Jadon Sancho: Manchester United have £67m bid for Borussia Dortmund winger rejected

Jadon Sancho in action for Borussia DortmundJadon Sancho joined Borussia Dortmund from Manchester City in the summer of 2017

Manchester United have had a £67m bid for England winger Jadon Sancho turned down by Borussia Dortmund.

The German club want about £77.5m for the 21-year-old, with an additional £4.25m bonus payment on top.

BBC Sport also understands that in addition to the fee not being high enough, United wanted to pay it over five years when Dortmund are only willing for it to extend to four.

United are now considering whether to revise their offer.

The Old Trafford club will be keen to avoid a repeat of 12 months ago, when they were given a fee by Dortmund for Sancho, then tried to reduce it believing the Bundesliga side would eventually sell for a lower price.

In the end, Dortmund refused to budge and Sancho remained where he was.

Dortmund have a gentleman's agreement with Sancho that they will allow him to leave the club if someone reaches their valuation before a certain point in the summer, which is likely to coincide with his expected return date from England duty at the European Championship.

Among their major young stars, including Erling Braut Haaland and Jude Bellingham, Sancho is the only one Dortmund are interested in selling this summer.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be keen to get the deal done, and has identified a right-sided attacking player as one of his priorities.

He feels there is not enough competition for places in that area of the field, a situation underlined by the fact he failed to make a substitution until extra time despite his side struggling in the Europa League final against Villarreal, which they eventually lost on penalties.

Crazy to pay that much for a player in this market. Barcelona and Madrid finances can attest to that.60More replies (1)downA

17:38He’s decent but £67m is a bit more than he’s worth in my view. I’m sure we could spend that sort of money better elsewhere.153C

17:39Continuation of United’s awful transfer strategies. Dortmund have given the price again and United are playing cheapskates. Tried to do same with Fernandes. Eventually paid what was wanted and was money well spent. Either you want the player or not. Liverpool wanted Van Dijk, paid the fee to get him and won the title…165A

17:31Now they’ll end up paying 80million which is far too much with half the price being because he’s a english player in a foreign league.134A

17:48Surprised by this? No.
Start of with an insulting bid and then on the final transfer day they’ll pay £110M for Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
They do good business there in Salford.82M

17:51Not the type of player that Man U should be after anyway. Centre-back and someone to partner McTominay should be the goal.

Sancho is a good young player though £80m in a pandemic world that has badly dented revenues seems a bit rich. Then again the Glazers have had their snouts in the trough for years and it is peanuts to what they have cost the club.30D

17:47Not worth nearly 80 million. Does he bring that much more to the table than an inform Lingard would!? Hes definately an upgrade but not an 80million upgrade.

If they don’t budge on the valuation, I’d bring Lingard back and spend it on getting Varane, Trippier and Saul through the door.63F
