Man Utd boss Solskjaer admits club don't have 'new millions' as Dortmund hold firm over Jadon Sancho fee

OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER admits Manchester United do not have “new millions” as Borussia Dortmund stand firm over Jadon Sancho's fee.

SunSport told you on September 2 that the England winger has already reached an agreement with United over wages.

It has now emerged the Red Devils have made some progress negotiating agent fees.

However, Solskaer’s side remain locked in talks with Dortmund over a transfer fee after having an initial bid of £70million – rising to £110m in bonuses – rejected.

United, who have only brought in £39m midfielder Donny van de Beek from Ajax this summer so far, have not given up on Sancho.

And after being quizzed by Radio Five Live whether he would be OK without any further additions, he appeared to warn the Bundesliga outfit his side will not be held to ransom over the 20-year-old.

Solskjaer said: “I am very happy working with these players and the squad.

“We always trying to improve and to see if there’s any way possible that we can improve this squad and bring players in that will have the right level of quality and the right personality and have all the right criteria.

“We all know this summer and this year has been a very strange one and it’s important that everyone understands that this has an effect on football and not everyone can spend millions and millions, and new millions.”

The Norwegian added: “It’s never easy to have too many new players in the team, it takes time for players to gel into units.

“We have seen some clubs go for the quick fix and get [players in, some have trust in the process and the continuation of the process and the coaching.

“We will have to get the results, our response has to be about improving, getting the results but also adding players with different qualities than we have, things that we need.

“When we signed Bruno, we knew we needed that type of player. Now we have signed Donny and he is the type of player that i felt we needed.

“He is the type of person who will fit the culture, and the team and will improve us for next season and for years to come.”

United remain keen on signing a new centre-back, with RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano in Solskjaer’s sights.

He would also like a left-back, with Real Madrid’s Sergio Reguilon eyed after an impressive loan at Sevilla.

United had been looking at Porto’s Alex Telles too, but it’s believed Wolves are closing in on a deal for the Brazilian.
