Borussia Dortmund are expecting Jadon Sancho to leave this summer after Manchester United’s failed attempts to get him last year.
That’s according to Sport 1, who say BVB chiefs Hans-Joachim Watzke and Michael Zorc are ‘firmly expecting’ the player to move somewhere else.
As you’ll well remember, Sancho was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United for the entirety of last summer, with it believed the 20-year-old was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s number one target.
However, the clubs failed to reach an agreement, with United ultimately refusing to match the Bundesliga side’s €120m asking price.
Sancho has struggled to replicate his best form since but continues to be linked with a switch to Old Trafford, with Manchester United still in need of a first-choice right-winger.
They continue to be linked with a move this summer, and it seems Dortmund have accepted Sancho will be leaving in some capacity.
They know they are unlikely to get their ‘desired’ €120m again and so, with losses caused by the Coronavirus a €100m, ‘would probably’ let the forward go for ‘less money’ this time around.
What that figure would be isn’t mentioned, nor is it explicitly stated that Manchester United will be able to get Sancho, but the suggestion is there.
Dortmund are certainly expecting him to leave at some point and their need for cash means United may be able to get their man for much less than what they were going to pay in the summer.
