Real Madrid rival Man Utd as Sancho price dropped

Real Madrid are interested in Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

The Daily Star says Manchester United will be able to sign Sancho for £75million in the summer transfer window. But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faces competition for the winger from Real Madrid, who are favourites to sign Sancho after contacting Borussia Dortmund in January.

Sancho was United's top target throughout last summer, but executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward refused to match Dortmund's huge £108million price tag.

But with the Bundesliga club feeling the financial impact of the pandemic, they could cash in on both Sancho and Erling Haaland this summer.

And Dortmund have dropped their asking price for Sancho to £75m.

The Red Devils' interest cooled in Sancho after the 20-year-old's form dipped this season - but his performances have since picked up, with seven goals and six assists to his name across all competitions in 2021.
