Manchester United will look elsewhere if they consider the signing of Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho too expensive, and that could mean a move for Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembélé, according to a new report.

Sancho is understood to be the Red Devil’s main target, with money set aside specifically for his signing. Dortmund have set a price tag of 100 million euros, with a deadline of August 10, according to the report.

Still, it seems United are not too worried about the deadline, considering it a bluff. They are looking to get the best price for the 20-year-old Englishman, and apparently they are willing to look elsewhere if Dortmund do not agree to haggle on the price.

Dembélé is currently injured, a state he has unfortunately found himself in quite often during his stay at Camp Nou. The player has two years left on his contract.
