EPL: Those prolonging Sancho’s Man United deal exposed


Man United have continued to trail the signature of England international winger Jadon Sancho from German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund and are yet to make any headway.

Both teams have been on the negotiation table and that has been ongoing for the past weeks, yet there is no breakthrough for the Red Devils as the asking price of £100 million can not be met.

However, it is claimed there are a lot of barriers in the deal despite the fact that all parties involved want a deal to happen because of the huge fee involved.

Man United are reportedly surprised when told to negotiate a deal for Jadon Sancho through his agent, Emeka Obasi. Also, Dortmund have also involved Marco Lichtsteiner as an intermediary in the deal which makes it more complicated.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils have a deadline of August 10 to complete the deal and are very positive that they will do so even after the expiration of the deadline as they are committed to having him at the club.

However, United will continue talks with both agents and intermediary to ensure Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s primary target is at the Old Trafford in the coming season as the England international is also interested in the move.
