The summer transfer window is once again unfolding in a way totally different from what Manchester United fans would have loved it to be as the Red Devils have still not concluded their first summer business. Over a year ago, United were reportedly in the hunt to sign Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho, and even though they spent most of the last two summer transfer window negotiating with the German Bundesliga giants, they were still not able to seal the deal for the attacker.


Reports claimed that United failed to meet Dortmund’s asking price of £120 million so a deal could not be completed in any way. Following that incident and how the transfer saga played out, United fans were dissatisfied with their club’s way of handling their transfer business but they held their hopes so high that a deal would be struck between the two clubs in the near future.

While there is still no agreement for the transfer of England international star Sancho from Dortmund to Old Trafford, the two clubs are said to have been locked in negotiations since even before the transfer window opened for business but it has continued to be the same story. According to multiple reports, United manager Olé Gunnar Solksjær wants to sign at least one attacker – with Sancho being his primary target – I’ll need to sign a top central defender, and may also add a new player to the midfield department.

However, negotiations have been dragged on once again this summer and there remains some disparity between the amount the German club want and the amount that the English Premier League giants have put on the table. Although the deal is more likely to happen now than ever, it has taken too long already.
