Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho has been named in Gareth Southgate’s provisional squad of 33 players for the Euros. He is also likely to be a part of the main squad as well. However, his future at the German club is up for debate with Manchester United being linked with a move for him.
The Englishman is not keen to enter the Euros if his future is not sorted. The Euros 2021 is a big tournament and Sancho is keen to play well and perform for his country. He wants his full focus on the tournament rather than his future at Borussia Dortmund.
Borussia Dortmund to lower their price for Sancho
It looks like the BVB are also willing to help the Englishman to sort his future. According to SportsBild Borussia Dortmund will accept a bid of £82m for the winger. Manchester United has tried to sign him for a long time. Last season as well they made several attempts but BVB refused to lower their price for him.
Borussia Dortmund was demanding around £108 million for his last season. The Red Devils argued that his price should be lower due to the pandemic. However, now the German club is willing to lower their price and the Red Devils feel that they can get him this summer.
Tussle between Jadon Sancho and Borussia Dortmund
The former Manchester City winger wants to sort his future before going to the Euros 2021. He wants clarity as to where he will be playing football next season before heading for the tournament.
However, Borussia Dortmund wants to talk about his future when returns from the tournament. Thus for the time being there is this tussle between the player and the club as to when talks about his future will commence with Manchester United interested in him.
Gentlemen’s promise that could help Manchester United
Though it may be unclear as to when talks about his future will commence but the Englishman will have something going his way this summer. The report from Bild also states that Sancho has a gentlemen’s promise to leave the club.
Borussia Dortmund’s sporting director Michael Zorc has himself confirmed this news. He said, “We already had a gentlemen’s agreement with Jadon last year that he can switch under certain conditions”. However, he also specified that no such agreement exists with Erling Haaland who has been linked to Manchester United.
Competition for Manchester United
Alongside Manchester United, Chelsea are also said to be interested in the winger. The Blue’s new boss Thomas Tuchel is said to be a keen admirer of the player. Even in the past, Sancho has revealed that he is a Blues fan, as he was born in London.
Chelsea’s winger Callum Hudson Odoi has also been linked with a move to Borussia Dortmund. The BVB are said to be keen on him as they view him as a replacement for Sancho. Thus Manchester United needs to get this deal done quickly because last summer, Chelsea showed that they can get many deals done in a short amount of time.
12th Man Opinion
Manchester United fans are desperate to see Sancho be a Red Devil. They thought it would happen last summer but ultimately Borussia Dortmund did not bulge. However, they are more optimistic this time. While for BVB fans, they know that the Englishman will leave the club but they would just hope that he stays at Borussia Dortmund.
