GOOD MORNING RED DEVILS FANS
SunSport understands Man United are closing in on an £80million deal to buy Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
The Old Trafford club made a £72m bid yesterday but they are prepared to go to £80m to get their man.
Personal terms based on a five-year deal worth £350,000-a-week have already been agreed.
United also spoke to Erling Haaland before the Euros, but the Dortmund striker has his heart set on a move to Real Madrid.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid are reportedly ready to sell Raphael Varane after the Man United target asked for a new challenge.
A summer transfer is said to be the 28-year-old’s desire following a decade at the Bernabeu.
Varane is out of contract in a year’s time and Los Blancos do not want to lose him on a free while battling the pandemic financial crisis.
According to The Athletic, a bid as little as £40million could persuade Real to sell up after talks with the player’s representatives.
Finally, Cristiano Ronaldo was subjected to ‘insults and beatings’ from Arsenal when the former Man United star tried tricks.
Former Gunner Robert Pires told Record: “Cristiano made feints and the English didn’t like it. It was just a beating.
“You can’t play like that against the English and you couldn’t do that at Highbury, Arsenal’s home. It was just insults and beatings.
“At first he didn’t stand it very well, it was complicated for him. Football in England is completely different.”
