Manchester United’s deal to sign Jadon Sancho is up in the air, as wages and agent fees hold up a deal, according to reports.
Sancho has been long-reported to be Man Utd’s main transfer target this summer. Talks have rumbled on between the clubs in recent weeks, but United do not seem to be any closer to getting their man.
ESPN have reported that the main reason for this hold up is Sancho’s high wage demands and the requested agent fees.

The report adds that United’s higher-ups do not want to be held to ransom for extra money, and they are willing to step away from the deal.
United also believe that Borrusian Dortmund’s €120 million valuation for Sancho is unrealistic in today’s market. But Dortmund do not seem willing to budge and will not accept an offer below that amount.
Over the past two season’s, Sancho has progressed to become one of the most promising youngsters in Europe.
In the 2018/19 season, the attacker was involved in an impressive 28 goals from 34 Bundesliga outings. This included 12 goals and 14 assists.
Last season he did even better and increased this tally. Sancho featured in 32 league games in 2019/20 and bagged 17 goals along with 16 assists.
In this time, Sancho has also established himself as a regular in Gareth Southgate’s England side. Since making his debut in October 2018, the 20-year-old has been capped 11 times and has scored twice.
Man Utd announced their squad numbers on Friday ahead of the new campaign. Mason Greenwood has been given the number 11 jersey, while Brandon Williams has been bumped up to number 33.
Interestingly with Sancho still United’s main target this window, they have kept the number seven shirt free.
