Forget Sancho, Man United to pay £154m for La Liga star


Man United have decided to dump their chase of England international winger Jadon Sancho after failing to agree on a deal with Borussia Dortmund over a fee but they now have a new alternative to invest in.

Jadon Sancho is set to remain with Borussia Dortmund for another season as the club confirmed he will not be leaving which leaves the Red Devils disappointed.

The Red Devils are now in for Barcelona star Ansu Fati and they are reportedly willing to pay £153 million to land him this summer transfer window.

Man United are yet to make any major signings but from the handwriting on the wall, they are prepared to make heavy signings before the end of the summer window with Ansu Fati expected to be one of them.

The 17-year-old striker is a golden boy for the Spanish La Liga outfit with Team Talk reporting that they are not willing to let him leave despite the chances of cashing in heavily.

Mundo Deportivo reports that the Catalans are now willing to end all interest in the player by handing Ansu Fati a new contract that will increase his release clause to £361 million which is obvious the Red Devils will not be able to pay.
