Manchester United are reportedly considering moves for
either Memphis Depay or Wilfried Zaha if Jadon Sancho's asking price is too
The Red Devils are keen to bring Sancho to Old Trafford with
the England winger described as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's 'dream signing'.
It was reported earlier this week that Sancho had
'unofficially confirmed' his desire to join United but the coronavirus pandemic
is forcing clubs to re-think their recruitment activity.
Borussia Dortmund would expect a fee in excess of
£100 million for the 20-year-old and, according to the Daily Express.
In the event that Solskjaer may have to look for cheaper
alternatives, the Express suggests United could move to re-sign either Depay or
Depay left United in 2017 after a miserable spell following
his £25 million move from PSV Eindhoven in 2015. Zaha too failed to make an
impact at Old Trafford and he was re-sold to Crystal Palace in 2015.
The report suggests either Depay or Zaha could be bought by
United for a lower fee compared to Sancho because the club retains buy-back
options on both players.
United do hold such an option over Depay; reports elsewhere
have suggested that there is no clause in the Zaha deal and Palace would offer
no discount should the Red Devils move again for the 27-year-old.
