Thursday's Barcelona transfer talk news roundup: Jadon Sancho, Alex Telles, Ousmane Dembele

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Barcelona on Thursday, October 1.

The summer transfer window has now begun, with rumours and speculation continuing to swirl as Barcelona eye possible reinforcements.

The Spanish champions spent big on Antoine Griezmann last summer but missed out on a big-name striker in January and have been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic, meaning that selling players rather than buying could be their priority this summer.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer news from the Camp Nou.

Thursday morning's Barcelona transfer talk news roundup:

Manchester United 'considering improved Jadon Sancho bid'

Manchester United are reportedly contemplating a fresh bid for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho before the end of the summer transfer window.

Dortmund have long insisted that Sancho will not be sold this year unless the Premier League giants are prepared to meet their £108m valuation.

That resulted in United's latest bid, which is said to be worth £91.3m, being rejected out of hand by the Bundesliga side earlier this week.

According to Sky Sports News, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and club officials must now decide whether to make another approach in the coming days.

United may instead move for a cheaper alternative with Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele allegedly emerging as a potential loan target.

Sancho still has three years left on his contract, a factor which leaves Dortmund in a strong position regarding the 20-year-old's future.

Manchester United 'expected to make two more signings'

Manchester United will reportedly bring two more new players to the club before the end of this summer's transfer window on October 5.

The Red Devils have signed Donny van de Beek from Ajax this summer but have thus far been frustrated in their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund attacker Jadon Sancho.

Porto defender Alex Telles also continues to be linked with a move to the 20-time English champions, who have picked up three points from their first two matches of the 2020-21 Premier League season.

According to The Athletic's David Ornstein, United are likely to sign a new left-back and right-sided attacker before Monday's deadline.

As well as Sancho, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are said to be considering Watford's Ismaila Sarr and Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele as potential attacking options.

The Red Devils are also allegedly weighing up a move for free agent Edinson Cavani.
