Man Utd target Jadon Sancho ‘told Solskjaer he wants to play for club’ as Ed Woodward targets transfer

MANCHESTER UNITED target Jadon Sancho has reportedly told Ole Gunnar Solskjaer he wants to play for the club.

Norwegian outlet Dagbladet has claimed that the Red Devils should feel confident of a deal for the England star despite Borussia Dortmund’s stance that he won’t be sold.

The report adds that Solskjaer’s confidence has come from several conversations with Sancho, in which the winger expressed his desire to play at Old Trafford.

SunSport told you on September 2 that the 20-year-old has already reached an agreement with United over wages.

And the Premier League giants reportedly made a breakthrough over agent fees in their hunt for Sancho this week.

Yet Solskaer’s side remain locked in talks with Dortmund over a transfer fee after having an initial bid of £70million – rising to £110m in bonuses – rejected.

United, who have only brought in £39m midfielder Donny van de Beek from Ajax this summer so far, have not given up on Sancho.

But manager Solskjaer admitted United do not have “new millions” to complete a deal.

The Norwegian told Radio Five Live: “I am very happy working with these players and the squad.

“We always trying to improve and to see if there’s any way possible that we can improve this squad and bring players in that will have the right level of quality and the right personality and have all the right criteria.

“We all know this summer and this year has been a very strange one and it’s important that everyone understands that this has an effect on football and not everyone can spend millions and millions, and new millions.”

United meanwhile also remain keen on signing a new centre-back, with RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano in Solskjaer’s sights.

He would also like a left-back, with Real Madrid’s Sergio Reguilon eyed after an impressive loan at Sevilla.
