Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer tight-lipped on Jadon Sancho talks

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer kept his cards close to his chest as discussions continued over Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.

The Old Trafford giants are hoping to make the 20-year-old their marquee in a summer when the impact of the coronavirus pandemic means few other clubs can get anywhere near Dortmund’s lofty asking price.

The PA news agency understands discussions are ongoing about a deal for Sancho and Solskjaer gave little away when asked about the benefit of getting transfers completed early given the unusual backdrop.

“This transfer window is a long one and every transfer takes its course,” he said. “It is what it is.

“At the moment, I’ve got no updates for you anyway so if there’s any news, we’ll update you.”
