MANCHESTER UNITED reportedly would prefer to sign Borussia Dortmund ace Jadon Sancho over England team-mate Harry Kane.
And experienced striker Edinson Cavani will continue his scoring exploits up front until Erling Haaland decides to call it quits at Dortmund.
According to the Daily Mail, Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer started planning for next season immediately after the Europa League final loss to Villarreal in Gdansk.
The recent extension of Cavani's contract means signing a top-class forward is less of a priority.
Whereas Sancho – a long-time target – is more of a priority, and would help push Mason Greenwood.
The 21-year-old has had another fine season in Germany, scoring 16 goals and providing 20 assists across all competitions.
Sancho's fine form also helped Dortmund to win the German Cup.
The report states that despite Kane wanting to leave this summer, United do not want to be dragged into a costly auction with rivals Manchester City.
And Daniel Levy will command a high fee for Spurs' biggest asset due to the player having three years left on his contract.
United are willing to wait for Haaland, who has indicated he will stay at Dortmund for at least another season.

The 20-year-old scored 41 goals across all competitions this season, and it's believed he will have a £65million release clause next summer.
But United would be met with stiff competition for the Norwegian wonderkid with the likes of Real Madrid keeping tabs on the striker's situation.
United's Norwegian boss Solskjaer is believed to have a good relationship with Haaland's family which could work in his favour.
