Manchester United could sell three players to raise funds for Sancho.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to incur a difficult and strenuous period as manager of Manchester United. The Norwegian has often faced adversity during his short tenure at the club, but the unprecedented crisis embroiling the world has thrown up a new and seemingly insurmountable challenge.

The Red Devils need to strengthen in the summer. United have lingered in the shadows of their arch rivals Liverpool and Manchester City for far too long. The unruly hegemony must come to a halt and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be desperate to make it stop.

In order to do that, the Norwegian will need the right calibre of players. Individuals who have what it takes to take the Red Devils to the next level.

Players like Jadon Sancho, who has been heavily linked with a move to the Red Devils ahead of the summer transfer window, could be ideal candidates.

However, with the financial fallout expected to impact Man United themselves, the Red Devils will need to reconsider how to fund the hefty move for Jadon Sancho who is valued over £100 million by Borussia Dortmund.

A report by the Evening Standard via the Metro has claimed the Red Devils will look to secure permanent deals for the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo in order to raise funds for potential transfers.

The Evening Standard claims that amidst the current situation, United may struggle to secure permanent deals, however it is clear neither of the three are valued at the club and the Red Devils would prefer permanent deals for the current loan stars.

If somehow, United can recoup some money for the aforementioned trio, that would undoubtedly bode well for the club’s transfer budget and a potential deal to secure Jadon Sancho.

Ultimately offloading United’s current loan stars could prove to be the key in order to sanction a deal for the Borussia Dortmund winger.

The current situation is of course unprecedented and much uncertainty still surrounds the footballing landscape which will be revealed in time.

For now as the Evening Standard has reported, United have still assured Solskjaer that the club will be ‘highly competitive in the market.’

Could not being able to offload their loan stars scupper that? Only time will tell.
