Surprise valuation for Sancho alternative
United are reportedly looking at alternatives to Jadon Sancho, and have identified Wolves winger Pedro Neto as a target.
The 21-year-old has been impressive this season and has five goals and four assists from 29 Premier League appearances.
The Sun claimed over the weekend that Neto is valued at £50m by Wolves.
However, the CIES Football Observatory values him at between £60m and £77m, so it seems United might have to pay significantly more to land him.
