Manchester United are desperate to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, however, they are prepared to look elsewhere, as well. New reports have linked the Red Devils with Joao Felix a player who Cristiano Ronaldo rates highly.

Manchester United would love to sign Sancho but, at the current moment in time, are pondering whether to abandon their transfer pursuit. Dortmund are adamant their prized asset won’t be going anywhere unless their huge £108m asking price is paid in full.

And, according to Express, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is now eyeing a move for Atletico Madrid youngster Joao Felix, who has impressed his compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo. He previously said:

“Can he (Joao Felix) repeat my successes in Spain? I believe that a lot, because he is an excellent player with a lot of potential who can evolve.

“It is difficult to make calculations in current football. You bet a lot on the potential and the football industry is different.

“Leaving aside the case of Joao Felix, any player is worth €100m, even without having proven anything.”
