From Spain – Man Utd made £125million move to sign star

Rice and Sancho for England

The transfer saga about the future of Jadon Sancho has dragged on for far too long and there is yet another interesting story in the media today.

Yesterday, we covered a report (via The Independent) claiming that the Red Devils are in pole position and would do anything to sign the Dortmund star in the summer transfer window.

Transfer: How Man United could line up with £70million playmaker

Today, AS have claimed that Man Utd made a move worth 140 million euros (around £125million) for the England international in February, however, even that enormous a bid was turned down by BvB.

Why did Man Utd make such a move right after the winter transfer window? Sounds confusing but may be, the Red Devils wanted to move as quickly as possible to beat the competition in the summer.

Nevertheless, the Spanish source have mentioned that Solskjaer wants to make Sancho the new Cristiano Ronaldo at Old Trafford and the Norwegian is looking to partner him with Marcus Rashford.

Since the departure of the Portuguese superstar in 2009, United have not been able to replace him. The No.7 shirt is iconic and is vacant at the moment. It was last worn by flop Sanchez, who is currently on loan with Inter Milan.

As far as the competition is concerned, AS claim that Real Madrid have entered the scene and the Los Blancos have got very good relations with Borussia Dortmund.

However, it is mentioned that this summer, the 13-time European Champions do not plan to make any big money signings and they may move to lure Sancho next year.

The global coronavirus outbreak has directly impacted the market prices in football but the Three Lions attacker might still cost a lot. As per a recent report covered by Mundo Deportivo, Sancho would cost over 100 million euros (£89million). For the latest updates, watch this space.
