Borussia Dortmund are putting a Jadon Sancho contingency plan in place amid fears of a Manchester United transfer, Daily Star reports.
Sancho was linked with a move to Old Trafford throughout the summer transfer window, and he has experienced an indifferent season in the Bundesliga since the speculation.
France Football claim Dortmund are now preparing for his sale as they look to end Bayern Munich’s domestic dominance.
Stuttgart forward Tanguy Coulibaly has been identified as a “replacement” for the England international.
Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis has warned Manchester United and Liverpool they must offer at least £100m if they want to sign Kalidou Koulibaly this month, The Sun reports.
Liverpool are desperate for centre-back reinforcements after Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez suffered long-term injuries, and their interest in the 29-year-old Senegal defender has been known for some time.
Koulibaly, whose contract expires in summer 2023, has played in 18 games for Napoli this season, helping keep seven clean sheets.
De Laurentiis spoke to Jim White, and the Sky Sports News’ presenter relayed his conversation on talkSPORT.
“This morning, I spoke to Aurelio De Laurentiis, the Napoli owner, and said what about your player, are there bids in for him? He laughed it off saying he’s not for sale.
“It seems on this occasion Koulibaly is going nowhere. He stays and that was as recent as this morning. Anyone going in with anything other than £100million for Koulibaly can forget it.
“He’s absolutely not for sale unless one of the big clubs in England come up with £100million.”
