Solskjaer frustrated after Woodward’s unrealistic opening offer for Sancho

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his United coaching staff are reportedly growing increasingly more frustrated by executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward’s seemingly unwillingness to speed the signing of Jadon Sancho up.

Sancho, 20, has been a long-term target for the Reds with a valuation believed to be within the region of £100m, as per The Times.

United are believed to be the only club interested in the break-out English winger which could be the reason why Woodward is adamant he can drive Dortmund’s eye-watering valuation down.

However, according to recent reports from ESPN, Solskjaer and his coaching staff are becoming frustrated with how long the saga is taking to complete.

Solskjaer and his staff are rumoured to be annoyed by Woodward’s ‘unrealistic’ opening offer to Dortmund of £50m and would prefer the executive tie up the signing sooner rather than later.

The Norwegian is understood to be keen to avoid a similar situation to the one fans saw when club captain Harry Maguire arrived last year.

Woodward was believed to be negotiating a deal for Maguire with Leicester City rumoured to be around £40m, however, the Foxes remained firm in their valuation of the commanding centre-back and United were forced to pay the full £80m valuation, as per Sky Sports News.
