EPL: Man United shift focus to Real Madrid for Sancho’s alternative


A deal for England international winger Jadon Sancho is becoming more difficult by the day as an agreement is yet to be reached with Borussia Dortmund, which is the reason why Man United are now considering other options.

Borussia Dortmund are requesting a £100 million fee for the former Man City academy player but the Red Devils cannot pay. It is now claimed that the German Bundesliga club are no longer interested in releasing him this summer window.

This development is forcing Man United to consider other options as they are now considering a move for Vinicius Junior from Spanish La Liga outfit, Real Madrid.

Spanish publication, Defensa Central reports that Man United are aware of the fact that Vinicius Junior is unhappy at the Bernabeu because of the lack of regular role and that could be a factor to consider.

The report also claimed that the Red Devils have already asked about the availability of the 20-year-old from the La Liga champions and are willing to make an offer in the coming days.

Vinicius Junior is known to be on the radar of Arsenal, Chelsea and Paris Saint Germain with Man United now joining the list.

The Brazilian international had about 30 appearances for the Los Blancos last season but the majority of them have been from the bench.
