Manchester United slap £40 million price tag on Jadon Sancho

Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho is reportedly expected to leave the club on a permanent transfer this summer.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United have now slapped a £40 million price tag on Jadon Sancho. The 24-year-old rejoined his former club Borussia Dortmund on loan for the second half of last season, and he was outstanding for them.

The Englishman helped Borussia Dortmund reach the final of the UEFA Champions League, and he put in consistent performances in the Bundesliga as well. Sancho is expected to leave Manchester United permanently, and it will be interesting to see where he ends up.

Dortmund are keen on signing the player permanently, but it remains to be seen whether they are ready to pay £40 million. The Bundesliga club do not have the financial might of the elite clubs, and they will be hoping to sign the England international for a more reasonable price.

Manchester United need to cut their losses on Sancho now

Manchester United paid £73 million for Sancho when they signed him from Germany, and it seems that they are now prepared to incur a heavy loss on him by selling him for £40 million.

The transfer has clearly not worked out for either party, and it makes sense for them to go their separate ways. Manchester United need attacking reinforcements, and they will be able to use the proceeds from Sancho’s departure to sign quality players. Manchester United must improve their squad this summer if they want to push for trophies next season.

They cannot afford to spend freely because of the financial regulations. So, they must look to raise some funds through sales as well. The 24-year-old England international certainly has the quality to justify the £40 million price tag, but it remains to be seen whether Dortmund can afford him.

He has the quality to compete at the highest level, and it will be interesting to see if other big clubs are keen on securing his signature. Manchester United will hope to finalise his departure soon. The playmaker has fallen out of favour with manager Erik ten Hag, and a return to Old Trafford will not be ideal for him. He will look to end his Manchester United nightmare permanently as well.
