Manchester United chief Ed Woodward will do anything to sign Jadon Sancho before the transfer window shuts having put ‘so much’ into a deal for the Borussia Dortmund star, reports claim.
United’s interest in the 20-year-old dates back to 2017, when he was at Manchester City.
Now, United have spent weeks trying to sign Sancho – only to find the Bundesliga club stubborn in negotiations so far.
And according to the Daily Mail, they’re currently readying a new bid for the England international, one they will hope will be accepted.
It’s claimed the club have put ‘so much’ into a deal for Sancho that they won’t consider signing alternatives until very late on in the window.
United are working on sorting Sancho’s personal terms, with the player’s wages and agent fees currently a problem.
But while they’ve interest in Kingsley Coman, Douglas Costa and Ousmane Dembele it seems the Red Devils are hellbent on signing Sancho and fully intend to approach the situation with vigour.
Dortmund have regularly insisted that Sancho won’t be leaving the Westfalenstadion before the transfer window slams shut on October 5.
Yet money talks and, with the club spending big on Erling Haaland and Jude Bellingham over the past year, they may have no choice but to cash in on their star performer.
