Sancho deal hits deadlock

Manchester United’s bid to sign English sensation, Jadon Sancho has hit a brick-wall following Borrusia Dortmund’s determination not to budge on their £108M valuation of the player.

United appeared to be optimistic of their chances of pricing Sancho to Old Trafford, having already agreed in principle, personal terms with the highly rated winger, and have been in advanced talks with Dortmund in a bid to bring Sancho back to Manchester.

Dortmund, however, appear not to be entertaining any negotiations on beating down the value of the player.

According to Skysports News reporter, Kaveh Solhekol, United and Dortmund remain a good distance apart with regard to the valuation of the player

“As far as Borussia Dortmund are concerned Man United have to pay €120m if they want Jadon Sancho. That’s not going to happen in current climate but Dortmund position is “non negotiable”. Window’s been open nine days and this one is already a saga. 61 days to go before it closes” Solhekol said.

Reports have now begun to surface that Manchester United are unhappy with Dortmund’s ‘unrealistic’ valuation of Jadon Sancho and are prepared to walk away from the deal.

Manchester United’s inability to strike a realistic wager for Sancho has been largely rumoured to be a difficulty of their own making, having splashed £130M to bring in Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka last term, setting off an impression which has now become difficult to erase.

Should United fail to bring in Jadon Sancho this summer, it is expected that they could make a play to bring in Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman on loan.
