Manchester United's Four Possible Alternatives To Jadon Sancho

Manchester United are running out of time to sign Jadon Sancho, but they do have four alternatives should they fail to sign their top target.

Barely a day goes by without United not signing Sancho and, with the transfer window closing on Monday, there isn't much time left to not sign him this summer.

If they don't sign him then Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side will still be short in attack and that's why they've got four alternatives to fall back on.

According to Sky Sports News, the Premier League side are looking at Ousmane Dembele, Ismaila Sarr and Edinson Cavani, whilst the Manchester Evening News claim the club want to sign Atalanta winger Amad Traore.

Sky had also claimed that Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic was also a potential loan signing but with Real letting Borja Mayoral move to Roma that is apparently now not an option.

Speaking on The Transfer Show, before Mayoral's move, Sky's Dharmesh Sheth said, "It is thought United are working on at least four alternatives to Sancho. While Cavani and Jovic aren't seen as like-for-like replacements, I think Manchester United's priority is to strengthen the depth of that forward line.

"With Cavani, Man Utd would have to take into account his wages and his age - he's 33 years old - and also the length of the contract he would want at this stage of his career.

"As for Jovic, the Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane won't rule out a departure. There are reports coming from Italy that he's been offered to Roma.

"Then there is Sarr. If Manchester United fail to get Sancho, Cavani or Jovic, all is not lost because they can still buy Sarr until the domestic deadline on October 16 because Premier League clubs and EFL clubs can still do business after October 5 so they have another 11 days to maybe get a deal done.

"Manchester United's interest in Sarr can almost take a back seat, they can use it as a watching brief just now, unless someone else comes in for him, of course.

Cavani is free to move whenever having left PSG in the summer, after his contract finished, and he has been heavily linked with Atletico Madrid.

Dembele and Sarr have both previously been linked with Liverpool, although their signing of Diogo Jota makes any move unlikely.

United have been so far unwilling to match Dortmund's asking price for Sancho, of £108 million, and unless that changes between now and 11pm Monday it looks likely the 20-year-old will stay in Germany this summer.
