Man Utd to step up Sancho pursuit as Red Devils eye £80m deal for Dortmund star
Woodward has warned it will not be "business as usual"in the transfer window this summer due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, and sources have dismissed claims that United will spendmore than £100m ($129m) on any player.
It is understood, therefore, that United are looking to negotiate an initialdeal for Sancho worth around £80m ($103m),with add-ons then included to potentially increase the final fee.
Dortmund are willing to part with Sancho and have already started planning for life without the 20-year-old, but there will have to be compromise from both sides if a deal is to be agreed.
Jesse Lingard, whose future is in doubt at Old Trafford, believes the Dortmund star would be a good addition to Solskjaer’s side as they push to compete for the Premier League next season.
“Jadon is a brilliant player. It is obviously up to him,' Lingard toldGoalon Thursday. “I've seen him with England, I've seen his qualities and I feel like he'd be a great addition to any team.”
As well as a right-sided attacker, Solskjaer also has a midfielder and a centre-back on his transfer wish list this summer,and there isan understanding at the club that they know they need to strengthen if they are going to build on this season’s third-place finish.
“There’s definitely not going to be any complacency and thinking, ‘We’ve cracked it’ because we’ve got so much to do. It’s an enjoyable journey,” Solskjaer said.
"We can see improvements but, yes, we need to make one or two - or more - very good decisions. It’s going to be an important summer, definitely.”
