A Jadon Sancho transfer has definitely been our most-covered story as we approach the business end of the 2019/20 term. Over the last 24 hours, we’ve been given another update in that regard.
The story comes from Bild journalist Christian Falk, who took to Twitter yesterday to offer the latest.
Apparently, Borussia Dortmund is ‘expecting’ a £109 (€120m) offer from United for their star, however, they add a rather large caveat. That bid will only arrive if United qualify for next season’s Champions League…
As you’d expect, the premiere players want to be showcasing their talents in the biggest competitions. Sancho is seemingly no different.
It also could relate to United’s financial situation. After all, the Champions League is far more lucrative than the Europa League. Qualification would offer the 20-time Premier League champions more money to spend going into an all-important summer transfer window.
At this stage, it’s not clear as to which side the Champions League requirement is coming from.
My main concern comes in regards to the fee. During this global pandemic, I just don’t see United spending a British transfer record amount when money is tight. Not only would it not give off the right impression amongst the general public, but I’m also not quite sure it’s even possible…
Sancho’s brilliance would be perfect for United – or anywhere for that matter…
Look, you don’t need me to sit here and wax lyrical about Sancho’s talents. We’ve been on this bandwagon day-in-day-out for at least the last few months, offering small-but-significant snippets of information from different media sources.
I’ll just put it like this. Sancho fits the player-profile that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has shown an obvious preference towards; young and homegrown.
He’s twenty with the world at his feet. In the 2019/20 term, Sancho scored twenty goals and assisted seventeen. Those are statistics most players can only dream about. Who wouldn’t want to add those numbers to an ever-improving United front line?
