Manchester United dealt blow in pursuit of Bundesliga ace


Jadon Sancho’s future remains a hot topic.

With the summer transfer window looming, it remains to be seen if the England international will be staying in Germany or if he will make a mega-money move to another elite European club.

The Borussia Dortmund star has become something of a sensation in Germany, scoring 20 goals and registering 20 assists in all competitions but there has been plenty of interest in his signature.

Manchester United have been credited as being in the chase but Sport Bild now have a major update that could cast doubt over any move.

Sancho currently has a contract until 2022.

But Sport Bild claims that the German giants are plotting an offer that will raise the forward’s wages considerably.

He currently earns €6 million per year, according to the report, which equates to £5.4m, or £104,307-per-week.

Dortmund, though, are said to be willing to raise his salary to €10m, or £9m, per annum, which is a weekly wage of £173,845.


United are touted as the only possible option for Sancho this summer if he is to leave the Bundesliga, but he would cost €130m (£117.5m).

Any deal, though, is contingent on United qualifying for the Champions League.

GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…

It makes sense for Sancho to sign on, here.

United could be an attractive option but at Dortmund, he is a superstar, a guaranteed starter, and is drawing admiring glances from across the globe.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted finances across the globe and one has to think that, once the market stabilises, there will be more options for the Englishman.

The likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Liverpool would surely have an interest.

Taking the first move that comes along, though, just doesn’t make good personal sense for Sancho.

If Dortmund are offering him a new deal, and a major salary increase, he ought to take it, and look to the future, instead of moving for the sake of it.
