Borussia Dortmund have aired some negative comments surrounding their highly sought after young superstar.
Jadon Sancho has commanded global attention after dominating the Bundesliga this season. Premier League giants Liverpool and Chelsea have both been heavily linked to a move for the winger, but no interest has been as strong as Manchester United’s.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is very keen on signing the 20-year-old this summer and talks continue to swirl around a potential deal. The club may have now been handed a boost in their mission to sign Sancho, after Dortmund have been critical of him.
Will Jadon Sancho become a Manchester United player?
According to The Mirror, BVB sporting director Michael Zorc has said it’s sometimes ‘not easy’ to deal with the the forward. Sancho was recently fined $10,000 (£7,782) for breaking lockdown regulations and inviting a hairdresser into his home.
This didn’t go down well with the Englishman, who reportedly lashed out at the German league’s decision to punish him. Dortmund teammate Emre Can hit back by telling Sancho to ‘grow up’ (via Mirror).
Sancho’s current asking price is in excess of £100 million, but if the club are losing their patience with him, they could consider letting him leave this summer for a cut price.
The winger has lit up the Bundesliga this season, tallying a fiery 17 goals and 17 assists so far (via Transfermarkt). Sancho is currently third in the German top flight’s list of scorers, behind only Timo Werner and Robert Lewandowski (via BBC Sport).
Dortmund have been firm on their asking price for their top scorer so far, but after these comments have come to light, could a new fee be offered to interested parties?
Man United look to be the favourites to sign Sancho, but given the current climate, £100m or more is a hefty amount to pay for just one player. However, if Dortmund decide to slash their asking price in order to get the England international off their books, the Reds could be in with an even better chance of getting their man.
