Recall that United did everything possible to get Sancho valued £108million, but Borussia Dortmund are adamant and are unwilling to let the England international go.

With the transfer window closing on October 5, Manchester United are looking at another possibility of getting a back-up for Antony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood.

26-year-old Ocampos is an Argentine who has been with Spanish outfit Sevilla since 2019 helping the club to Europa League glory last season.
