Man Utd fear Jadon Sancho transfer fight with Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool if £109m deal is not sealed this year

MANCHESTER UNITED fear missing out on Jadon Sancho to Real Madrid, Barcelona or Liverpool next summer, reports claim.

The Red Devils remain cautiously optimistic that they can sign the England star before October's transfer deadline, having "made progress" on personal terms with the winger.

But Borussia Dortmund are digging their heels in over their £109million valuation of the former Manchester City starlet.

United are adamant that they won't pay this fee and are willing to pursue loan options instead before returning for Sancho next summer.

But according to ESPN, the Red Devils fear that should this be the case, that they would face intense competition from the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool.

The trio of Europe's elite aren't in a position financially to make a move for the 20-year-old this summer in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

But next summer could potentially be a different story.

Sancho remains Man United's No1 target.

However, SunSport yesterday exclusively revealed that United are considering a loan move for out-of-favour Real Madrid star Gareth Bale, should they fail to reach an agreement with Dortmund for their preferred signing.

The Welshman could return to the Premier League on a temporary basis, with Real Madrid still paying a chunk of his eyewatering £600k-a-week wages.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side could face competition from Spurs for the 31-year-old, but would appear better-placed to afford his salary.

United are also considering loan swoops for the likes of Douglas Costa, Ivan Perisic and Kingsley Coman.

And they are leading the race for Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilon.
