Jadon Sancho to Manchester United is already turning into something of a saga.
There were claims of a move ahead of the last summer transfer window, although it was made clear a transfer would be much likelier this time around.
For months the German and English sport media have been talking up the prospect, and whilst there’s been weak links with other clubs, it’s always felt like Manchester United are the most interested.
Several messages have been coming from Germany in recent weeks. There’s been the near traditional character assassination starting on the England international, and claims that Dortmund won’t drop their asking price.
That asking price has been put at various levels including €100m, €130m and even €150m.
On Monday, Kicker make it clear there’s been no offer yet, from anyone. There hasn’t even been a ‘letter of intent’, which presumably is a way to make transfer interest official.
Dortmund’s Sebastian Kehl is quoted as saying that, as it stands, there’s an assumption Sancho will remain with the Bundesliga club for next season.
Bild’s Christian Falk has today also given his view, albeit brief, stating there’s still been no official offer.
