Manchester United will not pay more than £50m for Jadon Sancho
With the Germans seeking at least £100m for their ace, the Red Devils offer is more an attempt at humour rather than ambition.
Sancho is one of the best young talents in world football. A player of his pedigree will be a certified game-changer who can win matches on his own.
United are the favourites to agree to a deal. However, officials at Old Trafford believe Dortmund’s valuation does not reflect the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic. They have to substantially lower their price if a deal is to be completed.
It is difficult to see the Germans abide by United’s demands and give up one of their best talents.
Earlier this week, Dortmund’s CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke reiterated that Sancho would only leave if their valuation was met. United’s offer is hardly capable of changing that. (h/t Sky Sports)
