Borussia Dortmund is refusing to lower their €120 million ($142 million) asking price from Manchester United for Jadon Sancho, which is putting the deal in jeopardy.
Sancho remains United's principal target this summer but they are prepared to walk away from negotiations.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to sign a right winger ahead of next season with Kingsley Coman another option.
The financial issues stemming from COVID-19 is making United more price conscious.
Sancho's former club, Manchester City, are entitled to 15 percent of any profit Dortmund make after signing the forward for £8 million in 2017.
