Journalist Fabrizio Romano has offered an update on Manchester United and their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.
The Red Devils’ season is now officially over following their defeat to Villarreal in the Europa League final, which means that they can finally put all of their attention on what the team is going to look like next season and who they can bring in.
Speaking on the Here We Go podcast, Romano said there have been some discussions held about signing him now that the German side have revealed their asking price, but that an official bid is yet to come in:
“Keep an eye always on the Jadon Sancho situation, because the price is confirmed so a bit less than €100m – around €90m-€95m for Jadon Sancho – but at the moment, Manchester United have not done an official bid yet.
“So they are interested? Yes. In touch with people around Sancho? Yes. But no official bid.”
TIF Thoughts on Fabrizio Romano’s comments about Jadon Sancho…
Will United sign Sancho this summer?
With 50 goals and 64 assists for Dortmund since making his debut in 2017, it’s easy to see why Manchester United would be interested in him as they look to continue their progress under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and mount a serious challenge to Manchester City in the Premier League as well as on the continent after being knocked out of the Champions League in the group stages this season.
The only issue now is raising the money in order to make it happen, something that we have seen the Glazers do in the past if they want to get their man, but whether or not they’ll be able to do so this season given the financial strains on the club, we’ll just have to wait and see.
