Man Utd Sets Sight On Jadon Sancho, Cools Interest In Jack Grealish

Borussia Dortmund’s forward Jadon Sancho has reportedly emerged as English Premier League’s giant Manchester United first choice as their interest in Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish wanes.

The Red Devils believes Grealish’s asking price is too high after Aston Villa’s survival, with Sancho deemed a better fit for United’s starting XI

Manchester United are working hard with Borussia Dortmund to find a solution for the transfer of Jadon Sancho.

Discussions for Sancho centre around the transfer fee and structure of payments.

It is believed Dortmund want a deal sorted by August 10 when the club return for pre-season training in order to give them time to find a replacement.

Dortmund are holding out for €120m (£109m) for the 20-year-old England international winger but United are unwilling to go that high given the financial hit that they, and many others, have taken during the pandemic.

There has been no bid from United as yet, but they are the only club to have made official contact with Dortmund.

Sancho’s contract runs out in 2022 and Dortmund are relaxed about his situation.

If they do not get what they feel he is worth, they will keep him and happily wait until next summer to sell – albeit for a lower price.
