Man Utd to make one-off structured offer for Borussia Dortmund ace Sancho

Jadon Sancho and Lucas Torreira could be on the move

Dortmund are widely reported to have asked for £108m for the England worldwide at the start of the summer, a fee United are believed to have said is unrealistic given the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Manchester United manager has continued to ask the club's board of directors and recruitment team about the state of their pursuit of Sancho. Both clubs have since been involved in negotiations with the transfer saga dragged long and through the summer.

If he moves to Old Trafford, he is likely to start in place of Daniel James and it would be a massive upgrade for Solskjaer's side. The German club have been insistent in recent times that Sancho will remain at the club this season.

The summer transfer window closes on October 5 and United bosses remain confident of signing Sancho.

"From Manchester United's point of view, you want to wait and wait right until the end of the window before you make your move".

However, they would face competition for the Watford star with Manchester United also interested if they are unable to land Sancho.

United executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, will inform Dortmund there will be no negotiating over the fee or structure of the deal. The heavy transfer fee demand has been the main stumbling block for United in completing the transfer with the Red Devils refusing to pay such a high fee under the current circumstances when COVID-19 has impacted the football finances.

According to the Daily Record, Manchester United have enquired about the forward, but would only be willing to do a loan deal.
