Manchester United confident of Jadon Sancho deal as Jack Grealish interest cools

Manchester United are growing increasingly confident a deal can be done with Borussia Dortmund for the transfer of Jadon Sancho after cooling interest in Jack Grealish.

Discussions for Sancho centre around the transfer fee and structure of payments. It is understood personal terms will not be an issue.

Dortmund are holding out for €120m (£109m) for the 20-year-old England international winger but United are unwilling to go that high given the financial hit that they, and many others, have taken during the pandemic.

The German club also want in the region of €100m (£90.5m) as an immediate payment and for the deal to be resolved by the time their pre-season training camp in the Swiss spa town of Bad Ragaz begins on August 10.

That is to give them time to find a replacement, and Dortmund are interested in Lille forward Jonathan Ikone as potential replacement for Sancho, with the French club valuing him at €50m (£45.25m).

Jadon Sancho excels in a raft of stats, even compared with players of a similar position across Europe’s top five leagues

There has been no bid from United as yet, but they are the only club to have made official contact with Dortmund.

Sancho’s contract runs out in 2022 and Dortmund are relaxed about his situation.

If they do not get what they feel he is worth, they will keep him and happily wait until next summer to sell – albeit for a lower price.
