United, for their part, are still determined to sign Sancho.
But with time running out they may have to swoop for a different player instead.
Meanwhile, speaking recently, United legend Gary Neville opened up on Sancho and expressed a belief that the club should switch focus.
“Like everyone else they had three months off because of coronavirus, so I don’t think it should be the case they didn’t have the resource or time to get things done,” Neville told the Daily Mail.
“Chelsea got their business done, [Manchester] City have got three or four pieces done. I don’t think timing’s the issue.
“It’s just a thing with United that every time they go for a player in the last four, five, six years it feels they are a little bit desperate.
