'I think they are bluffing' - Sancho backed to make Man Utd switch despite Dortmund stance

Jadon Sancho will soon be a Manchester United player, with Borussia Dortmund simply playing hardball to get the best deal possible, according to Owen Hargreaves.

Goal can confirm the Bundesliga outfit want €120 million (£108m/$142m) for the England international, but the two clubs were said to be far apart on their negotiations last week despite claims an agreement had been reached.

Dortmund set a deadline of Monday to reach an agreement, otherwise there would be no deal. And with no agreement in sight, Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has declared that Sancho willbe staying in Germany next season.

Hargreaves, though, believes this is simply a bargaining tactic designed to extract a few more million from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

"Bluff. I'm calling bluff, I think he'll be a Man Utd player in a pretty short time,” the former Manchester United midfielder told BT Sport.

"They are just trying to get some more money out of it. It’s the nature of the beast.

“Obviously they know United are really interested and they are pretty heavy into negotiations. I think they are bluffing and they know he is going to leave at that price.”

The duo feel United’s failure to land Erling Haaland, who joined Dortmund from Red Bull Salzburg in January, will make them evenmore determined to land a prime transfer target this time.

“By the looks of it, Dortmund are playing some hard ball,” Van Persietold BT Sport. “But that’s how the game is played.

“Dortmund wants more money so It depends on Man United, if they want to go the extra mile. If they really rate him and think he can be that big of a hit, they will.

“They missed out on Erling Haaland and I think it was a missed chance. Because Everyone’s seen over the last six to eight months what he can do. He’s a brilliant player.

“They don’t want to miss out on the next big thing but how far are they willing to go? That’s the trick question here. It’s business.”

Scholes added: “They’re just after a little bit more money out of it.They are talking about £108m, which is a lot of money. But He looks a brilliant player who will improve any team in world football with his assists and his goals.

“The one thing I would say about United is that they were desperate for Haaland and they didn’t quite go the extra mile to pay the money they wanted for him.
