Manchester United are prepared to bid for Kingsley Coman if Borussia Dortmund play hardball over Jadon Sancho. The Red Devils are now in talks with the Bundesliga outfit over a potential deal for the England international after reigniting their interest in the winger.
United have tabled an offer of £67million for Sancho in the past 24 hours but that was swiftly declined by Dortmund.
Instead, they proposed that United raise their offer by another £10m.
Last October, the two clubs became locked in talks over a deal but United failed to meet Dortmund’s valuation.
This time around there is optimism a deal is now closer than ever after Sancho’s price-tag dropped £28m to around £80m.
Coman wants to stay at Bayern but talks over a new contract have been complicated by his representatives.
As it stands, he has two years left on his deal but Bayern want to tie him down again to an improved contract.
The Frenchman has attracted plenty of fans in the Old Trafford boardroom over the years.
United were even said to be weighing up a move last summer before he struck the winner in the Champions League final against PSG in Lisbon.
The goal cemented his place in Bayern folklore and now he is appreciated more than ever in Bavaria.
Coman has won titles in France, Italy and Germany and is one of the most decorated players in Europe despite being just 24.
United are keen to add another right-winger to their squad with Sancho at the top of their shopping lost.
Solskjaer believes squad depth could hold the key to mounting a genuine Premier League title challenge next season.
