Man United to BREAK the British transfer record to sign as 21-years old as ‘negotiation continued’

Published

Manchester United have to break the British transfer record if they want to land Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund this summer with the German club holding out for a record price and the two clubs still some distance apart.

Despite the Covid pandemic impacting on European football finances, the German club have not significantly reduced their asking price of £108million from a year ago and any offer from United would need to be in excess of the £89million paid for Paul Pogba in 2016 which is still the Premier League’s most expensive deal.

United’s board are fully committed to backing manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the transfer market this summer with Sancho the Norwegian’s number one target. 

Solskjaer feels United need a world-class operator on the right wing to score goals and create opportunities for Edinson Cavani, Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

Sancho, part of Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the Euros, ended the Bundesliga season in tremendous form, helping Dortmund qualify for the Champions League and win the German Cup, scoring 10 goals in 15 games.

Manchester United remain in ‘continue negotiation’ with the 21-years old.

 

Manchester United remain in “continued negotiations” with Borussia Dortmund about signing Jadon Sancho this summer, according to reports.

Sky Sports is reporting that the Red Devils remain keen on a deal to land the 21-year-old England international this summer after having been heavily linked with the attacker last year.

The same story claims that the talks between the two clubs are focused on the total fee Dortmund are seeking, plus Manchester United’s proposed structure of payments.

It is claimed that Dortmund are prepared to sell Sancho for “significantly less” than the £108m they were seeking for the attacker last summer.

According to the same story, although Dortmund are open to a deal, they will only sell if their conditions are met.

Sancho was in good form for Dortmund last season, scoring 16 goals and making 14 assists in all competitions for the German side.

Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they look to build a squad capable of winning the Premier League next season.

The Red Devils finished in second place in the table last term under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix.

Felix has endured a difficult start to the season for Atletico and is yet to score in five starts in the league.

Last season wasn’t much better for Felix, only managing 24 league starts.
With competition up top including French international Antoine Griezmann, Felix is often used as a rotation option under Diego Simeone.

Now, according to Fichajes, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal all interested in signing the striker.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea will need to find a long-term replacement for their current first-choice strikers.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both reaching the latter stage of their careers for their respective clubs, so bringing a player with a similar age profile to Felix would be a smart move.

A move to Arsenal may not benefit Felix’s development as much, with Gabriel Jesus performing exceptionally well for the North London club and still only 25 years old.

Manchester United and fellow Premier League clubs are counting down the days until they can strike-up further business in the transfer market. Erik ten Hag welcomed six players to Old Trafford during his first window and they have all made their mark in the starting XI.

Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez have all quickly become mainstays, while Antony broke a record set by Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he scored on Sunday night. That 2-1 victory over Everton also saw former Real Madrid player Casemiro handed his first Premier League start for the club.

Martin Dubravka was the other recruit, signing on a season-long loan from Newcastle.

With one eye on January and future windows, meanwhile, United are understood to still have Frenkie de Jong on their radar, while elite clubs from across Europe will be queuing up for Jude Bellingham should he decided to leave Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the near transfer window.
