Man United keen on securing services of ex-Barcelona youngster


Manchester United could allegedly turn to fellow Premier League side Wolves star Adama Traore as an alternative to forward Jadon Sancho.

Duncan Castles states the Spanish winger could be on his way to the Red Devils if United fail to strike terms with Borussia Dortmund ace.

It’s claimed United have already struck personal terms on a five-year contract worth £140,000-a-week but BVB management are said to be demanding a whopping £108 million for the tricky Englishman.

They are only willing to spend £50m, in spite of the Norweigan Ole Gunnar Solskjaer begging Ed Woodward for reinforcements, and Duncan reckons they are eyeing alternatives.

One such option could be Wolves attacker, who has impressed under the Portuguese tactician, Nuno Espirito Santo.

However, Traore is rated by his club at £90m, which could halt Red Devils in their tracks immediately and even force them into a move for Real Madrid star James Rodriguez.

Duncan told the Transfer Window podcast: “When you have Man Utd briefing that they are not prepared to pay anything like the fee that Dortmund have made clear they want, that would suggest actually it’s going to get thrown out rather than resolved

“It’s definitely the priority position for United, Sancho is their preferred target for that role. But they are discussing other individuals. Jack Grealish is a possibility to come in.

“There is an interest in Adama Traore but I do not see them going to the levels that Wolves are asking, for that player, it’s a similar level to what Dortmund are asking.”
