Man Utd have serious Jadon Sancho transfer concern as club work on Raphael Varane signing

Manchester United have Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane at the top of their transfer wishlist.

However, reports claim the Red Devils are concerned about potentially being ‘ripped off’ when it comes to signing the Borussia Dortmund star.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eager to strengthen his squad this summer, knowing his side need reinforcements if they’re to win the Premier League title.

Though they finished second in the Premier League table, their defeat to Villarreal in the Europa League final means they still have plenty of work to do if they’re to win the biggest trophies on offer.

United are interested in Sancho, having tried three times to sign the England international in the past.

Yet the Daily Mail say they’re keen not to get ripped off when it comes to bringing the 21-year-old to Old Trafford.

Paul Pogba has never justified his £89million price tag after returning from Juventus back in the summer transfer window of 2016, while the jury is still out on Harry Maguire.

And with United keen not to overpay for Sancho, those concerns suggest a deal taking the Dortmund star to Old Trafford is far from guaranteed.

Regarding Varane, it’s said the Red Devils are ‘working on’ the signing of the Real Madrid star.

Sir Alex Ferguson wanted to bring the centre-back to the club a decade ago, believing he’d be the perfect long term replacement for Rio Ferdinand.

But United ended up missing out, with Varane lured to Real Madrid instead.

Now, with the player’s contract expiring next year, there’s every chance Los Blancos will cash in on their prized asset.
