  • Borussia Dortmund placed a £100m price tag on the winger earlier this season 
  • But United are reportedly not prepared to pay more than their record of £89m 
  • Ed Woodward said they are not immune from the financial impact of Coronavirus

Manchester United are not prepared to ‘break the bank’ for Jadon Sancho but reportedly remain in the driving seat to secure his signature.

Borussia Dortmund placed a £100million price tag on the England international earlier this season with several European clubs desperate to sign him.

United are the favourites to sign the winger but Bleacher Report claim the Red Devils spending six-figure sums on a single player is unrealistic because of the financial impact of coronavirus.

The pandemic has seen player’s values drop by at least 15 per cent with clubs losing significant revenue while the sport remains suspended. 

United are said not to be keen to spend any more than the £89million they paid for Paul Pogba in 2016 and chief executive Ed Woodward warned the club’s transfer policy has changed since the virus spread.

However, he has claimed they can still be competitive when the next window opens despite not being ‘immune’ from the crisis.

‘Clearly it’s true we are fortunate to be in a strong financial position compared to many clubs, but we are not immune from the financial impact of what this virus is doing,’ he told supporters as part of a Q&A.

‘I would say that once we have that visibility of a path through the crisis and coming out of the other side to relative normality, then of course we aim to remain highly competitive in the market. 

Chelsea and Real Madrid also keen on Sancho who has had another oustanding season in the Bundesliga.

The 20-year-old netted 14 league goals and provided 16 assists before the season was suspended due to coronavirus.

The winger’s deal with Dortmund runs until 2022 meaning the German side are not under pressure to sell immediately but could face losing him for nothing if he refuses to sign a new deal.
