The Man United team will make progress on signing Jardon sancho deal as negotiations continue with DortmundThe winger is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s primary target and the club are continuing in discussions with the German side over a deal

According to reports, the England international remains a priority target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the club have continued with discussions to sign the former Manchester City man despite the German club’s sporting director Michael Zorc insisting he won’t be moving anywhere.

It is understood United are still adamant they will not pay the €120 million (£108m/$142m) fee Dortmund are holding out for however the club are continuing with constructive discussions.

United are keen not to repeat any mistake they made with Alexis Sanchez when his huge wages upset the structure and have been wary of that during talks.

It is understood there has been some progress made with Sancho’s agent in terms of wages and fees.

Going into the transfer window Sancho was United’s priority transfer target but the club are willing to walk away from a potential deal should a realistic fee not be agreed between the two clubs.

Consequently, they have been keeping an eye on other targets with Juventus winger Douglas Costa and Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele.

United have strengthened already in the window by bringing in midfielder Donny Van de Beek from Ajax for £35 million (€39m/$46m) but are looking to add more members to the squad before the October 5 deadline.

Real Madrid defender Sergio Reguilon has been monitored and is of interest to Solskjaer, but Sancho remains the priority target as the club look to bolster their attacking options.

It is understood Sancho is keen on a move to United, and back to the Premier League, but the biggest stumbling block remains over the two clubs agreeing on a fee that is deemed suitable by both sides due to the financial effects of the pandemic.

New signing Van de Beek was at the club’s Carrington training base for the first time on Wednesday as he met Solskjaer and some of his new teammates as they prepare for their opening game of the new season against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on September 19.
