Manchester United receive double-club approach with the same tactic for £90m assets



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have been approached by two European clubs who are using the same tactic to secure £100 million worth of assets this summer.

INEOS are looking to raise as much money as possible this summer with almost every single player up for sale at a certain price point as Manchester United need funds to revamp their squad.

Only Kobbie Mainoo, Alejandro Garnacho, and Ramsus Højlund are not for sale at any fee, and it is likely that Sir Jim Ratcliffe will want to raise over £150 million this summer.

As well as coming from those who may leave the first team, it is also expected that a large portion of money will come from sales of players who are currently on loan.

Mason Greenwood, Jadon Sancho, Donny van de Beek, and Alvaro Fernandez are among those who will almost certainly secure transfers elsewhere during the summer of 2024.

Getafe’s Greenwood tactic

However, there is a sticking point with Greenwood’s potential sale. The English winger has been on loan at La Liga side Getafe for this season after the club decided it would be better for him to recommence his career elsewhere following a CPS investigation.

With United wanting between £30-40 million this summer, Getafe are keen to keep the player but are unable to raise those kinds of funds, so are looking for a further loan.

According to The Athletic, United are now in talks with Getafe over a possible second loan deal, with senior sources at the La Liga club claiming they “are unlikely to consider signing the striker on a permanent basis”.

Although United would prefer a permanent fee, it is said that another loan move will be considered should an acceptable fee not arrive.

Dortmund doing the same

Alongside Greenwood’s sale, United also want to cash in on Sancho this summer after the winger fell out with Ten Hag earlier this campaign.

Sancho then headed to his former club, Borussia Dortmund, to refind his form after he was banished from United’s team. Reports have since claimed that Dortmund now wants Sancho back this summer.

According to German transfer expert Patrick Berger, Dortmund is exploring an idea similar to Getafe’s of securing the player, this time Sancho, on a second loan deal with the club.

However, the difference here would be that the loan move would also include an obligation to buy in the next summer window. Sancho’s current contract expires in 2026, meaning next summer is the final summer United can retain a fee for the English wideman.

Although the report claims that a price tag has not been set, other rumours have United’s demands at between £35-40 million, with some claiming it is up to £50 million considering the player’s age and talent.

At their heights, United could fetch as much as £90 million for Greenwood and Sancho this summer.
