Manchester United hierarchy are expected to spend big this summer with Jadon Sancho at the top of their shortlist.
Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has reportedly decided that United will not pay more than £70million for any individual player this summer.
The COVID-19 crisis is likely to limit spending from other clubs but the Red Devils are prepared to go the extra mile to gain an advantage on their fellow rivals.
Woodward is believed to have taken out a loan of £140million to spend on transfers this summer with the Old Trafford outfit looking to bolster their ranks once the Premier League season is completed.
However, the Evening Standard claim the Red Devils have decided that they will not be paying upwards of £70m for any individual in the coming months.
That does of course include Sancho, who is undoubtably the club's leading target ahead of the opening of the window on July 27.
One thing that does bode well for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side is that Sancho wants to join them and personal terms will not prove to be a problem if they can strike an agreement over the fee.
Should United bring in enough money, there is every chance their supposed stance on signing players over £70m may change.
