No Sancho bid yet as Man Utd consider loan move for Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele


Ousmane Dembele, Jadon Sancho split

Manchester United are yet to make a bid to sign Jadon Sancho and could turn their attentions to Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele should they fail in their efforts to land the Borussia Dortmund winger.

Discussions to get the winger to Old Trafford have been continuing all summer, with the two clubs far apart on their valuation of the player.

United made progress in their negotiations earlier in the month with wages and agent fees but Dortmund’s asking price has been, and still remains, a sticking point.

The German side are holding out for a €120 million (£108m/$142m) fee for the 20-year-old, who has emerged as one of Europe's top attackers, but United believe that is an unrealistic price given the current economic climate and are unwilling to pay more than €100 million (£91m/$117m).

With the window closing on Monday October 5, United are still working on a deal and discussions are ongoing. However, they have yet to submit a bid for the former Manchester City man.

Should a deal not be agreed, the club have a list of alternatives they are considering.

Barcelona winger Dembele is one of the players the club have under consideration as a back up but it is likely that any move for the 23-year-old would be a loan deal and would only be pursued once they are convinced a move for Sancho is not happening.

Ivan Perisic and Douglas Costa are two other players who are under consideration. The club are also continuing negotiations with Porto over a deal for left-back Alex Telles to bring in competition to push Luke Shaw.

Andreas Pereira has agreed to join Lazio on a season-long loan, with the Italian side having the option to buy at the end of the campaign. It is understood the Serie A outfit will also foot his wage bill.

In addition, United are in ongoing discussions with Roma over a permanent deal for Chris Smalling, with the 30-year-old keen to return to the Italian club after having impressed on loan.
