this week. (h/t Express)
Even if Manchester United meet Dortmund’s £108m asking price, there is a problem of them being able to find a replacement for Sancho this late in the window. So there is a strong chance that they could still reject the bid. (h/t Express)
However, they are being linked with Ismaila Sarr. The Senegalese winger is a Jadon Sancho alternative for Manchester United. And Dortmund’s interest in him could hint at the fact that they might sanction a transfer. (h/t Express)
