Manchester United are aiming to pull off two major transfers in January, with rumuors stating that they are preparing to attempt to sign both Jadon Sancho and Erling Braut Haaland.
United believe that there is a chance of securing a deal for Sancho in January after the 19-year-old England international was censured by Borussia Dortmund.
Sancho was fined and dropped by manager Lucien Favre for his side’s clash with Borussia Monchengladbach in October after he returned late from international duty.
The potential unease between club and player has alerted United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward to the possibility that Dortmund may be prepared to sanction the sale of Sancho in January, with it previously assumed that any deal would have to be completed at the end of the season.
Their strong cash position, which is has not been hugely changed despite the announcement of a £140m increase to the club’s debt on Monday, could also permit them to bring forward a deal for Red Bull Salzburg’s 19-year-old striker Haaland. The Norway international has been scouted by Solskjaer’s team, and a £85m ($110m) deal could be struck that would see Haaland sent back on loan to the Austrian club for the remainder of the season.
