Manchester United reportedly remain interested in Jadon Sancho, though could face competition from Real Madrid and Liverpool in the future.

The Red Devils were strongly linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund star Sancho though did not get a deal done during the summer transfer window.

It’s believed the Red Devils refused to pay Dortmund’s £108m asking price for the England star while Liverpool and Real were not in a position to sign Sancho this summer.

But ESPN report that both European giants are likely to be back in for the 20-year-old when finances settle down again.

And it’s claimed that United have not given up on signing the ex-Man City academy star with Sancho a club target rather than an Ole Gunnar Solskjaer one.

Solskjaer was a busy man on transfer deadline day with four new signings arriving at Old Trafford.

One of those was former PSG striker Edinson Cavani, who joins United having left the Ligue 1 giants at the end of last season.

Though former United forward Louis Saha admitted that the arrival of Cavani hints at desperation at Old Trafford.

He said: “A bit, yeah. When you look at the strength and attractiveness of United all over the world, I imagine many players want to join that side.

“They thought they had solved the defensive structure. They thought it was sorted. The focus was to find some creativity, those aspects with [Jadon] Sancho. He is a player that they need.

“The players like [Anthony] Martial, [Marcus] Rashford, [Mason] Greenwood, [Bruno] Fernandes – United are about scoring goals.

“There are too many mistakes. I can’t understand what’s happened in the last few months.

“They are just not good enough. They need some people who are nasty. It’s really bad. I don’t like it at all. I want nasty, I want attitude, that is what this team needs.”
