According to football outlet, ESPN, Manchester United have cooled off their interest in Borussia Dortmund winger, Jadon Sancho. ESPN believes it that the price of £80 million is the reason behind the ceasing of interest in the winger.
After a breakthrough campaign in Bundesliga, Jadon Sancho has emerged as the hottest prospect in the football. The player has 12 goals and 14 assists in Bundesliga 2018-19. Former Cityzens winger, Jadon Sancho has been pursued by the Red Devils for a long time as a solution for their right-wing issues. With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer planning to revamp the club, Manchester United considered the England international as a potential signing in the summer transfer window.
In March, Borussia Dortmund’s sporting director Michael Zorc stated that the right-winger is not for sale. Also,
“Jadon will play for Borussia Dortmund next season and we are definitely planning with him. I am far from putting a price tag on Jadon, but I maintain that his transfer would be hard to beat even for the biggest clubs in the world at the moment.”
To completely ward off the interest of Premier League giants, Borussia Dortmund has set a three-digit release clause on Jadon Sancho. The famous BBC journalist, David Ornstein, gave an opinion about the transfer. David opined that it is a 50-50 possibility of Sancho moving back to England.
