Zorc also revealed a secret that Borussia Dortmund renewed Jadon Sancho’s deal until 2023 a year ago.
“Last summer we made some changes to Jadon’s salary to match his performances. So, we already extended his contract until 2023 a long time ago.”
MySportDab understands that Manchester United and Dortmund were far apart in terms of Jadon Sancho’s valuation.
Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke refused to reduce the £108m price tag.
