Sancho is said to have told Dortmund his desire to leave the club and MEN Sport understands that he has a preference for returning to Manchester. Pep Guardiola excluded Manchester City from the race to sign the 20-year-old last week, giving United a free kick on signing.
Ian McGarry du Transfer window podcast believes Sancho will wave for an outing if Dortmund decides to block his move to United.
“In these scenarios, once you agree with the player and the player has clearly indicated their desire to leave and join you, it usually helps in terms of the player’s insistence in his current club regarding : ‘I want to go, I know what I want, I know what I’m doing, so if you don’t allow me to go, I’m going to wave,’ he said.
“And he’s a player who has had three separate incidents this season so far, fined for misconduct in terms of the club’s code of conduct and we know that Dortmund at various times said he had been a little problematic this season due to the unstable nature of its season, due mainly to the interest of Manchester United. ”
Elsewhere, United was credited with an interest in Real Madrid star James Rodriguez after reports said the Spanish giants were ready to cut the Colombian price.
Mark think Rodriguez has asked to leave the club with Madrid ready to sell for only 25 million euros.
They believe a transfer to the Premier League is likely for the 28-year-old, with United ready to fight Everton, Arsenal and Wolves to get his signature.
MEN Sport understands that Rodriguez is not a priority target for United because it has greatly exceeded the age of the players that Solskjaer is targeting. The huge salary demands of the former Porto man are also likely to be a major stumbling block for any deal.
