Just one day after the Premier League season came to end, Manchester United have already made a formal move to sign Jadon Sancho.
It’s no secret that Jadon Sancho is United’s top transfer priority this season and as per 90min, the Old Trafford outfit have made a substantial bid for the England international, only for it to be swiftly rejected by Borussia Dortmund.
The report claims: “Borussia Dortmund have rejected Manchester United’s opening offer of €98m (£89m) for winger Jadon Sancho, according to a report in Germany.
“The Englishman is United’s top target for the summer, but the coronavirus outbreak has left United hesitant to spend too heavily on any one player as they eye a handful of new signings this summer.
“Now that United have sealed qualification for the Champions League, they are confident they can afford a deal and have therefore sent Dortmund an offer of €98m, but Bild state that it was quickly knocked back.
“Sporting director Michael Zorc is adamant there should be no discount on the €120m (£109m) asking price this summer, but he is at least satisfied to see United show a concrete interest in getting a deal done.”
Can Man United sign Jadon Sancho?
Mixed reactions are coming after the rejection of the first bid but we are pretty confident that BVB will be forced to sell Jadon Sancho in the coming week.
Firstly, the player is eager to return to the Premier League next season and is ready to join Manchester United.
Secondly, it’s no joke that Man United are ready to spend £90 odd million despite most of the European clubs being under major financial crisis. So BVB will have to understand that if Solskjaer backs out of this deal, there aren’t too many clubs who will be able to spend so much money on Jadon Sancho this summer.
Either way, Dortmund will have to part ways with the 20-year-old in the coming months and we feel that the German outfit are looking to squeeze out as much money as possible from this deal.
