Manchester United is also interested in signing Borussia Dortmund player Jadon Sancho this season.
According to Eurosport, Sancho is likely to ask for a move away from Dortmund at the end of the season, though Manchester United would choose not to overpay for him.
According to a previous Eurosport story, the Red Devils will want to pay about £50 million for Sancho, which may be a lot less than his club is hoping to get for him.
United supporters will certainly expect that their club will go to whatever extent to acquire this promising talent, but there is still a need to be vigilant in the transfer market during these tough times.
Both teams may have been infected by the coronavirus pandemic, which has resulted in them playing in vacant stadiums for almost a year.
MUFC does need a signing like Sancho, but there could be cheaper alternatives available if Dortmund does not reduce their demands for the England international.
If Eurosport is correct in their assessment that Sancho will press for a move away, it can only help United get him for the price they want. Both teams may have been infected by the coronavirus pandemic, which has resulted in them playing in vacant stadiums for almost a year.
