Man Utd have decided they won't pay over £50m to sign Jadon Sancho

Jadon Sancho for £50m? Dream on, United!

The Jadon Sancho to Manchester United rumours are showing no sign of slowing down anytime soon.

Borussia Dortmund's teenage superstar has been persistently linked with a return to England after his stunning performances in the Bundesliga.

In 2019/20 alone, the 19-year-old scored 17 times and assisted another 17 goals in just 32 appearances.

It's no wonder that Sancho is being valued by most at way over £100m. Over on Transfermarkt, the former Manchester City man is priced at £105m.

The CIES Football Observatory's bi-annual report saw Sancho valued at just over £150m.

Money talks in football these days, but all the goals, assists and high valuations have apparently not convinced United.

That's because Sky Sports report that the Red Devils are adamant that they will not pay over the odds for Sancho, with senior officials reportedly pricing him at just £50m due to the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic.

Their finances may have taken a hit, but this is still a club who paid close to £80m for Harry Maguire, a transfer fee so over the odds it's almost comical.

Dortmund signed Sancho for a fee of just £8m and have given him the perfect platform to grow into one of the best players in the world.

Their work with the teenage prodigy has been exemplary, so why on earth should they budge on their valuation of £100m+?

Sky Sports do also add that Dortmund are expected to announce a loss of £41m to the German stock market due to games being played behind-closed-doors.

Sancho in action

Senior United officials are hopeful that Dortmund will then be more willing to negotiate in the transfer market in order to balance their books.

But surely Dortmund would be more willing to offload other members of their squad on the cheap if they were eager to address their financial situation, no?

After all, players with the value and promise of Sancho don't come around every other week.

If United want the Englishman this summer, they may have to sell one of their own stars to fund the deal.
