DBasia.news – Manchester United are still working hard to bring Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Jadon Sancho into the summer transfer window this year. So far, however, it seems that negotiations are far from reaching an agreement for the two camps.
The Red Devils are reportedly asked to pay £ 108 million by Dortmund to sign the 20-year-old player. This price is very expensive especially considering the current conditions due to the corona virus pandemic.
Sancho had originally agreed to join Man United but Dortmund didn't want to sell him cheap. No doubt Jadon Sancho's soap opera has the potential to end in failure: Sancho survives with Dortmund and United bites his fingers.
However, United still have a plan B if they fail to recruit Sancho. The Express quoted Man United as eyeing Burnley's 20-year-old winger Dwight McNeil. In addition to being a winger, McNeil can also be an attacking midfielder.
Uniquely, McNeil can have the same fate as Paul Pogba: a former United academy who was sent back to Old Trafford after performing well at another club. As McNeil knows, a former United academy player in 2014 before going to Burnley academy.
The official price is much cheaper than Sancho and United can make up for 20-25 million euros. Last season McNeil appeared in all Premier League matches (38 times) and helped Sean Dyche's The Clarets finish in 10th place in the standings.
McNeil can be a cheap option for United if they fail to sign Sancho, plus he already knows United's culture. Besides McNeil, other alternative players are Douglas Costa (Juventus) and David Brooks (Bournemouth).
