Earlier this week, the deal of MU recruit the great Sancho be completed in a few days. However, the latest information or MU threatened to quit the deal because the price is too high given Dortmund in general the financial situation at present.
Woodward seemed to want to "try" Dortmund
"Reds" think Dortmund proved too impractical and make claims not satisfactory. The German team made the deadline to conclude the deal is on 10/8, an attempt not affect planning their pre-season preparations, are MU as just a blow pressure.
Vice president of United, Ed Woodward is understood moves this game more than anyone else. He also realized that the previous period was cut short season only brought unprecedented advantages for Dortmund in the case. MU can not let the negotiations lasted all summer.
Woodward was criticized in the past because of his negotiating tactics. Some deals are closing very fast, but some other cases dragged on for weeks, even months, before United decided not bargain anymore, but always pay the price proposed.
This is also likely to apply to the way that Woodward this deal, if the tough Dortmund than imagined. Sancho is the No. 1 target of Manchester United this summer, and they quit as current information is very strange event. Bruno Fernandes, Ander Herrera and Harry Maguire, Woodward has also applied this tactic.
In the case of Bruno, the first proposal from Sporting Lisbon and Manchester United £ 65 million which should have been able to pay this amount at the beginning of January and has always Bruno. But then they try to discount the Portuguese star, the deal extends to several weeks later. Then, on 22/1, Manchester United lost 0-2 at home to Burnley and pressures Woodward must immediately return the said price without any money down, so at the same time believe Barca are also interested in Bruno.
Maguire into service, MU even want to buy the midfielder from summer 2018, but that price is too high £ 70 million. However, United still have to come back to Maguire last summer because the team needed a good midfielder. This time Leicester had refused the proposal of 70 million pounds of "Reds" and shouting to 90 million pounds. By the time the last day of the transfer monitoring, MU had risked the last price of 80 million pounds and is accepted.
Go for Herrera, 2013 Woodward has replaced David Gill and undertake the transfer negotiations for MU. When the "Reds" expressed interest in Herrera, Bilbao insist they will not sell the star under contract buyout price 30.5 million pounds. But ignoring this MU, proposed 24 million pounds and naturally denied.
To the last day of the transfer, whether for additional 1 hour to complete the procedure, Woodward still believe that this price is too high. However, a year later, MU back with Herrera and pay the correct rates above to get the star. Supposed they could own more than 12 months earlier Herrera.
