The negotiations between Manchester United and Dortmund go on cautiously.
is negotiating over the England international
, and it seems like the negotiations are going well, but both sides are cautious about the terms of the deal.
Dortmund asked £108m for the England international last summer, but it doesn’t seem like the current price considering the effects of the Covid-19 on the market and the fact that the player is about to start the final two years of his deal with the German side.
The club insists that they will listen to the offers, but a transfer won’t be completed unless all their demands are answered. They haven’t made their conditions public yet.
James Cooper writes:
"Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has talked about 'finetuning' this summer rather than wholesale changes with a suggestion there will be one major, marquee signing accompanied by a couple of other new faces.
"Finance was an issue last summer and a year of football amidst a pandemic has not made the economics any easier at Old Trafford either, so I don't expect a huge cash injection to suddenly make everything alright.
"After extending Edinson Cavani's stay in Manchester and with hopes high for Mason Greenwood's continuing development, it would be a surprise if one of either Harry Kane or Erling Haaland arrived at Old Trafford. It does not mean they have not been looked at, they have, but Manchester United have other areas they need to strengthen and their transfer cash can only stretch so far.
"Raising finance from player sales or freeing up big chunks of wages from departures would, again, allow a greater flexibility and Solskjaer and his recruitment team also remain admirers of Sancho.
"The key to what Manchester United want to do, against a backdrop where supporters are demanding big names despite the impact of COVID, is close the gap on Manchester City and prepare for a real tilt at the Champions League next season. It's the first transfer window for the club's new recruitment structure too and they can expect to be busy in the weeks ahead."
If Manchester United convinces the Bundesliga side, they will probably face no problem in making a deal with the player as he seems optimistic about the transfer after the Red Devils last summer negotiations with the player and the club, but there are other clubs interested in signing the player too.
