Manchester United are ready to delay their move for Jadon Sancho as they plan to force Borussia Dortmund into reducing the £100m asking price, MySportDab reports.
The Red Devils remain favourites to sign the England winger and bring him back to the Premier League after three years in the German Bundesliga.
Although there are interests from clubs like Real Madrid, Liverpool and Manchester City, Borussia Dortmund are yet to receive any bid for the 20-year-old.
According to The Daily Mail, United are ready to waist time this summer and put pressure on Borussia Dortmund to reduce their demands for a player who cost just £10m in 2017.
Manchester United chief Ed Woodward has already warned that football clubs need to be more realistic about transfer demands after the coronavirus pandemic.
The Red Devils have more money to spend than most Premier League clubs but are unwilling to pay over the odds for Sancho.
They are aware that Real Madrid also want Bayer Leverkusen youngster Kai Havertz, while Liverpool are unwilling to pay £100m for Sancho.
A return to Manchester City remains unlikely as Pep Guardiola is not concerned about a possible replacement for Leroy Sane.
Sancho could stay at Dortmund for another season which is not exactly a bad idea.
Borussia Coach Lucien Favre benched him for Saturday’s win against Red Bull Leipzig.
However, Dortmund’s sporting director Michael Zorc insisted Sancho was tired which is why he did not start the match.
United are aware that securing Champions League football could be a key factor in signing him, but not exactly necessary, according to some sources.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team are currently behind Chelsea by five points in the Premier League table.
