Manchester United to relaunch attempt to sign Jadon Sancho in January
According to the MEN, Manchester United could revisit their interest in England international winger Jadon Sancho in the January transfer window. However, Borussia Dortmund are unlikely to change their stance on the matter.
At this point, it is no secret that Manchester United spent the entire summer transfer window in pursuit of the 20-year-old Sancho from Dortmund. (h/t MEN)
Manchester United wanted to negotiate a lower transfer fee for the former Manchester City academy man. However, Dortmund held firm on their stance, which meant the club’s effort to sign him proved futile. (h/t MEN)
But, it is now claimed that the club could revisit their interest in the England international during the January transfer window, even though it will be hard to coax him away from Dortmund midway through the campaign. (h/t MEN)
Should that fail, it is all but certain that the club will make another concerted effort to land the winger next summer. However, it is likely that the Red Devils will face more competition for his signing from England. (h/t MEN)
