Jadon Sancho to Man Utd transfer twist as Man City deal gives Ed Woodward problem

Manchester United are desperate to bring Jadon Sancho to the club in the summer transfer window and Ed Woodward may have a new plan after seeing Leroy Sane leaving Manchester City for Bayern Munich. The deal has given the United chief the chance to see value in the market during the coronavirus pandemic.

Sancho has been in blistering form this season, netting 20 goals and providing 20 assists in all competitions.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to add the England international to his ranks as he looks to close the gap on Liverpool and Manchester City.

And the Manchester Evening News claim Sane leaving City for Bayern Munich could give United an idea of how much it will cost to complete a deal.

Bayern are closing in on the transfer of Sane for £54m (€60m).

That’s after the German has been out for much of the season with injury and has made just one appearance in a year.

It means United will almost certainly have to pay £100m for Sancho who is four years younger and has starred for Dortmund in the current campaign.

The former City winger is keen to move to Old Trafford but the club qualifying for the Champions League could be key to any deal.

Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola has ruled out making a move for the 20-year-old who left the Etihad for the Bundesliga.

“No,” he said when asked if he would consider making a move to sign Sancho.

“So when he decided to move to Dortmund, it’s not that he’s going to come back.

“It would make no sense.

“If he wanted to leave then, I’d say he doesn’t want to come back.”
