The proposed transfer of Jadon Sancho to Manchester United is looking less likely every day. Goal reports that the Red Devils and Borussia Dortmund are still miles apart in the negotiations of the transfer fee. Meanwhile, Sancho and United have not been able to agree personal terms despite reports the forward had agreed to a five-year deal.
The report from Goal claims that negotiations between Dortmund and United are still in the early stages and that it looks next to impossible for the clubs to reach an agreement before Dortmund’s own deadline of August 10. The Germans are holding on to their €120m askin price and aren’t prepared to drop their asking price. United are not willing to come anywhere near that fee at the moment.
So for now a transfer for Sancho seems very unlikely and that means Manchester will be looking at other targets. Ferran Torres was high on their wanted list, but the Spaniard has completed a transfer to Manchester City on Tuesday. Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman has been put forward as another target, but it seems unlikely that the Germans want to sell the French winger this summer.
