Manchester United continue to be linked with Jadon Sancho, a year after they failed to take him away from Borussia Dortmund.
On Monday, Bild reported the Red Devils are warned because Chelsea are Liverpool are in the picture for signing the 21-year-old.
BVB sporting director Michael Zorc told Sport1 the attacker will be allowed to leave in the summer, if two conditions are met.
“This gentlemen’s agreement between Jadon and us existed – as you all know – last summer, and that has not changed. We have set certain conditions that would have to be met for Jadon to leave the club. The timing and the sum were and are the decisive parameters,” Zorc said.
According to Sport1, the deadline set to sanction Sancho’s sale would be until the end of July.
Regarding the fee, it’s claimed the Bundesliga side’s bosses are ready to allow the player to leave in the upcoming window for a fee between €85m and €90m.
Another report from Sport1 has seen German journalist Raphael Honigstein giving his take on where the England international could end up, if he leaves Dortmund.
“In my opinion, only two English clubs are eligible for a Sancho transfer: Chelsea and Manchester United. His ex-clubs ManCity and Liverpool, on the other hand, are not [eligible],” the journalist said.
Sancho has been a supporter of the west London club and this factor means Thomas Tuchel’s side should not be ruled out as a possible option for the player in the next market.
“A transfer to Chelsea would be possible, especially since there has been a basic sympathy for Sancho, who was a Chelsea fan as a young player,” Honigstein explained.
“Chelsea, however, currently have an oversupply of good offensive players. As of today, therefore, a Sancho transfer is not foreseeable.”
