Due to the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic, it has been claimed that club officials may only be willing to bid £50m for the England international.
However, according to The Athletic, United would be willing to pay in excess of that figure in the coming months.
The report suggests that the Premier League giants have specifically put money aside in order to win the race for the highly-regarded 20-year-old.
Nevertheless, it is added that United are contemplating whether there is value in pursuing a deal for Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele, who would cost significantly less than Sancho. body check tags ::
