Manchester United are reportedly concerned that missing out on Jadon Sancho this summer could lead to much stiffer competition for his signature next year.
Manchester United are reportedly concerned about the level of competition there could be to sign Jadon Sancho next year if they miss out on a deal this summer.
Sancho has been United's number one target throughout the ongoing transfer window, but Borussia Dortmund have so far refused to budge on their asking price of £108m.
Recent reports have suggested that the Red Devils are considering other options to the 20-year-old, including a loan move for Real Madrid outcast Gareth Bale.
However, ESPN reports that any delay in signing Sancho could result in much stiffer competition for his signature next summer, with many of Europe's bigger clubs reluctant to spend at the moment due to the knock-on effect of coronavirus.
The report claims that Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool are among the clubs who could move for Sancho in 2021, and that the England international would be open to joining those teams.
Dortmund boss Lucien Favre today reiterated that he is planning for the 2020-21 campaign with Sancho in his ranks.
