Latest News: Man Utd boss wants other Dortmund ace despite teammate being No.1 target


Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would prefer his side to sign Erling Haaland ahead of his teammate Jadon Sancho, according to reports.

Jadon was United’s No.1 target last summer but the Borussia Dortmund board stood firm over their £108m valuation of the England international.

The Red Devils refused to meet the Germans’ asking price and Sancho ended up staying at the Bundesliga club.

According to the Sunday Mirror, United’s management is now having second thoughts about launching a fresh move for Sancho at the end of the term.

The report adds that United still believe BVB’s valuation of Sancho is too high and are debating whether the Englishman is needed.

It’s also stated that Solskjaer’s preference would be to bring Erling to Old Trafford ahead of Sancho.

He was keen on signing the centre-forward from Red Bull Salzburg a year ago before he opted to sign for Die instead.

The 20-year-old ace has hit the ground running since joining the Signal Iduna Park outfit with 33 goals in 32 games.

Sancho, meanwhile, has struggled for form this campaign with just five assists and one goal in 12 Bundesliga appearances.

Elsewhere, the club are also poised to welcome the arrival of the Ivorian sensation Amad Traore from Atalanta BC.

The 18-year-old winger, who has been purchased for £37 million, is expected to begin training with the Red Devils’ first-team squad this month.

‘Amad, we’ve had all the paperwork, I can’t see any obstacles,’ Ole said this week. ‘Hope very soon he will be with us.

‘Very excited to have him in. He’ll need time to develop. ‘Apart from that I’m not thinking too much about January.’
