Man Utd transfer news: Jadon Sancho set to pocket £ 11million from Man City if Dortmund’s demands are met | Football | sport
Manchester United are reported to have to pay a little more than the amount they spent landing Harry Maguire two years ago in order to sign Jadon Sancho this summer. Borussia Dortmund have reportedly asked for £ 81.5million to release the winger, which would see Manchester City pocketing £ 11million as a result.
United are eager to land the England international after unsuccessfully trying to sign him a year ago due to Dortmund’s valuation of the £ 108million striker.
The 21-year-old will become United’s second most expensive addition of all time if the Red Devils pay more than £ 80million, less than the amount they gave Juventus to bring Paul Pogba back to Manchester.
But Dortmund’s reduced demands mean they will no longer have to break their club transfer record of £ 89million to sign Sancho, their main target for the next window, which opens on Wednesday.
the Daily Mirror Let’s say it’s because Dortmund will accept £ 81.5million for the player, who finished the 2020-21 season with 16 goals and 20 assists in all competitions.
Sancho, who is currently preparing for Euro 2020 with England’s Gareth Southgate side, has already made personal terms with United regarding a move to Old Trafford.
But it is said that Dortmund and United still have negotiations to do because the Bundesliga giants want a bigger chunk of the fee up front rather than in installments.
And the Mirror adds that following Sancho’s move to United for £ 81.5million, neighbors of Man City are said to earn £ 11million.
Sancho joined City from Watford in 2015 and spent two years at the Etihad, but left for Germany at the age of 17, not convinced of his first-team prospects under Pep Guardiola.
A contract offer of £ 30,000 a week has reportedly been made by the Citizens to convince the local prodigy to stay with them, but his move abroad was a hugely successful move, with 50 goals and 64 assists in 137 games seniors.
And the deal that brought Sancho to Dortmund saw City agree to a sell-out clause that guarantees them 15% of all costs out of the £ 8million spent on the big man four years ago.
the Manchester Evening News say a deal is not yet imminent to sign Sancho although Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is pushing for a deal.
The Norwegian sees Sancho as an ideal choice on the right wing for United while he can also operate on the left flank or in the middle as a No.10.
“This approach has allowed us to have one of the highest net transfer spending in world football over the past five years and to have one of the highest payrolls.”
While Solskjaer told Norwegian channel TV2: “We are second, but too far behind to threaten those who have won. Then we have to strengthen ourselves.
“Of course something is going to happen in the transition window. The world has become very different from 15-16 months ago, but we have to make some moves on the transfer window, but also with the team.
“It’s never possible to sit idly by. You are constantly looking for reinforcements. Football is dynamic, so unexpected things can happen like injury, illness, something familiar or someone wanting to move.
“You have to take everything possible into consideration and thoughtfulness. I will never sit down thinking that now the team is as I want them to be, because you always see other players or other teams. do whatever you want. “
