Red Devils’ first offer falls short of what the German club are willing to accept
Manchester United have seen a £ 67million ($ 95million) opening bid rejected for Jadon Sancho.
The England international is one of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s main targets this summer after a deal failed to materialize for the 21-year-old last year due to a gap between the two sides on the evaluation.
Solskjaer is still keen to strengthen the right wing and talks are underway with Sancho camp and Borussia Dortmund over a potential transfer with the ex-Manchester City man eager to move.
What do we know?
Sancho remains a prime target for Man Utd despite their absence last summer and Dortmund are ready to let him go in the current transfer window if they get the fees they are looking for.
United are optimistic and believe a deal can be made for the England star, however, Goal can confirm that their initial offer falls short of what Dortmund are willing to accept.
It is believed that the initial offer was around £ 67million and the club should consider making another offer to land the 21-year-old England international.
It is understood that Dortmund have explained to United the terms of a sale and that Sancho is open to a transfer.
What did Solskjaer say about the transfers?
The United manager expects a couple of new faces in the current window as he looks to improve on his second place in the league last season and the final disappointment of the Europa League.
“We are second, but too far behind to threaten those who won. Then we have to strengthen ourselves, ”Solskjaer told Norwegian TV.
“Of course something is going to happen in the transition window. The world has become very different from 15-16 months ago, but we have to make some moves on the transfer window, but also with the team.
“It is never possible to sit down. You are constantly looking for reinforcements. Football is dynamic so unexpected things can happen like injury, illness, something familiar or someone wants to get moving.
“You have to take everything possible into consideration and thoughtfulness. I will never sit down thinking that ‘now the team is how I want them to be’, because you always see other players or d ‘other teams do what you want. “
What else do United want?
It is understood that a center-back and a center midfielder are also on the roster, while competition for the right-back is also sought with optional Kieran Trippier.
Raphael Varane and Pau Torres are the main contenders at center-back as Solskjaer seeks to find a more consistent partner for Harry Maguire.
