€120m-rated winger could sign new contract amid Man United interest
Jadon Sancho is in line for a bumper pay rise if the Red Devils fail to agree on a deal to sign the forward before the deadline set by Borussia Dortmund.
England international stays the Norwegian manager’s primary transfer target as Ole looks to add even more flair and versatility to a forward line that already boasts Greenwood, Rashford and Martial. Bundesliga giants stay minded to keep their prize asset but will countenance a sale if Man United meets their £108m valuation.
The BVB does not want to become embroiled in a drawn-out saga, while Red Devils are also keen to formalise a swift resolution and avoid a repeat of last summer when Harry Maguire only joined a week before the start of the campaign, while they were forced to wait until winter to sign Bruno Fernandes.
Jadon already earns £190,000-a-week but Borussia Dortmund are willing, to up his salary significantly if Red Devils fail to act decisively. The pressure is on executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward to get a deal done, especially given the short turnaround time between the end of the current campaign and the start of the 2020/21 season.
Man United travel to Germany this week for the final stages of the UEL where they will enter an eight-team knockout tournament and are due to face FC Copenhagen in the quarter-finals.
‘Let’s see how long it lasts – hopefully, more than two days, hopefully up to 12 days,’ said the Norwegian manager after the midweek win over LASK. ‘We’re going to approach it one game at a time.’
