DORTMUND READY TO SELL SANCHO AS MAN UTD PRESS CLAIMS
Manchester United have advanced in their pursuit of £100m-rated Jadon Sancho and could now sign the teenage winger next summer, according to reports on Saturday.
According to the Daily Mail, Borussia Dortmund have decided to sell the England attacker next summer and are already scouring the market for a potential replacement.
It’s claimed the Bundesliga giants have accepted this will be Sancho’s last season at the club, with a return to the Premier League on the cards for the exciting youngster.
As per the report, BVB want to cash in during summer 2020, as by then Sancho will have just two years remaining on his deal and Dortmund do not want to see his market value dwindle.
