Manchester City reportedly stand to make €18 million if Borussia Dortmund sell Jadon Sancho to Manchester United this summer.
Jadon Sancho, who joined Borussia Dortmund from Manchester City in 2017 for a training compensation fee of 7.8 million euros, is being heavily linked with a move to Manchester United. Some reports claim that a deal is close to completion, while others say that talks haven’t even started between the two clubs.
But if the winger makes his return to England, Manchester City would receive 15% of the profit Dortmund make from his next move. Initially reported by the Times, and then confirmed by Kicker, Manchester City do indeed have a sell-on clause for Sancho.
It was also previously reported that Pep Guardiola’s side have a matching right, but they have no interest in signing Sancho, three years after he left the club in search of first team football.
With Borussia Dortmund demanding 120 million euros for the Englishman, Manchester City would get 18 million euros if Sancho joins their cross town rivals this summer.
It remains to be seen if Sancho will move to Manchester United, with the Premier League side baulking at the asking price set by Borussia Dortmund. The BVB bosses have made their position clear on numerous occasions, and want the 20 year old’s future to be sorted one way or another as soon as possible. Sancho still has two years remaining on his Borussia Dortmund contract, and the club are under no pressure to sell him this summer.
The Times also add that United haven’t yet agreed personal terms with Sancho, and are prepare to walk away from the deal if Borussia Dortmund do not lower their asking price.
