With Man United move for Jadon Sancho expected in the coming summer transfer window, German Bundesliga outfit are already making moves to have him replaced.

Dortmund Sporting Director Michael Zorc has told KICKER that the club is opened to a deal for the England international winger and have started preparing for life after him by considering other options as his replacement.

He made it clear that they are already considering a number of options in case the star player leaves as negotiations are still ongoing.

Man United are keen on the 20-year-old and are still on the negotiation table for his fee, having reportedly agreed on personal terms with the player in principle.

The German Bundesliga outfit are requesting a £100 million for the star player and that turns out to be an impossible fee for the Red Devils who have not valued the England international for such an amount.

Man United are only willing to pay £50 million for the 20-year-old which has not been accepted by Borussia Dortmund, making a deal far from being reached.

Jadon Sancho is one of the youngest prospects the world can boast of at the moment. He has enjoyed a blistering form with the Bundesliga outfit this season.

From every indication, Man United are still favourites to snap up the signature of England international Jadon Sancho from Bundesliga outfit Dortmund.

There have been complications over the possible deal despite Man United’s strong interest as Dortmund valued the youngster for over £100 million.

This has discouraged the Red Devils and the club chief, Ed Woodward has come clean to state that they are not willing to pay more than £50 million for the star player.

It is also reported that the Red Devils are already considering the signature of Chelsea winger Willian as a replacement as he is billed to leave the Stamford Bridge this summer after failing to agree to a new contract.

However, reports still claim that Man United remain favourites to land Jadon Sancho if a deal is to happen for the player as there is no strong contender with real interest as Man United.

It is therefore expected that the Bundesliga outfit will lower their fee for the player as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, to help cushion the effect on their finance.

The young lad will also prefer a return to his country home ahead of any destination if he is to leave Germany this summer window.

It is no longer news that Man United are interested in the signature of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho and are ready to make a bid for him.

The hindrance to a possible deal has been the price tag on the England international which the Red Devils are not willing to meet.

With an agreement not seeming possible between both clubs, it is claimed that United chief Ed Woodward is already making up his mind has pronounced a judgement on the matter.

According to The Express, the Man United chief is not willing to pay more than £50 million for the 20-year-old and already considering to forget a deal for him.

It is claimed that Chelsea and Brazilian International Willian has been fingered as an alternative to Jadon Sancho and could even be cheaper.

The Brazilian international is set to leave Chelsea and Man United could attempt to snap him up.

Chelsea are willing to keep the star winger but his request for a 3 years contract extension has been blatantly turned down for age factor.

However, owing to his quality, he could be of good help to the Red Devils for a few years and that is heavily been considered by Ed Woodward, according to reports.

Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly in pole position to sign Jadon Sancho according to a recent report from Sky Sports and this was corroborated by journalist Duncan Castles on the Transfer Window Podcast.

Borussia Dortmund are almost resigned to losing Jadon Sancho in the summer with the player keen to return to the Premier League after three years in the German Bundesliga.

The 19-year-old left the Premier League in 2017 after being starved of first team football at Manchester City.

Sancho signed for Borussia Dortmund during that summer but didn’t become a regular in the starting XI until last season when he almost led his team to the German Bundesliga title.

Borussia Dortmund missed out on a first league title since 2012 after they were piped by rivals Bayern Munich. The Bavarian giants have won the league title in each of the last seven seasons in the German top flight.

Manchester United tried to sign Jadon Sancho last summer after making him their number one transfer target but they were unable to get their man with Borussia Dortmund blocking the possibility of him moving away from the club.

His sensational form has continued into this season and the interest of the Red Devils in him is still intact though they have to battle the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea who are also interested.

Jadon Sancho showed his quality during the Champions League first knockout clash with Paris Saint Germain (PSG) which Borussia Dortmund won 2-1 at home during their first leg clash.

Borussia Dortmund and PSG meet for the second leg next month.

Chelsea see Jadon Sancho as the man to replace former talisman Eden Hazard who has joined Real Madrid. The Blues wanted to sign him last month but the winger was not available.

Premier League table toppers Liverpool are also in the mix.

Reigning European champions Liverpool have been tipped to sign highly rated Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho ahead of arch-rivals Manchester United on one condition.

Liverpool and Manchester United are the top two clubs in success terms in English football and they enjoy a rivalry that has lasted for several decades.

During the latest episode of The Agenda, journalist Caoimhe O’Neill tipped Liverpool to beat their rivals to the signing of Jadon Sancho this summer before adding that it would only be possible on one condition.

According to her, Liverpool will have to sell one of their front three to accommodate the arrival of England international Jadon Sancho.

Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino are members of the famed Liverpool front trio and they have all been instrumental to their successes in the last eight months.

Liverpool have won the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup titles within that time and the three front players were instrumental to those achievements.

The signing of a quality player like Jadon Sancho is tempting especially with age on his side. The 19-year-old has been in devastating form for his German team in the last two years.

He has 16 goals and 18 assists in 31 games in all competitions. His attacking stats can’t be matched by any of the Liverpool front three but their synergy can’t be overemphasized and that has been key to the aforementioned Liverpool achievements.

Manchester United wanted to sign Jadon Sancho last summer but Borussia Dortmund were keen on keeping him for this season. The teenage attacker could leave this summer and a transfer fee of £100m plus would be required to secure his signing.

Apart from Liverpool and Manchester United, Chelsea are also in the running to sign him as they try to sign a replacement for Real Madrid signing Eden Hazard.

Manchester United are determined to beat Premier League rivals, Chelsea, to the signing of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

According to the Daily Mirror, Manchester United and Chelsea are the only two clubs in the mix for the player.

Borussia Dortmund are resigned to losing his services this summer but they are determined to get a lot of money for the £120m-rated England international.

The 19-year-old is one of the best young players in European football.

His status was elevated at Borussia Dortmund whom he joined from Premier League giants Manchester City in the summer of 2017.

Manchester United wanted to sign Jadon Sancho last season but his German club were adamant that the winger won’t leave.

The Red Devils have not had an exciting winger like Jadon Sancho since the Sir Alex Ferguson era ended in 2013 and they have to fight off Chelsea to sign him.

Sancho could be the man to replace Real Madrid new recruit Eden Hazard at Chelsea after the Belgian international left the Blues for the Spanish capital at the start of the season in a deal reported to be around £100m.

Eden Hazard has not been able to pull his weight at Real Madrid and that’s down to several injury setbacks. Jadon Sancho could be an able replacement for Hazard at Chelsea.

The Three Lions of England star recently became the youngest player to score 25 goals in the German Bundesliga.

Jadon Sancho has scored 12 goals and 13 assists in 19 league matches in the colours of Borussia Dortmund.

In all competitions, he has scored 15 goals in addition to 14 assists in 29 games.

Sancho made his England debut almost two years ago during the UEFA Nations League clash at the home of Croatia which ended in a goalless draw.

The young England winger has scored twice in 12 appearances for his country.
