Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has refused to rule out a move for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.
Manchester United have been long term admirers of Sancho and look set to attempt to complete a swoop for the England international when the transfer window reopens.
Sancho, who has 17 goals and 17 assists in the Bundesliga this season, is into the last two years of his contract in Dortmund but doesn’t seem interested in extending his time in Germany.
Borussia would want at least £100million for Sancho but despite a huge fee, and already boasting Daniel James, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood, United aren’t apparently put off.
Solskjaer was cheekily asked by Norwegian TV channel Viaplay about the chances he will sign someone from Dortmund, he replied with a grin: “I’m good at math, but I can’t answer that question. There are many good footballers on many teams.”
United legend Solskjaer was further quizzed about his transfer plans and revealed he has held positive conversations with Ed Woodward and the Red Devils transfer crew over their strategy in the market.
“If something is in front of us screaming that it’s sensible, both from a sporting and a financial perspective — I know we’re going to try, but you can’t make any promises,” Solskjaer said.
“We’ve [him & the owners] had a good dialogue the entire time, and we’ve had a plan for it since I signed in March .
“The three months of lockdown and for how long we’ll have to play in front of empty stands, if we’ll play in the Champions League next season. There are many things like that which will be factors in terms of what we can do when the season is over.”
