United more interested in Jude Bellingham than Jadon Sancho

Sun 09 May 2021 | 10:05

The Red Devils are keener on signing with Jude Bellingham than Jadon Sancho for the summer transfer window, based on the reports.

Jadon Sancho

was

Manchester United

’s main target before this season started, but they failed to make a deal before the transfer window closed.

Borussia Dortmund

stood firm on the winger’s value and he stayed put at Signal Iduna Park. However, the 21-year-old may be on the move this summer as Dortmund are facing financial problems caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Dortmund’s sporting director

Michael Zorc

revealed that there is a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ between the club and Sancho that permits him to leave when the season ends if he meets certain conditions.

We already had a gentlemen's agreement with Jadon last year that he can switch under certain conditions,"

Zorc told 

ARD

"He's been with us for a couple of years. However, this agreement does not exist with Erling [Haaland]."

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

aims to build the squad up for a

Premier League

title challenge next season and they are expected to pursue their interest in the England international.

According to

Bild

, however, United would rather sign with

Jude Bellingham

this time around.

At United at the moment, there is nothing at all on the Sancho interest. On the contrary, a move is not likely. The reason? Jude Bellingham,"

journalist Christian Falk told the German publication.

"Dortmund themselves have the replacement for Sancho and would therefore sell Sancho. The English are now simply focussing on Bellingham instead.”

The Red Devils will go against

Aston Villa

in the Premier League on Sunday and are about to endure a busy schedule, hosting

Leicester

and

Liverpool

on Tuesday and Thursday.

Should United grab all the points in those three games, they would sit four points behind leaders

Manchester City.
