Manchester United expects to obtain development in efforts to sign Jadon Sancho links on finding an agreement on salaries and agent fees.
United continued to work on the Sancho contract but the fees charged by agents and intermediaries, plus Sancho’s salary demands, are a stumbling block while the Dortmund midfielder remains the club’s top summer goal.
Solskjaer and Executive Vice-Chairman Ed Woodward are ready to step away from a 20-year-old contract with England in the run-up to games against Iceland and Denmark, rather than paying off the odds, sources told ESPN.
United manager’s goal is to sign the forward rather than focus exclusively on Sancho, Solskjaer made it known.
Kingsley Coman, Douglas Costa, and Ousmane Dembele were discussed as potential alternatives.
United left the No. 7 shirt available in the expectation that Sancho could still arrive before the transfer deadline on October 5.
