Jadon Sancho ’s transfer saga surrounding Manchester United has gone on far too long for Jamie Carragher’s liking.
The Liverpool legend and Premier League pundit cannot understand why United are not backing off or completing a deal.
A pursuit has been ongoing since way back at the start of the summer, and Borussia Dortmund are relaxed.
United did not meet their £108m valuation of England winger Sancho, so they are happy to keep the 20-year-old in Germany.
While the Red Devils have agreed personal terms with Sancho, they are yet to agree a deal with Dortmund.
Daily Star Sport exclusively revealed last night that United intend to make a take-it-or-leave-it bid for Sancho by next week worth £90m.
Discussing the Sancho saga, Carragher said in his Telegraph column : "United’s hesitation in meeting Sancho’s valuation so far in this transfer window feels like it is an attempt to reverse the culture of overpaying.
"As fine a player as Sancho is, is he worth £108m? And what impact would such a deal have on the game time of Mason Greenwood, who looks like the best young attacking talent in the country by some distance, scoring 17 goals last season?
"If United think Sancho is worth it, the deal should have been done already.

“What I cannot understand is if United do not think so, why haven’t they moved on?
“If the deal is not right, regardless of how much it upsets fans, walking away and buying an alternative target can be a sign of strength, not weakness."
United only have 10 days left until the window closes to get a deal done for Sancho.
Otherwise they will face another few months without any new attackers, unless they turn to an alternative target instead.
