Manchester United to sell six players to rise fund for Jadon Sancho

Manchester United are trying to to raise funds for the purchase of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, who has a £115million price tag on his head.

The Red Devils have seen their revenue streams hit hard because of the coronavirus and will have less money to spend in the next window.

Senior United officials have made it known that they will not shell out more than £50m for Sancho.

But Woodward is hoping he can offload six fringe players in a bid to raise funds.

According to the Athletic, Alexis Sanchez, Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Jesse Lingard and Diogo Dalot could all leave Old Trafford.

Sanchez has flopped since his arrival from Arsenal in January 2018 and was sent on loan to Inter Milan this season.

Another star who could be tempted by a full-time switch to Italy is Smalling, who spent this year on loan to Roma.

The Athletic add that super-agent Mino Raiola could help Lingard engineer a move to Italy, with Jones also mooted to follow in his footsteps.

Along with Sancho, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also hoping his budget can stretch to another creative midfielder and a left-footed centre-back.

But the Norwegian boss knows he cannot get everything that he asks for. Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
