Manchester United need a top-tier winger to bolster their squad and, as of today, their two main goals have fallen short. The big dream at Old Trafford for a long time is to sign Jadon Sancho (20 years old), who is called to be the next great crack English. The young winger left City in 2017 due to the sports project offered by Dortmund and his reinforcement would be a double victory: to recruit the one who should be the benchmark of the English team for the next decade and also wear red devil to a canterano of the City, whose loss still stings.
However, Borussia Dortmund does not lower its claims (it asks for more than 120 million) and in the current economic situation United does not see it feasible to assume the amount that the transfer would cost plus the high salary that the footballer asks for. For this reason, they begin to resign themselves to postponing their hiring until next summer.
At Old Trafford they were always aware of how difficult the signing of Sancho was going to be and that is why talks began to try to reinforce Ferran Torres. The Valencia youth squad is the other great offensive star of that generation of 2000 in Europe. A profile similar to that of Sancho, although at a much more affordable price (Valencia needed to sell and his contract would end in 2021). But in that fight for Ferran they met with City, which offered him a sports project that convinced the Spanish international (they paid 23 million more variable for him).
That rejection of Ferran, together with the difficulty of signing Sancho, causes that today the transfer of Bale fits into the United project.
