- United believe its better going for Jadon Sancho than Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish as the Dortmund is more feasible that Grealish.
- Aston Villa are still in the Premier League and that increases Jack Grealish price tag.
- Dortmund have initially rejected Man United’s €98m offer as they are now demanding the Red Devils to make a turn with £110m cash.
Manchester United have halted interest on landing Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish as they turn full attention towards securing Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.
The Red Devils had their €98m offer turned down by the Bundesliga side on the first day of the transfer window and its reported that Dortmund are expecting the United to return with a higher amount for the English man despite the side being linked to signing Aston Villa captain, Jack Grealish.
Sancho is considered a top priority at Old Trafford with Ole Solskjaer looking to stregthen his lineup s ahead of the 2020/2021 campaign after finishing 3rd on the just ended season.

Dortmund have outlined that the Red Devils have until August 10th to finalize the deal considering that they are not even worried about the deal with one of their most valued assets.
Sancho’s deal still has two more years to run and the Yellow and Black side can comfortably hold back and sell him come next season.
€120m is the expected amount Dortmund want United to make a second offer with but its vividly clear that they might find that slightly difficult considering the financial hit enacted by the Corona virus pandemic.
Not just United though as many other teams have paused certain transfer deals, hoping to get their hands on more cheaper options.

United having in the past identified Grealish as an option should things go south with landing Sancho have now indicated would be backing off on the chase for the Villian.
Grealish will now be available for a more higher price considering his side are still in the Premier League and there are lesser chances he would want to push for a move out as he would have done if they had been relegated.

A relegation would have had Grealish wanting to force his way out of the club so as to keep playing in the upper league which would as well reduce his price tag. But they’re still up and also United do not consider Grealish as feasible as Sancho.
Mason Greenwood, Rashford and Anthony Martial classy pairing makes it sought of difficult fielding Grealish unlike Sancho who servers as an out-and-out winger. There is also a Bruno Fernandes which makes it more unlikely for Grealish’s arrival.Embed from Getty Images
Villa are reportedly asking for an amount around £80m which United thinks its wise better paying such huge amount for Sancho than Grealish.
Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman is another considered alternative but yet to make an official move for the French man.
As it stands, United are off Jack Grealish’s chase with all attentions turned to Sancho with no club yet asking after the player.
