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.

Man United have stalled on the deal for England international Jadon Sancho as they are yet to agree on a fee with Borussia Dortmund despite claims that personal terms have been agreed with the player.

The Bundesliga club is requesting for a fee of £100 million for the 20-year-old and is unwilling to shift grounds while Man United are not willing to pay such a fee. They have valued Jadon Sancho for £50 million.

It is now looking unlikely for a deal to pull through with the Red Devils obviously growing frustrated on the possibility. They have been advised by former player and Sky Sports pundit, Gary Neville to move on.

According to Gary Neville, the Red Devils should move on and make a move for Watford star Ismaila Sarr, describing him as a “big, big talent” who can give to the Red Devils the same quality as Jadon Sancho.

The former Man United player took a clue from Watford’s 3-1 defeat to West Ham, noting that Ismaila Sarr was very impressive in the game and is the winger his former side needs.

Gary Neville stressed that the performance of Ismaila Sarr, even before the game was shining light, noting that he has impressed and proven his quality in the English Premier League.

Both clubs are still on the negotiation table as a fee is yet to be agreed upon. The Bundesliga outfit are requesting a fee of £100 million but for the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic, the Red Devils are only willing to pay the sum of £50 million for the star player.

Meanwhile, the focus of the Red Devils team is to seal qualification to the Champions League next season.

If emerging reports are to be believed German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund are now waiting for English Premier League club Man United to come with a bid for Jadon Sancho.

It is claimed that the German club is expecting a bid of £109 million for the England international but the Red Devils seem to be holding back and not ready to step forward.

The report claims that Man United are waiting to be sure of a Champions League spot before stepping forward with a bid. They are currently fifth on the EPL table with few games left to the end of the season.

Now that Man City have been cleared to play in the Champions League, the Red Devils will have to finish fourth or third to qualify as they face competition from Leicester City and Chelsea.

This development means that there could be a new turn in the bid for Borussia Dortmund winger if the Red Devils fail to book a space in next season’s Champions League despite being their top target for the summer transfer window.

Man United will face another test later on Thursday when they travel to face Crystal Palace in another Premier League fixture to determine their fate for a dream finish.

Jadon Sancho

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.

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.

EPL: Liverpool To Complete Jadon Sancho’s Transfer Ahead Of Man Utd On One Condition

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.
