The twists and turns of the Jadon Sancho transfer saga will probably continue as long as the summer transfer window has time on the clock. However, the latest developments suggest that the 20-year-old is set to leave the Westfalen.
As per the reports, Sancho’s mind is now made upon leaving the club that gave him his first taste of senior football. The magazine dedicated a two page spread to Sancho this week as they took the winger’s character and off the pitch behavior under the loop.
United’s interest was reiterated alongside Sancho’s “no secret” desire to return to England. However, United are also reportedly keen to try and negotiate Sancho’s price tag down as the €130m demanded by Dortmund is not very appealing, particularly under the current circumstances.
If Manchester United…
• Sign Jadon Sancho
• Sign Jude Bellingham
• Extend Paul Pogba's contract
• Sign Grealish, VDB or Havertz
… it'll be a huge step forward in terms of our rebuild. pic.twitter.com/I8gW2vQL97

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has previously discussed the possibility of potentially exploiting the transfer market this summer due to the club’s financial capabilities in comparison to most others, and it seems like United will indeed try to play hardball with Dortmund before definitively pulling the trigger on any deal to bring Sancho to Old Trafford.
He has since become one of Europe’s hottest properties, already having made 91 appearances for Dortmund in all competitions. Sancho has also been a regular in the senior England squad since his first call-up in late 2018.
