Manchester United now have a massive boost in their plans to sign winger Jadon Sancho this summer, MySportDab reports.
The Borussia Dortmund player was United’s top target in the last summer transfer window, but things did go as expected.
Manchester United made it clear they won’t pay Dortmund’s outrageous £108m asking price for Jadon Sancho.
So far this season, it appears like United have avoided a poor decision problem after the 20-year-old’s poor form so far.
However, Sancho is back at his best again, with three goals and four assists in his last six matches for Borussia Dortmund.
The England man will likely be in demand again at the end of the season because Dortmund are unlikely to sell him during the season.
The Bundesliga Giants have a difficult battle of keeping him at the club this summer.
Now, According to Sport1, Manchester United could sign Sancho for less than Borussia Dortmund’s last year’s asking price.
MySportDab understands that Dortmund’s financial crisis could make them accept a lower fee for their star man at the end of the season.
Borussia Dortmund are expected to record losses of £88m due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The club’s financial situation will get worse if they qualify for the Champions League next season.
The Bundesliga club are currently seventh in the table after losing two of their last three matches in the German league.
They are still just three points behind fourth place but are also only two points from ninth place in a tough Bundesliga table.
Dortmund qualifying for the Champions League will be key if they want to keep Sancho at the club, even though his contract expires in 2023.
