Transfer News: Manchester United make breakthrough in Jadon Sancho negotiations
Manchester United have made a breakthrough in their efforts to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, Dharmesh Sheth told The Transfer Show.
United are not giving up on trying to sign Sancho – who is valued at £108m – despite Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc insisting the 20-year-old winger will not be sold in this window.
However, despite the Bundesliga club’s stance, during the last 24 hours progress has been made between United and Sancho’s representatives on the issues of agent fees and personal terms.
“I’ve been speaking to somebody close to a potential deal involving Jadon Sancho to Manchester United and in the past 24 hours there have been developments and potentially good news for Manchester United fans, because the issues of agent fees and personal terms, I’ve been told, are no longer a problem,” Sky Sports News reporter Sheth said.
“Manchester United are remaining tight-lipped on these developments but it’s clear that some good progress has been made on overcoming the problems of agent fees and wages.
“We understand that United remain very resolute and determined to not overpay for a player given the realities of the coronavirus pandemic, but given that this was the issue for the past two or three weeks that Manchester United weren’t making a bid because they needed to sort out agent fees and personal terms for Jadon Sancho, this appears to be some sort of a breakthrough.
“It’s our understanding now that the agent fees and the personal terms are not going to be a problem anymore.”
