Man Utd to present Jadon Sancho’s new candidacy as twist forces Dortmund to speak


Manchester United remain hopeful of signing Jadon Sancho next summer after reports in Spain claimed that a major factor had turned events in their favor.England striker Jadon Sancho was United’s main summer transfer target, but they failed to sign the 20-year-old.

It is understood that the Bundesliga squad were open to selling Sancho at the start of the summer, on their own terms.

Sporting director Michael Zorc has put forward his demands – a transfer fee of £ 108million and a deadline to close the deal on August 10.

United leader Ed Woodward, however, failed to meet the demands of the Germans and Once the deadline passed, their chances of signing Sancho evaporated.

Ultimately, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s claim that United were one of the most “financially well-off” clubs was not suitable for BVB leaders.

However, Spanish release Todofijaches is adamant that all is not lost for United.

They state that Sancho, although happy at Dortmund, has told the Bundesliga club that he ultimately wants to play for United.

As such, it would force the Bundesliga giants back to the negotiating table with United.

And while Dortmund are unlikely to give in to their asking price of € 120million, they are now okay with Sancho moving on.

Indeed, Todofijaches is convinced that a deal to bring Sancho to United could be reached before the European Championships. They even suggest that with negotiations set to resume in early 2021, a deal could be announced before the end of the January window.

This arrangement would see the clubs confirm the deal, but for Sancho, see the season at Westfalonstadion.

Norwegian expert Jan Aage Fjortoft is also adamant that Sancho and Erling Haaland could still be lured.

He says Dortmund’s status as an almost club could ultimately cause them to choose to move on. And winning just one major trophy this season could indeed convince them to stay.

“Viv Anderson told me, ‘but Jan, it’s pretty easy, young kids want to win trophies – that’s why they’re in the game,'” Fjortoft told ESPN.

“One day they will leave, now meet at the international break and they will say ‘you are a good team, you have good talent, how many trophies do you have?’

“I think that’s the danger with Dortmund. They have the best Norwegian, the best American, the two best English, although Sancho is not at the moment unfortunately.

“This is the main challenge for Dortmund. How long can they keep these young children without winning trophies? Culture must be built.

“It is also typical that Bayern [have] have this culture right now because they have this winning mindset.

Sancho reflects on declining form

Sancho, meanwhile, took issue with claims United’s interest saw their form at Dortmund drop.

The winger has yet to make his mark in the Bundesliga this season. He did, however, scores his first England goal in 14 months, beating the Republic of Ireland 3-0 in a friendly last week.

But the 20-year-old doesn’t believe lingering rumors about his future led to his slow start to the current campaign.

“No, I don’t think so,” he replied, when asked if the transfer speech had an impact.

“Every player has a little dip in their career and I feel like I’m going through that right now.

“That’s how I bounce back and I’m just happy to have managers who trust me.

“I’m just happy to start for England. Every time I play, I try to do my best. Fortunately, I reached the goal and I am happy to help the team again.
