Manchester United’s summer pursuits are proving to be somewhat of a gift horse for speculations. The Red Devils have seldom been this desperate to prove themselves and give the fans something positive.

A host of names have been linked with the Mancunian giants but most of the bigger sagas seemed to have wilted away this summer. With Daniel James signed, United still haven’t satisfied either their tactical reinforcements nor the kind of players the fans are anticipating.

While they are still expected to succeed in signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka, things still appear grim regarding their other pursuits. To make matters worse, the potential departures of Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku are still looming over their heads.

However, there may be a way for the club to put a positive spin on the affair.

According to Forbes, Manchester United could revisit their interest in Jadon Sancho if Paul Pogba departs for the expected sum this summer.

The report stresses that the Red Devils had admitted that they may not be able to acquire the young Englishman from Borussia Dortmund. The German giants stressing that the starlet was still in their plans over and over again appears to have sent the point home.

However, in the event massive funds become available from the sales of Lukaku and Pogba, United may consider another attempt at the former Manchester City player.

Sancho has been the breakout teenager last campaign and carries a lot of popularity on social media. This could translate quite well into a commercial appeal, an opportunity that United should consider heavily given that losing out on Pogba will also mean that the Frenchman’s brand goes with him.

However, the stance that Dortmund have taken does make it seem quite difficult for the Premier League giants to power through, even with a ridiculously high offer.
