MANCHESTER UNITED are determined not to break the bank for Jadon Sancho but reportedly remain in the driving seat for the winger’s signature.
Bleacher Report claim that the prospect of the Red Devils splashing six-figure sums is unrealistic in the current climate with coronavirus dropping every player’s value by “at least 15 per cent.”
Borussia Dortmund had put a £100million-plus price tag on Sancho earlier this year with a warning that the valuation could rise even further if the 20-year-old impressed for England at the Euros.
Now, any premium has disappeared with the Euros postponed but United have to be cautious not to annoy the Germans with low-ball bids.
The Old Trafford club are said to be keen not to spend more than the £89m they splashed on Paul Pogba, with any deal for Sancho for less than £86m seen as a good result.
That figure reportedly could drop even lower depending on how the England international’s situation looks by the time the transfer window actually opens.
Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona are both interested in Sancho, with the Catalans offering Dortmund Ansu Fati in return.
United are still leading the race but Paul Ince has warned the former Manchester City starlet to consider if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the right man to turn him into a world star.
