As Jadon Sancho chips on with life in Germany as per normal, Man United need to think of a plan B in the meantime.
Manchester United look like their chase for Jadon Sancho’s signature could be put off for the time being. The asking price of €120m from Borussia Dortmund is seen as a hurdle the English club is unwilling to overjump in the current market and will turn their attention elsewhere.
The story has been the same and unchanged since day one of the Sancho-United sage. As per Fabrizio Romano, the player and club have sorted out personal terms a while back with only the asking price the holdup.
All reports in Germany claim the English attacker is happy and content with staying at Signal Iduna Park for another season. The club’s sporting director Sebastian Kehl proceeds in singing the same tune, Sancho will be a BVB play this season.

Man Utd have not submitted a new bid to sign him [€120m price tag]. Still same situation by 45 days. Personal terms agreed but clubs talks not progressing. 🔴 #MUFC

Now it appears United’s board are on the rebound and could jump at the chance to sign Gareth Bale on a cheap. Real Madrid are looking to offload and make space to help recover funds needed for new signings. The club is willing to pay half of his wages to whoever is prepared to take him off their hands.

Bale has been the Spaniards biggest rebel and thorn in their side but the move has been rewarding when you consider the number of accolades brought in during Bale’s time at the club, which includes three back-to-back Champions League trophies.
The duo, Madrid and Man United are already locked in negotiations over the proposed move of left-back Sergio Reguilón. The Old Trafford club must use these talks to their advantage and try to strike a double deal for Bale and the fullback.
He has the experience needed at United and Ole could certainly use a player with a record of 98 goals and 60 assists in 238 La Liga games.
