What fans are saying as Dortmund quote final Price to Manchester United for Jadon Sancho

Manchester United will not get Jadon Sancho in a cut-price deal from Borussia Dortmund despite the financial impact of Covid-19.


United have made the 20-year-old England forward one of their major targets when the transfer window opens on 27 July.


It was initially thought Dortmund, who are in the process of completing the signing of Jude Bellingham from Birmingham after the 17-year-old opted to sign for the Bundesliga side despite United's interest, wanted in excess of £100m for Sancho.


However, in April United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward said the Old Trafford club "were not immune" from the financial impact caused by matches having to be played behind closed doors and the rebates required to be paid back to broadcasters.


Although sources have rejected reports they had put a £50m ceiling on Sancho, Woodward's statement was taken to mean United would have less to spend on new players.


Reactions


@Stone

Borussia Dortmund not in mood to reduce price for Jadon Sancho. Have told @ManUtd valuation and to either pay it or not - 2 years left on contract. Utd not sure of budget due to ££ lost due to no fans in stadium, uncertainty over CL, inc Adidas clause. No £50m ceiling though.


@Truh

We are the 3rd richest club in the world, clubs with less money have already been spending, quit this bullsh1t


@Onome

Don't think Utd will officially make a move for him until CL places are confirmed. We get CL, that additional £25m comes in and then we go in. Expect deal to be concluded in the first week of Aug.


@Peter

At that price not worth it. We are always being pressurised. Go for someone else. Then see them reduce the price.


@Izzy

Hear me out:


Get Dembele from Barcelona on loan while we wait for Sancho deal to run down


Get a fast agressive CB Koulibaliy or konate


Get a defensive midfielder quick and can cover both pogba and Bruno


3 signings


Loan Dembele


Get konate or Koulibaliy


And


A DM


@Simon

Obviously both sides setting stall out and transfer window not even open yet. OGS wants Sancho though, so evidently intent on building on what he has created over last 12 months.


@kean

Would rather get Kulusevski, VdB, and Tonali for the same price


@sharma

It hasn't even been a year since Kulusevski joined Juve, while Tonali is keen on Inter and reportedly wants to stay in Italy. VdB is a very different profile than Sancho.


@Kola

Rather get Willian for free than spending 100m on Harvey
