United are at an impasse over their bid to buy Borussia Dortmund winger Sancho because of the club's €120m (£110m) valuation.
Here are further details on the same.
According to a report in The Guardian, Manchester United have agreed personal terms with the England international and made progress regarding agent fees.
However, Dortmund aren't willing to lower their value and want Sancho at the club this season.
United feel Dortmund's price for the 20-year-old is too high in the coronavirus-affected market.
United are yet to offer a formal bid for Sancho.
The DFB-Pokal first round match saw Sancho score the opener for Lucien Favre's team with a 14th-minute penalty.
Notably, Sancho made his 100th appearance for Dortmund in all competitions. He netted his 35th goal for the side.
The report adds that Gareth Bale is on the club's radar as a potential alternative.
Buying Bale is out of the question but if the Sancho deal proves impossible, United may try to take the 31-year-old on loan.
Bale remains out of favor under Zinedine Zidane and does not want to be considered a back-up option.
Real will be interested in loaning him out.
Asked if he would like to return to the Premier League, the Welshman told Sky Sports: "It's not really in my hands. If those options arise, it's something I'd look at for sure We'll see what happens."
Bale wasn't given many opportunities by Zidane in the 2019-20 season.
He made just 20 appearances in all competitions and scored three goals.
His relation with Zidane has diminished to a new low and things look difficult.
Moreover, Bale had earlier lashed out at Real Madrid fans for their behavior towards him.
In 251 matches, Bale has amassed 105 goals, besides winning numerous titles.
