Meanwhile, although Sancho is the club’s priority, former United star Paul Parker feels they should improve in defence and up top before landing the England international.
“Jadon Sancho would represent a decent signing, but it will be expensive and United need at least one good centre-half and probably a striker too because you can’t rely on Anthony Martial,” he told Eurosport.
“When things are going well with Martial it’s fine, but when things aren’t you worry about whether he’s going to put himself or the team first.
“Solskjaer has done better than other managers have with him, but I still see Martial as the type of player who wants to operate out wide and come into the middle.
“However, their most pressing priority is a centre-half.
“Manchester City seemingly pipped United to sign Nathan Ake for £40 million and that is good business, particularly in comparison to what was paid for Harry Maguire.”
