Manchester United have put Dominic Calvert-Lewin at the top of their transfer wishlist, reports say.
A host of top clubs in Spain and England are chasing Sancho and he is expected to fetch over £100million in transfer fees.
United baulked at the figures involved in the Haaland deal and the Sun claim their new priority is to sign Everton striker Calvert-Lewin.

The 22-year-old has scored 27 times in 110 appearances for Everton and fits the mould of the type of player United are interested in.
Calvert-Lewin received a glowing verdict from new Toffees boss Carlo Ancelotti, who backed his forward to become one of Europe’s best marksman.
‘He is a fantastic striker in my opinion – fantastic with the head, clever in the box, and sharp,’ Ancelotti said.

‘But he’s young and for this reason he has to improve. He is a humble guy and he doesn’t talk a lot.
‘I think he is going to be at the top in England and in Europe. He has all the qualities to be a top striker.’
United are particularly impressed with Calvert-Lewin’s attitude and humble nature, having risen through the ranks at Goodison Park.
Calvert-Lewin would cost in the region of £50m and United would move for the forward in the summer.
