Sancho transfer to United may be off – for now

Jadon Sancho’s move to Manchester United this summer may be off – for now.

United have been heavily linked with a move for the England winger, and have been working for months on a deal to bring him to Old Trafford.

However, they could now be priced out of a deal for him in the short-term at least, because of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and the resultant shutdown of football on the club’s finances, with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward already publicly warning that huge transfers will not be happening this year.

Dortmund are holding out for over £100 million for Sancho and are financially stable enough not to have to sell him in a cut-price deal to raise funds.  They would be happy to keep him for a further year knowing that they could still sell him for a substantial profit in a year’s time, when hopefully the market will have picked up again.
