Man Utd waiting until last minute for Grealish as Sancho deal nears completion

Manchester United are prepared to wait until late in the window to sign Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish.

United are closing in on a deal for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

Multiple outlets in the UK have reported that Sancho has agreed a five-year contract with United worth £220k-a-week.

Dortmund and the Red Devils must negotiate a fee, with the latter willing to pay £70m up front and £110m in total.

And the Daily Mail says Ed Woodward will now wait until late in the window to pursue Grealish.

Finances are tighter this summer due to the coronavirus pandemic, but United could raise more funds by selling fringe players.

Villa are in no pressure to sell cheaply after they avoided relegation, and reports have claimed they want at least £80m for their captain.
