Real Madrid and Barcelona could enter the race to sign Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho if Manchester United fail to sign him this summer, according to Mirror Sport.
United have reached a deadlock in their negotiations with the German club, who are demanding a fee of £108million.
The Red Devils remain hopeful they can reach a deal, but Dortmund have repeatedly insisted the forward is going nowhere after a August 10 deadline was not met.
Sancho is currently at a preseason training camp in Switzerland with the club.
It is now believed that if Sancho eventually stays for the 2020/2021 season, Real and Barca could pounce next summer.
Neither of the LaLiga giants are in a position to make a bid for the 20-year-old ahead of next season, with both clubs feeling the economic strain of COVID-19.
