World News – GB – Manchester United in talks for Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele, Jadon Sancho’s new candidacy considered



Man Utd’s £ 91 3m bid for Sancho rejected by Borussia Dortmund; United are working on four alternative options – Dembele, Watford’s Ismaila Sarr, Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic and free agent Edinson Cavani

Manchester United are in talks with Barcelona over a loan deal for Ousmane Dembele, while the Premier League club are also considering an improved offer for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho

United are keen on signing a winger during this transfer window and, although their first choice is Sancho, Dembele represent a strong alternative

The 23-year-old was a club record signing for Barcelona when he arrived from Borussia Dortmund for € 105m (£ 95m) in August 2017

He won two La Liga and Copa del Rey titles in his three seasons in Spain, but was limited to 75 appearances in all competitions by a series of injuries

The France international is one of four alternative options United are working on if they can’t sign Sancho, along with Watford’s Ismaila Sarr, Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic and free agent Edinson Cavani

On Tuesday United made an offer on Sancho worth up to £ 91.3million (€ 100million) rejected by Borussia Dortmund The offer was initially for £ 73million sterling, going up to £ 913million, which is lower than Dortmund’s valuation of £ 108million

Dortmund have set United a deadline of August 10 to strike a deal with Sancho and have repeatedly said the winger will not be leaving now that that date has passed

Sancho did not travel with the rest of the Dortmund squad for the German Super Cup match against Bayern Munich on Wednesday due to a « respiratory infection » He tested negative for Covid-19

If United manage to sign a winger before Monday’s transfer deadline, it could have repercussions for Daniel James, who has only played 45 minutes this season

The 22-year-old was the subject of a loan offer from Leeds last week and, if he wants to stay and fight for his place at Old Trafford, the arrival of another winger could lead to a reassessment of his future at the club

Former Manchester United assistant coach Steve McClaren told Sky Sports News he believes Dembele will only be a short-term option for his former club, until they are in able to sign Sancho

McClaren urged United to respect Dortmund’s asking price for Sancho, and also wants them to improve their defense, saying: « They need a center-forward, they need a center-back and they need a left rear These are the priorities

« But players like Sancho don’t come very often He’s a one-off type of player to get into Manchester United They’ve looked all over the world They’re only missing £ 20million – come on, do the business! It’s for the future

« United have done well so far with their scouting and the people they’ve recruited. If they’re still going for Sancho, then I think Dembele is for the short term, a stopgap

« But they need a center-forward, and they need a center-back If they want to play hard and a high line, they need speed at the back »

A bluff to bring Borussia Dortmund to the table, or a real alternative for the season until efforts to sign Jadon Sancho can be renewed next summer, on or off the pitch, Ousmane Dembele could definitely do a job for Manchester United

World Cup winner Dembele undoubtedly has a pedigree Charged with filling Neymar’s shoes, the 23-year-old was once the second most expensive signing in football history when he moved out from Dortmund to Camp Nou in 2017

There was a promising start and glimpses of sheer brilliance, but with more time spent on the treatment table than on the pitch, it’s fair to say that Dembele’s move to Barcelona didn’t respond expectations to

In just over three seasons, Dembele has only made 52 La Liga appearances for Barcelona, ​​scoring just 12 goals In the same period, since the start of the 2017/18 season, Sancho has made 80 appearances and 30 goals for former club Dembele Dortmund in Bundesliga

The numbers are stacked in Sancho’s favor and yet, as we move into the final week of the summer window, United are in talks with alternatives to their main goal

United may not be solely responsible for the Sancho standoff, but a move by an injury-prone player who has only made one 20-minute appearance throughout 2020 is symptomatic of the now frenzied rush to bring the signatures to Old Trafford, whatever their meaning

Football writer Andy Mitten questioned Manchester United’s waning power in the transfer market and said he had lost the ability to do the « dark arts of transfers » with fans receiving  » contradictory messages « on the club’s financial situation

« It’s very frustrating for the fans and they’ve only seen one player arrive so far, » Mitten told Sky Sports News

« I don’t think anyone has the same pulling power as Sir Alex Ferguson, but to be fair to Ole he called and I know he spoke to several managers of players he loves »

The summer transfer window closes at 11 p.m. on Monday 5 October with a feast of activities scheduled on the day of the transfer deadline on Sky Sports News and on our Sky Sports platforms

A domestic markets window for Premier League-EFL deals then runs from October 5 and ends on Friday October 16 at 5 p.m. Follow all news and analysis on SSN and platforms from Sky Sports, including our dedicated blog at the Transfer Center
