Manchester United will only pay £50m for Sancho, Napoli to sign Victor Osimhen

Manchester United have been tracking Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho for some time, but Sky Sports is reporting that they will only pay as much as £50 million for the 20-year-old.

Sancho has become one of the most sought-after players in Europe after moving to Germany from Manchester City's youth team for a paltry £8m in 2017. Dortmund valued him at around £100m before the coronavirus pandemic took hold and now his price is dropping by the day as his contract expires in 2022.

Bayern, Real Madrid, PSG and every top club in Europe are monitoring Sancho but the report states: 

United remain the strong favourites to agree a deal but officials behind the scenes at Old Trafford believe Dortmund's valuation does not sufficiently reflect the costly fallout from the coronavirus pandemic and must be cut substantially if a deal is to be reached.

As £100m to £50m is a big drop, Dortmund won't want to play ball at that price. Though somewhere around that fee next summer might do the trick.

It looks as if Bayern Munich are finally set to land long-coveted winger Leroy Sane.

Christian Falk of Bild is reporting that Bayern have finalised a deal with Manchester City for the 24-year-old Germany international.

Sane, who has missed almost the entire season with ACL tear suffered in the Community Shield, will reportedly cost Bayern around €50 million, a relative bargain for a player with Sane's resume and potential. Since arriving from Schalke 04 in 2016, Sane has scored 39 goals and added 45 assists in 135 games for City.

Lewandowski, Muller, Gnabry, Coman, Kimmich, Goretzka and now Sane? Bayern's attack is looking pretty scary for 2020-21!

Napoli are confident they have won the race to sign Lille duo Victor Osimhen and Gabriel for a combined price of €100m, sources have told ESPN's Julien Laurens.

Osimhen, a 21-year-old forward and Gabriel, a 22-year-old defender, travelled from Lille, where they have resumed training, to Italy on Tuesday to start talks with Aurelio De Laurentiis, the Napoli owner and his sporting director, Cristiano Giuntoli.

The offer made by the Serie A club is split €70m for Osimhen and €30m for Gabriel, which meets Lille's asking price. The two players are set to stay in the south of Italy for a few days where they will hold talks with Napoli manager Gennaro Gattuso and a deal could be finalised quickly.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he does not expect to spend heavily in the transfer window ahead of next season and sees a bright future for several youngsters looking to break into a strong main squad.

COVID has influenced both sides with ins and outs, that is completely normal, and it's just not likely that it'll be the most busy summer in the world, he told reporters.
We can't spend millions and millions because we want to, or we think it's nice to do. We never wanted that. The problem with a strong squad is how do you improve a strong squad in the transfer market? You have to be creative ... We try to find solutions internally and there's still a lot to come. We have three or four players who can make big steps.
