Man Utd to secure transfer of Jadon Sancho after deadline extended, expert says


Manchester United will sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund this summer – and it’s a matter of when, rather than if a deal can be reached.That’s the verdict of an expert who claims fans can expect to hear a final decision on the summer’s biggest transfer saga around August 20.

United and Dortmund are believed to be somewhat separated in their respective assessments of the 20-year-old England star, with the Bundesliga club wanting over £ 100million while the Red Devils are only willing to pay around £ 80million. pound sterling.

Dortmund have reportedly given Sancho suitors the August 10 deadline to strike a deal for the winger, who is reportedly ready to move to Old Trafford.

But Bundesliga specialist and former Premier League forward Jan Aage Fjortoft has said the deadline will now be pushed back 10 days.

Fans can expect a decision on Jadon Sancho in around two weeks, according to Bundesliga expert Jan Aage Fjortoft.

Fjortoft took to Twitter to say that, according to the editor of a local newspaper in Dortmund, “it’s not a question of IF it will be sold. It’s a matter of WHEN, ”adding that he expected a decision within two weeks.

Fjortoft later retweeted a post from ‘The United Link’ which cited the example of Barcelona signing Ousmane Dembele from Dortmund in 2017 after an offer was rejected, saying: “The players always get their shot. ”

Sancho has become United’s main transfer target for the summer after playing for a second straight Bundesliga season, scoring 17 goals and getting 17 assists in 32 appearances.

However, former United manager Rene Meulensteen has urged the club’s executive vice-president Ed Woodward to oust Tottenham star Harry Kane rather than meet the huge price Dortmund are asking for Sancho.

Meulensteen said United’s most pressing need is a prolific center-forward, rather than creativity coming from further afield.

“They bring in Jadon Sancho, but more than anything I would have gone for a more prolific striker, someone like Harry Kane,” Meulensteen told talkSPORT.
