Manchester United reportedly looking at four alternatives to Jadon Sancho, with Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele, Watford forward Ismaila Sarr, out-of-favour Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic and free agent Edinson Cavani on the list.
United have been trying for most of the window to secure Sancho's signature but, if they are unsuccessful, there are an array of potential alternatives on the table.
Speaking on Sky Sports' Transfer Show, Dharmesh Sheth outlined their options, saying: "It is thought Man United are working on at least four alternatives to Jadon Sancho.
"We’ve already heard about Ousmane Dembele, we also hear there are discussions at Old Trafford surrounding Watford’s Ismaila Sarr, Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic and the free agent Edinson Cavani, formerly of PSG.
"While Cavani and Jovic aren’t seen as like-for-like replacements for Sancho, I think Manchester United’s priority is to strengthen the depth of that forward line.
"With Cavani, Man United would have to take into account his wages and his age – he’s 33 years old – and also the length of the contract he would want at this stage of his career.
"As for Jovic, the Real Madrid boss Zineidne Zidane won’t rule out a departure. There are reports coming from Italy that he’s been offered to Roma.
"Then there is Sarr. If Manchester United fail to get Sancho, Cavani or Jovic, all is not lost because they can still buy Sarr until the domestic deadline on October 16 because Premier League clubs and EFL clubs can still do business after October 5 so they have another 11 days to maybe get a deal done.

"Manchester United’s interest in Sarr can almost take a back seat, they can use it as a watching brief just now, unless someone else comes in for him, of course."
Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman admitted that Ousmane Dembele's future at the club is out of his hands amid links with United, saying: "The first thing to say is that it is up to the club and to the player."
