Several media outlets have already reported that the Red Devils have agreed personal terms with Jadon Sancho to hire his services this summer.
As far as the transfer fee is concerned, Fabrizo Romano talked about an asking price of 95 million euros (£81.5million). The latest reports look highly positive for the United faithful.
According to AS, the Red Devils are close to reaching an agreement with Borussia Dortmund over the signing of the 21-year-old winger.
As per the Spanish news source’s own information, Man Utd are now willing to meet the asking price of the German club and agree a fee worth £81.5million to get the deal over the line. However, part of the amount would be paid in bonuses and variables
The add-ons should be achievable objectives and more importantly, they should be realistic as well.
According to The Athletic, Dortmund want the add-ons to be based on Man Utd’s success in terms of income and trophies and not on individual awards. The Old Trafford outfit wanted a Ballond’Or clause that would only be triggered if Sancho makes the top three.
The England international has never made it into the top 10, in fact, in the past few seasons, no Man Utd star has made it into the top 10 (Pogba was 15th in 2018). So, it is not surprising that the Bundesliga side are not interested in the clause.
Last year, Sancho was very close to moving to the 20-time English champions but it did not happen and AS claim that the participants are careful to avoid a breakdown this time. We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds in the coming days and will keep you updated.
