Why United may not sign Sancho despite personal terms agreement

Jadon Sancho

The news have gone viral about Jadon Sancho’s personal terms agreement with English Premier League outfit Man United, and there is no doubt that it’s a major progress in the bid to snap him up.

Man United are keen on the England international winger who has proven his quality in the German Bundesliga with Dortmund.

The deal dragged with different speculations now there is a stand in the bid to land the star player as personal terms have been agreed upon.

However, the major bone of contention is yet to be settled and that remains the asking price of the 20-year-old.

Borussia Dortmund have slammed a £100 million price tag for the player which obviously, the Red Devils are unwilling to meet because they do not value him in that regard.

The Red Devils boss Ed Woodward had already made it known they are unwilling to pay more than £50 million for the youngster and that hasn’t changed.

This is the reason why a deal for Sancho might not be as close as it seems. Both clubs will now enter negotiations and that largely determines a deal for the youngster.

While Man United might be ready to shift ground from the £50 million they initially value the player, they will not be willing to pay £100 million.

Same applies to Dortmund who are interested in the sale of Sancho. They are willing to come down from the initial £100 million asking price but will not go as low as £50 million.
