Manchester United’s bid for Jadon Sancho has been declined by Borussia Dortmund as they are looking for around €£77.5 million for the 21-year old Englishman with an additional £4.25 million bonus, Manchester United had a £67 million for the ex-Manchester City player. It was earlier said that he has agreed to join the Manchester side on personal terms.
It is also said that in addition to the fees not being high enough, United wanted to pay the fee over five years, while Dortmund wanted it to extend to four years. United will be keen to avoid the mistake that they made a year ago when they were given a fee by Dortmund for Sancho they tried to believe that Dortmund will reduce it but they didn’t sell him for a reduced price. Out of Jadon Sancho, Erling Haaland, Jude Bellingham, Sancho is the only player that the German club is looking to sell this summer for the right price.
United manager ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be keen to get the deal done and has identified a right-sided attacking player as one of his priorities this summer. United has been struggling to get a player on the right side of the pitch with high quality and there is very little competition got that position. United struggled in attacking against Villarreal in the Europa League final which they eventually lost in penalties.
