Manchester United could lose Jesse Lingard when the transfer window reopens. But they could also bolster their squad, with Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Antoine Griezmann all targets. All four players’ fees have been revealed, so Express Sport will now take a look through them.
Manchester United are willing to buy Sancho for a reduced fee of around £50million.
That’s according to Eurosport, who claim the England international is still of interest at Borussia Dortmund.
The Red Devils walked away from a deal for the former Manchester City star in the summer because they felt that, at £108m, he was too expensive.
Especially with the coronavirus crisis raging on.
But it seems United could swoop to sign Sancho, especially with Anthony Martial misfiring at the tip of their attack this term.

Varane has long been on United’s transfer radar.
The France international was eyed by Sir Alex Ferguson before moving to Real Madrid in 2011, while Jose Mourinho also tried to sign him during his Old Trafford reign.
In the years since, Varane has established himself as one of the best defenders on the planet – helping Los Blancos win every trophy going.

But, with his contract expiring in 2022, talk of a move away has arisen.
And OKDiario say Real are willing to let the 2018 World Cup winner go for as little as £43m if they’re forced to cash in.
OkDiario have also claimed United remain interested in Barcelona star Griezmann.
The France international has struggled to impress at the Nou Camp ever since his arrival from Atletico Madrid back in the summer transfer window of 2019.
And it’s claimed Barcelona are hoping to pocket £52m from a potential departure this summer.
The Catalan giants need to balance the books in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.
And they’re also eager to grant Lionel Messi’s wish of a strong sporting project as uncertainty over his own future rumbles on.
United loaned Lingard to West Ham in January after the England international had fallen down Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s pecking order.
But he’s been in magnificent form for the Hammers, scoring three goals in his first five games for his new club.
And Eurosport claim United are ready to listen to offers at around the £20m mark.
Initially, upon chasing Lingard, West Ham offered them a fee of £15m – plus £1.5m for an initial loan.
But United, it seems, believe they can get more for their playmaker.
Solskjaer was coy when quizzed on transfers recently, admitting he was happy with the squad he currently has at his disposal.
“I have a strong squad, a deep squad,” said the 48-year-old.
“I can’t say if it’s going to be ‘X’ amount of signings in the summer. We still look at players and it has to be the right one.
“It is not the amount of transfers.”
