Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Looking For Jadon Sancho Talks To Speed Up

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants Manchester United to accelerate their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho in order to avoid a repeat of last summer's protracted move for Harry Maguire, which resulted in the club paying a world record £80 million for the Leicester defender.

Sancho has a preference to return to Manchester and Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola ruled out a return to the Etihad Stadium for the England worldwide.

Depay had a hard spell at United but has been revitalised in France scoring 14 goals in 18 games across all competitions this season.

Dortmund have slapped a £100m price tag on Sancho and Woodward has publicly rebuffed claims his club will spend that amount on one player, especially given how coronavirus has affected their finances.

Still injured, Depay is unlikely to play in the second leg of Lyon's UEFA Champions League round of 16 tie against Serie A champions Juventus in Turin on 7 August, in which they hold a 1-0 lead.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has identified the 20-year-old as the ideal transfer target this summer on the back of a superb season in the Bundesliga. Reports in Germany suggest the youngster would be open to a move to Liverpool but Jurgen Klopp has also distanced the Merseyside club from the speculation.

Kelly however only made nine appearances this season for Bournemouth after being plagued with injuries and his lack of game time could stand in the way of any potential move.
