Man Utd transfer news: Sancho fee agreed, Jimenez closing in on move, Alexis boost

Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Manchester United on Friday, July 31.

The summer transfer window is now open and Manchester United are one of the clubs tipped to spend big despite the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is understood to have identified central defence, right-wing and centre-forward as three priorities to strengthen.

The likes of Jadon Sancho, Raul Jimenez and Alexis Sanchez all feature in the latest Manchester United transfer talk, and here, Sports Mole rounds up all of possible comings and goings from Old Trafford.

Friday morning's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup:

Manchester United are reportedly close to completing a deal for Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Raul Jimenez.

The Red Devils' pursuit of a permanent replacement for Romelu Lukaku has been well documented, and they are keen to strengthen up front despite the good form of Anthony Martial and Odion Ighalo's loan extension until January.

RTP reports that United have almost wrapped up a deal for the Mexico international, who has scored 26 times in 53 appearances across all competitions this season.

Juventus and Liverpool have also been touted as possible destinations, but United are now leading the race and Wolves have already reportedly lined up Braga's Paulinho as a replacement.

Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund 'agree Jadon Sancho fee'

The long-running Jadon Sancho saga has reportedly taken a significant step forward with Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund agreeing a fee for the winger.

Previous reports had suggested that Dortmund were unwilling to budge from their £110m asking price - a sum which United were reluctant to meet.

However, The Independent claims that the two clubs have now agreed an initial £60m fee for a deal to take place this summer, with the overall value of the transfer set to rise to more than £100m.

Sancho is United's top transfer target this summer following another prolific season for Dortmund, where he scored 20 goals and created 20 more in 44 appearances across all competitions.

Inter Milan 'confident of signing Alexis Sanchez'

Alexis Sanchez's ill-fated Manchester United career could be coming to a permanent end this summer, with Inter Milan reportedly confident of completing a deal for the attacker.

Sanchez has spent the 2019-20 season on loan at Inter, and the Serie A giants recently confirmed their desire to sign him on a permanent basis following a productive spell since lockdown.

The 31-year-old's mammoth wage demands are thought to be the biggest stumbling block in negotiations, but the Manchester Evening News reports that Inter are increasingly confident of striking a deal with talks now in an advanced stage.

United have reportedly not ruled out keeping Sanchez and attempting to reintegrate him into the first-team set-up at Old Trafford, but they are also open to selling him in order to significantly trim their wage bill.
