Manchester United transfer news is coming thick and fast ahead of this summer’s window. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has guided his side to second in the Premier League table, while they’re also in contention to win the Europa League. So Express Sport will now take a look at the latest gossip coming out of the Red Devils.
Sancho terms set
Manchester United are still interested in Jadon Sancho.
However, the Telegraph claim the Red Devils have outlined their terms – and they won’t be doing a deal if Borussia Dortmund charge the £108million they wanted back in the summer.
That price tag was deemed too steep because of the coronavirus crisis.
Yet there’s a sense Dortmund will lower their fee this time around, especially if they fail to qualify for the Champions League.
Sancho has long been linked with United, with interest actually dating back to Jose Mourinho’s time in charge.

Woodward comments emerge
The Telegraph also say Ed Woodward has privately expressed his delight with the appointment of John Murtough as football director.
The Red Devils decided to make the appointment earlier in the month.
And Woodward feels Murtough’s new role means he’ll be able to take a back seat when it comes to recruitment at the club.
The United supremo has signed hits such as Bruno Fernandes, Juan Mata, Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka throughout his spell at Old Trafford.
But he’s also signed duds ranging from Radamel Falcao to Angel Di Maria, Morgan Schneiderlin to Bastian Schweinsteiger.

United’s Ronaldo decision paves way for PSG transfer
Express Sport has already revealed that United won’t be going in for Ronaldo this summer.
And Spanish website OKDiario have claimed that the lack of interest from the Red Devils paves the way for a potential move to PSG.
It’s said the Ligue 1 giants may swoop for Ronaldo if they miss out on Lionel Messi.
And they could also strike a deal should Kylian Mbappe leave, with the France international being eyed by Real Madrid.
Juventus have publicly insisted Ronaldo will stay but, due to his costly wages, that may not actually be the case.
Rashford’s wise words
United star Marcus Rashford has opened up on what he’d tell his 10-year-old self.
“To stay concentrated, whether good things happen or bad tings happen,” Rashford said.
“I think it’s something that I probably learned mostly when I came into the first team in terms of results not going your way and, next week, it can go your way. In order for things to change and for consistency to happen, you have to find a balance.
”Of course, it’s normal to be upset and annoyed if you lose a game or draw a game.
“As players, we put that pressure on ourselves to go out to try to win every game. So yeah, that’s probably the advice I’d give to myself, just stay stable throughout ups and downs.“
Former United star Ben Thornley has defended Solskjaer following the club’s exit from the FA Cup on Sunday.
He told Tribal Football: “I completely understand the reasons why Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gave a few players a rest for Sunday’s FA Cup quarter-final against Leicester.
“It’s been a really heavy season with the games coming thick and fast.
“That’s the price you pay for going deep in competitions is that you’re playing three games a week.
“We didn’t get the result that we wanted but that was because we were second best on the day.”
