Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘willing to sell Daniel James to help fund bid for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho but Manchester United boss is yet to convince the board’
- Solskjaer still hopes to test Borussia Dortmund’s resolve over Sancho
- United’s offers have come nowhere near their £108m valuation for winger
- Solskjaer is yet to convince the club’s hierarchy to sanction sale of James
Borussia Dortmund have refused to budge on their £108million valuation, with United’s offers coming nowhere near that yet.
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly ready to sell Daniel James
Solskjaer could raise £25m from the sale of Leeds target James but is yet to convince the club’s hierarchy to sanction a deal, according to ESPN.
United have reported interest in a host of players, with their chase for Sancho being the transfer saga of the summer.
Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele is an alternative but only on loan, while Watford winger Ismaila Sarr has been mooted at a cost of £45m.
The club have been in negotiations over £18m-rated full back Alex Telles and have again failed to meet Porto’s valuation.
Solskjaer is yet to convince the club’s hierarchy to sanction a £25m deal for winger James
James, 22, has scored four goals in 47 appearances for United since completing an £18m move from Swansea during the 2019 summer transfer window.
James almost joined Leeds from Swansea in 2019, even travelling up to Yorkshire on January deadline day to sign a contract.
But the move collapsed after Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins pulled the plug at the eleventh hour.
James headed back to Swansea and eventually ended up signing for Manchester United the following summer.
