Man Utd have NOT dropped plans to sign BVB star Sancho

Manchester United have NOT shelved plans to sign Borussia Dortmund attacker Jadon Sancho this summer.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer accepts the transfer market will look “completely different" following the coronavirus pandemic - but intends to add to his forward line, with Sancho his primary target, says the London Evening Standard.

As well as a right-sided forward, he wants to bring in competition for Anthony Martial at the point of his attack.

"I think Mason (Greenwood), Anthony (Martial) and Marcus (Rashford) have been fantastic this season, they've scored up to 50 goals between them," he said. "Marcus got his injury, on course for his best season, Anthony too, and Mason of course is just a unique talent with his goal-scoring ability.

"But we're always looking to improve the squad. This uncertainty in the market now, who knows how football and the market is going to be, but I'm very happy with the squad I've got.

"Today's world is different to what it was two months ago. We've got to adjust, adapt, there's clubs out there struggling more than us financially. It's a new world, and I think the transfer market this summer will be completely different to what anyone thought it would be."
