Manchester United ready to meet £100m price tag of transfer target

Manchester United ready to meet £100m price tag of transfer target

The Red Devils have struggled for pace on the right flank this season with neither Jesse Lingard nor Juan Mata providing the necessary speed to trouble the opposition’s full-backs.

Manchester United are ready to meet the £100m price tag of long term transfer target Jadon Sancho, as per the Daily Mirror.

Sancho, 19, has been the subject of transfer interest from Manchester United, and it now seems that the club is ready to pay Borussia Dortmund whatever it would take to land the England international.

Provided the deal does go through, it would be an excellent piece of business for a Dortmund side which snapped up the young winger from Man City for only £8m in the summer of 2017.

His potential arrival at Old Trafford would spell trouble for the likes of Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata, as the duo both takes turns playing on the right-wing role which is also the position in which Sancho likes to play.Even though Sancho signed a new 190,000-a-week contract with Dortmund back in August, the Bundesliga outfit are prepared to listen to offers for him.

Dortmund are adamant that for any club to secure the services of the speedy English winger, they’d have to meet their £100m valuation of the player.

Their stance seems in line with the previous transfer dealings which Dortmund has carried out over the years for players that it developed at the Signal Iduna Park.

Ousmane Dembele is one such example of a player whom Dortmund signed for only €12m in the summer of 2016 before the club solid him to FC Barcelona in the following summer in a massive €125m deal.

Therefore, given their history of selling hot prospects, one can understand Dortmund’s stance of allowing Sancho to leave provided a suitable offer arrives through their doors.Despite being only 19 years of age, Jadon Sancho has become a household name in Europe after the brilliant 2018/19 season he had with Borussia Dortmund.

The young English winger scored 13 and assisted another 14 goals to his teammates in his 43 appearances in all competitions last term.

Sancho has started the 2019/20 campaign in equally fine form. In the first nine games of the Bundesliga season, he has scored 3 and assisted five goals, helping his club get within three points of leaders Borussia Monchengladbach.

His brilliant performances for the Bundesliga outfit haven’t gone unnoticed, with the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid both reportedly interested in securing his signature.

However, given the reports that United have agreed to pay Borussia Dortmund the valuation they set on the player, it seems that the Red Devils look the most likely to close the deal for Sancho next summer.
