Man Utd could land Griezmann for just £50m as cheaper Jadon Sancho transfer alternative with Barcelona 'ready to sell'

MANCHESTER UNITED could try and land Antoine Griezmann in a £50million deal if Jadon Sancho is too expensive, according to reports.

The 20-year-old Dortmund star would set the Red Devils back over £100m this summer.

And Spanish reports claim that Griezmann could be available for half that fee.

OK Diario say that Barcelona are looking to recoup about £50m for the 30-year-old having signed him for £104million two years ago.

That price might tempt Manchester United into a summer swoop as they look for more quality up front.

The World Cup winner has scored just 15 LaLiga goals for Barcelona in two seasons and the Catalans are facing a financial crisis.

They're also looking to rebuild a squad that look set to miss out on the Spanish title again and are 4-1 down to PSG in the Champions League last 16.

Dortmund, meanwhile, are reportedly open to selling Sancho this summer.

And having failed to lure the player to Old Trafford last campaign, the Red Devils are understood to have retained their interest in the England international.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has also let it be known that he is keeping tabs on Sancho's Dortmund team-mate Erling Haaland.


But according to Bild, the Bundesliga outfit are desperate to keep hold of the Norwegian striker beyond this year.

That is despite the Norwegian striker being available for just £65m in 2022 due to a clause in his contract.

Instead of cashing in on the ex-Red Bull Salzburg marksman, the German news outlet states Dortmund would rather sell Sancho at the end of the season instead of Haaland.

They state that they are willing to part ways with the former Manchester City youth star if they receive a fee in the region of £104m.

It was claimed last week that Sancho's exit from Signal Iduna Park was 'set in stone'.

He could be one of eight players that could be offloaded by Dortmund as they look to recoup their losses caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
