Manchester United have made progress in bringing Jadon Sancho back to the Premier League. Several international media, including Goal and the BBC, have reported that United have been in talks with the winger’s representatives during the past week and that they have made progress working towards a deal. It is believed that the two sides have come closer to an agreement on the player wages, bonuses and agent fees.
The England international remains a priority for United, despite Borussia Dortmund not willing to sell. The Germans set their own transfer deadline for Sancho at August 10 and as no club managed to reach an agreement, the German club insisted that Sancho would be staying with the club for the full 2020-21 campaign. Dortmund will start their Bundesliga season next week and Sancho will be expected to play Duisburg in the DFB Pokal on Monday.
It is understood that United are still very adamant of not paying Dortmund’s asking price of €120m and despite the stance of the Germans, United are positive a deal can be completed before the end of the window on October 6. The English giants are also keen on not making the same mistake they made with signing Alexis Sanchez. The Chilean was paid a massive salary at Old Trafford, disrupting the team’s structure. Sanchez has been sold to Italian club Internazionale recently, ending his horror stay with United after two and a half seasons.
