Five stars Man Utd could sign instead of Jadon Sancho including Kingsley Coman and Douglas Costa as transfer alternative

MANCHESTER UNITED appear to have missed out on signing Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho this summer.

The two clubs failed to agree on a transfer fee before the August 10 deadline set by the Bundesliga giants.

Dortmund insisted on £108million in one lump sum, while Man Utd had hoped to pay just £60m-£70m up front, with the rest paid in instalments.

With Sancho well into the swing of his pre-season training, reports in Germany claim he will stay for at least one more season.

Now Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must look elsewhere to add some much-needed natural width to their attack.

SunSport takes a look at five Sancho alternatives, including Champions League hero Kingsley Coman…

COMAN scored the winner as Bayern Munich beat Paris Saint-Germain in Sunday’s Champions League final.

At just 24, the France winger still has his best years ahead of him and has bags of trophy-winning experience.

Coman has won 20 trophies in just 193 club career games – as well as winning a league title EVERY season and two in just one campaign.

The Bayern star could be just the man to take over the role reserved for Sancho at Old Trafford next season.

UNITED are claimed to have made a £27m bid for Douglas Costa – but Juventus are holding out for £36m.

The Brazilian winger, 29, is one of SEVEN stars set for the axe at the Serie A champions.

Man Utd have famously chased Costa for years, spanning several managers – and could rekindle their interest in 2020.

But, there are still lingering doubts over his fitness – after Costa nearly retired from football following a spate of injuries.

UNITED have been heavily-linked with the Aston Villa star – who’s capable of playing on either wing or as a No10.

His versatility could make him arguably a better signing than Sancho.

The latest reports claim United are set to offer Villa Sergio Romero plus cash for Grealish in order to try to get a deal over the line.

ONE of many Barcelona big-money flops, Dembele had been tipped with a summer exit.

But Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu recently named the France star on his seven-strong list of “untouchables”.

However, United are set to test Barcelona’s resolve with a big-money bid – albeit less than the £138m paid by the Spaniards to bring him in from Dortmund.

BOURNEMOUTH recently admitted their whole squad is up for sale following their relegation from the Premier League.

Brooks – who like Sancho came through Manchester City’s academy – is a “serious” target for Man Utd, according to reports.

And while United may need to fork out £40m to sign Brooks, that’s still a bargain compared to Sancho.
