Manchester United have now made a final decision about signing Harry Kane or Jadon Sancho this summer, MySportDab reports.
United are not ready to pay £120m for Harry Kane this summer, and they prefer to sign England winger Jadon Sancho instead of the Tottenham striker.
The Red Devils are ready to wait for 12 months to try and sign Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s most wanted player Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund in 2022
After the Europa League Final defeat, Coach Solskjaer has formulated a plan with new director of football John Murtough.
Edinson Cavani’s contract extension means that signing a centre-forward is not as important to signing Sancho as a right-sided attacker.
Sancho has impressed ever since he joined Borussia Dortmund in the German Bundesliga.
The 21 year old helping Dortmund win the German Cup and qualify for the Champions League by scoring 10 goals in his last 15 matches before the end of the season.
The former Manchester City play could command a fee close to £70 million and United can only make one mega-signing this summer due to the current financial situation.
Solskaer has convince the United board that Sancho, Cavani, Mason Greenwood, and Marcus Rashford would help United challenge for major trophies.
Although, Kane has made it clear that he wants to leave Tottenham to win trophies, he still has three years left on his current contract.
United are not ready to enter a bidding war for Kane, who is more likely to join Manchester City.
Solskjaer can add three other new players besides Sancho to the squad this summer.
Haaland, Europe’s best young striker is top of United’s transfer list but only next summer as Dortmund won’t sell now.
Haaland started his career under Solskjaer at Molde, and by the end of next season, his release clauses will be £65m.
Despite competition from Real Madrid, Solskaer’s relationship with the family may work to bring Haaland to Old Trafford.
United’s defeat against Villarreal was not good for Solskjaer, who hoped it would be his first trophy as United manager.
But United still have faith in Ole and won’t sack him any time soon.
