Man Utd ready to ‘strike Sancho deal come January’ and copy Chelsea structure

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United are ready to go back in for Jadon Sancho come the New Year.

And this time, the Red Devils are intent on striking an agreement with Borussia Dortmund before it’s too late.

Solskjaer prioritised a move for the England international in the summer as he was desperate for a right winger.

However, Ed Woodward failed to agree terms with Dortmund, who were holding out for £108m.

In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and the financial impact it has had on the club, United weren’t willing to fork out.

It has had a damaging effect on their form with United down in 14th place in the Premier League table.

United still want Sancho and the delayed Euro 2020 tournament next summer could well see his price tag rise further.

As a result, and with other clubs likely to circle too, United are planning to get ahead of the game.

While a transfer in January is seen as impossible, a deal with a view to him switching Dortmund for Manchester next summer could be struck.

According to 90min , United officials are already preparing a fresh approach to Sancho’s representatives about a deal in January.

And it could see the Red Devils follow a very similar method of signing a Dortmund player to what Chelsea took in 2019.

Christian Pulisic was sold to Chelsea by the Bundesliga side in January last year, but he was loaned back to Dortmund until the end of the season.

While Sancho’s feelings are unclear for now after his summer saga, it is suggested he may prefer the idea of getting a deal done early so he can have his future sorted in order to not be distracted heading into Euro 2020.
