Of all Sancho alternatives, who is readily available?


The headache with Man United at the moment is finding an alternative to England international winger Jadon Sancho who is a top target for the club but there has not been an agreement with Borussia Dortmund for a deal.

It is understood that the Red Devils are disappointed with the delay in the deal and the refusal of the Bundesliga outfit to bring down the fee. This is forcing the club to move in for other alternatives.

So far, Man United have been linked with the signature of Gareth Bale, Douglas Costa, and Ivan Perisic as a possible replacement but of them all, only one is readily available for a move.

The report of Gareth Bale’s interest in a return to Tottenham if he leaves Real Madrid is no longer hidden which remains he will not joining Man United again despite the interest be shown.

Also, Italian Serie A giants Juventus are yet to make up their mind on the future of Douglas Costa at the club and that means the Red Devils will have to go through another hurdle to snap up his signature.

However, with the latest report Manchester Evening News, Man United could be offered Ivan Perisic by Inter Milan as a swap deal for Chris Smalling as they are also interested in bringing in a new defender.

This will make signing Ivan Perisic easy for Man United but the decision that will have to be made is if they actually need him in the team or not.
