Borussia Dortmund’s transfer stance set to accelerate Jadon Sancho’s Man Utd arrival

Manchester United are still eager to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, having agreed personal terms with the English winger.

They’re still yet to make a formal bid, but the Bundesliga side’s stance on their transfer plans could accelerate the move.

The English winger has reportedly agreed personal terms with the Red Devils, having come close to a move last year.

However, last summer the two clubs failed to agree a deal, leading to a gentleman’s agreement between Sancho and Dortmund that he could leave in 2021 if an acceptable bid came in.

And now, it seems Dortmund could be ready to offload him sooner rather than later.

Reports from Germany suggest Dortmund will have to sell players before they can buy anyone.

Sancho is their most valuable asset, considering Dortmund’s stance that Erling Haaland won’t be sold until next year.

The Norwegian forward will likely only be sold for at least £140million, and his release clause of £68m will come into effect next year.

Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc recently confirmed that Sancho would be allowed to leave if a suitable offer came in, with reports suggesting a bid of £80m would be enough.
