Despite complications, United still favourites for £170,000-a-week star


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.
