Manchester United ready to meet asking price for top target striker



Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Manchester United  have reportedly open talks to seal the deal for their long-term target, Jadon Sancho  and are ready to meet Dortmund’s asking price.

According to Athletic’s Lauriel Whitwell, the Red Devils are now very confident of getting the deal done, even before the upcoming Euros gets underway.

Whitwell said: “Negotiations have begun in earnest over a price for the 21-year-old and United have been given encouragement that Borussia Dortmund will accept a lower amount than last summer’s asking price.

“Discussions stalled 12 months ago when Dortmund demanded €120 million (£110 million) for the England winger, without room for maneuver. But multiple sources report a willingness to find a solution this time around.

“There is still work to be done on the fee, with the two clubs apart on valuation at this stage.

“It is believed United are prepared to commit £80 million – a total that was initially communicated in Germany as being amenable to Dortmund.

“But the Bundesliga side are said to be holding out for an additional £20 million in achievable add-ons. That is not an insignificant gap.”

The arrival of Sancho will fill the gap at the right-wing and strengthen united attacking options.

Solskjaer is also keen on signing a center back who will partner Harry Maguire and Real Madrid Raphel Varane has been identified as the best option for the Red Devils.
