Man Utd reach a Sancho agreement of sorts and have been ‘offered’ the best left-back in La Liga…
OK, calm down. It is an ‘agreement’, but unfortunately not one that is likely to see a deal completed anytime soon.
Borussia Dortmund have said they will adopt a ‘respectful manner’ in negotiations with Manchester United after months of speculation over Sancho’s future.
Bleacher Report claims United are annoyed by the level of detail being made public throughout negotiations, which saw a deadline set, and then missed, to secure the transfer.
United are now said to be hopeful that a deal for Sancho can still be completed, with the Mirror claiming they have now entered a more ‘feasible’ stage of negotiations.
And journalist Fredrik A. N. Filtvedt has claimed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken to the 20-year-old “several times” about the proposed move to Old Trafford, and that the Norwegian boss gave a “simple message to Woodward: Fix it!”
We like angry Ole.
‘OFFERED’ REGUILON AN ‘OPTION’
A far simpler move for United could be for Real Madrid full-back Sergio Reguilon.
The La Liga left-back of the season is surplus to requirements at the Bernabeu, with Zinedine Zidane spoilt for choice on the left side of defence with Marcelo and Ferland Mendy his preferred options.
But Reguilon has attracted interest from a number of clubs across Europe following his superb displays for Sevilla, both in the league and Europa League.
And transfer expert Fabrizio Romano claims United have been ‘offered’ the chance to sign Reguilon, who could be available for just £18million. United consider him an ‘option’ as they look to build on the signing of Donny van de Beek.
Sergio Reguilón has been offered to Man United. The board and Ole are considering him as an ‘option’. They’re gonna decide soon. Also Sevilla have asked to have him back on loan from Real Madrid. The race is still on [also for other clubs]. 🔴 #MUFC #RealMadrid #transfers

FOXES IN FOR FOFANA
Leicester City are reportedly keen on teenage defender Wesley Fofana, but are unwilling to meet St Etienne’s asking price.
Fofana’s outstanding season has also led to interest from both AC Milan and Everton, but Brendan Rodgers is said to be desperate to find cover for Caglar Soyuncu and Jonny Evans.
The Foxes are willing to part with around £18million to bring the 19-year-old to the King Power Stadium, but the Ligue 1 club are holding out for £27million, reports the Daily Mail.
Leicester recently completed a deal for Timothy Castagne, signed for £22million from Atalanta, but Rodgers is thought to want to add a winger and a striker to his playing staff before the close of the transfer window.
