EPL: Man United Still Want Two Attackers Amid Sancho, Bale Setbacks

According to the London Evening Standard, Manchester United still want to sign two attackers despite the setbacks suffered in their pursuit of Jadon Sancho and Gareth Bale.

It was revealed that the club retains an interest in wingers Ivan Perisic and Douglas Costa as they continue to pursue a move for top target Jadon Sancho.

Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho has agreed personal terms with Manchester United and his agent fees have been sorted by the club but the Germans have proven difficult during negotiations for his transfer fee.

Dortmund are adamant that they won’t lower their £108m asking price for the England international.

Jadon Sancho is a long-term target for Manchester United but they might need to wait for a little while to sign him especially if Borussia Dortmund continue to play hardball.

Manchester United also have a long-term interest in Real Madrid star Gareth Bale but the Welsh international is closing in on a loan return to Tottenham Hotspur.

Bale is about to end his seven-year association with Real Madrid as he closes in on a move back to Spurs.

The Red Devils have already lined up Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic and Juventus star Douglas Costa as alternatives to Jadon Sancho in their search for a right-wing specialist. Inter Milan and Juventus are open to the sale of the aforementioned players.
