Why Manchester United are ‘setting themselves up to fail’ in pursuit of Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho

Manchester United are setting themselves up for a ‘fundamental error’ in their pursuit of Jadon Sancho, according to the German media.

Borussia Dortmund have set a deadline of August 10 for any deal to be completed with the club’s CEO Hans Joachim Watzke claiming there has been no bid nor any contact from the Red Devils.

Some reports had suggested that discussions were at an ‘advanced stage’ but this appears to not be the case.

Dortmund are believed to want £108million for Sancho but Man United will want to agree a figure much lower than this.

United insist they will not be bullied by the German club into paying this sum under the current coronavirus circumstances.

German magazine Kicker say the Manchester club are setting themselves up to fail.

An article in the publication read: “Manchester either agrees to handle the transfer on the terms dictated by Dortmund by August 10th – the start of the training camp in Bad Ragaz (Switzerland) – or there is no deal.”

The publication say that Ed Woodward is likely to submit an offer well below the £108million valuation so he can ‘save face with coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the United fans’.
