Man Utd considering change in Sancho transfer stance after bungled summer deal

Manchester United are considering changing their approach over Jadon Sancho following their failed attempts to sign him in the summer transfer window.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was desperate to sign the England international after a stunning season with Borussia Dortmund.

In 32 Bundesliga appearances, he scored 17 and assisted a further 16 but the German club demanded £109m for his services.

United refused to go that high and Dortmund told them to forget about any agreement over the summer.

But Sancho has failed to hit the heights of last season and has not even scored in the league so far.

It has led to Old Trafford officials believing that they have dodged a bullet over the 20-year-old.

Furthermore, they are prepared to cool their interest in the winger when the season is up and eye other targets, report the Mirror.

It would signal quite the U-turn from the Red Devils, who were desperate to sign him in the summer.

They had set aside the No. 7 shirt for the former Manchester City starlet while Solskjaer had made personal pleas to the board.

Fans were furious with United after missing out on Sancho but their decision to walk away has been vindicated.

Instead, Amad Diallo looks set to join up with the squad in the coming days after a £37m deal was agreed with Atalanta in the summer.

As part of the agreement, the 18-year-old was allowed to stay with the Serie A outfit until January.

Atalanta were keen on keeping the teenager until the end of the season and were looking to sign him back on loan.

But Solskjaer poured cold water on that deal and made sure Diallo arrived as part of the initial agreement at Old Trafford, which the youngster was also desperate for.

Meanwhile, the Norweigan has admitted he wants additions in the January transfer window.

He said: “As a manager, you always hope you can do something but, then again, it's not something that's nailed on.

"It has to be the right player, the right age, he's got to fit into this squad and for the right value.

”We're always looking and the transfer window will be open but it might not happen.“
