Manchester United ‘plan £200m double deal in January’

Manchester United could reportedly move for Borussia Dortmund attacker Jadon Sancho and Red Bull Salzburg forward Erling Haaland when the January transfer window opens for business.
Both players have been strongly linked with moves to Old Trafford in recent months as the 20-time English champions prepare to spend big in a bid to return to former glories.

The Red Devils were allegedly prepared to wait until next summer to land the attacking duo, but according to The Mirror, the club are now weighing up a £200m double swoop in the January transfer window.

The report claims that Sancho could cost Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side in the region of £100m, while Haaland is likely to fetch around £85m having starred for Salzburg this season.

Sancho’s form for Dortmund has seen him linked with a number of teams, while the same can also be said for Haaland, who has scored a stunning 26 goals in 18 appearances at club level this season.

United boosted their defence over the summer with the signings of Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire, but the departures of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez have left Solskjaer short of options in attack.

The club are also reportedly considering a move for Brescia midfielder Sandro Tonali with the rebuild at Old Trafford underway after a testing few years since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure.
