Manchester United continue to be linked with Jadon Sancho less than a week after the winter market closed on Monday.
The Borussia Dortmund star has been a long-term target of the Old Trafford club.
Three days ago, SportBild reported BVB are ready to sell the 20-year-old to the Red Devils if they receive a €100m offer. If it happens, it would cover their €75m losses due to Covid-19.
Sport1 now claims the Bundesliga side’s bosses assume the England international ‘will leave’ after this season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side get a mention and it’s explained the Manchester club are now keen on signing the attacker.
United wanted to sign the player last summer, but the deal never materialised because the English club decided not to meet Dortmund’s €120m valuation.
It’s claimed the German side will not receive a similar fee in the next window and it’s also added they ‘would be satisfied with less’ money. However, no figures are mentioned.
BVB’s need to sell Sancho or any of their other stars will further increase if they fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
Without Champions League football, Dortmund ‘would be missing TV and sponsorship income of €40m’.
Dortmund’s poor financial condition will come as welcome boost for Manchester United in their chase to sign Sancho in the summer.
