Manchester United are still interested in making a deal for their no.1 summer target.
Sometimes it feels the story, which was destined to be the biggest saga in the ongoing summer transfer window, of Jadon Sancho moving to the northwest of England has the sense of perpetuity in it. Sometimes it looks as if it was never a story made for the United fans. And sometimes it seems the shadow of Jadon Sancho is so close to moving to the ‘Theater of Dreams’, but there is some invisible force that proves to be the hurdle.
One of the greatest modern poet, namely T.S. Elliot, in his poem ‘The Hollow Men’, has illustrated the vast yet particularly-unnoticeable contrast between having an idea and converting the idea into reality, the difference between an emotion and the outburst of the emotion. According to him, it’s all about the indecisive state of the modern human being. And in the footballing world, it is the ambivalent manner that creates a huge contrast between having a player in a club’s mind as a potential signing and acquiring his services by paying the asked fee.
Manchester United, at this moment, are seemingly dealing with that sort of indecisive manner — whether to pay or move out of a deal that would surely affect them in a market that has already been left exposed following the recent occurrences regarding COVID-19.

Since the day Manchester United secured their Champions League spot by beating Leicester City in the final day of Premeir League last season, Manchester United enthusiasts all around the world have been waiting for the good news to arrive. United’s social media platforms have been posting all sorts of stuff, including highlights of matches played ages ago, pictures new kits, players’ images in the training, but one update regarding the Sancho deal.
However, after a wait of around two or three weeks, we have finally got something that would definitely excite you as a Manchester United fan. As reported everywhere, Borussia Dortmund, Sancho’s current club, want a humongous fee of €120m (£108million) from Manchester United in order to let the Englishman leave in the summer transfer window.
While it is almost certain that Manchester United have not made any official bid yet, a theory has emerged regarding why United, who possess the ability to capture Sancho easily, are taking too long to submit a bid.
The so-called transfer expert Duncan Castles, speaking to The Transfer Window Podcast, has revealed that Manchester United are hopeful of striking a deal for the winger this summer and there is mutual understanding between the Mancunian club and the likes of Jadon Sancho and Borussia Dortmund.
It has also been revealed that the agent and the family members of Sancho have told United to delay the deal as they have been believingly “waiting to collect bonuses from Borussia Dortmund (based on completing a year of a new contract and England caps).”
Fabrizio Romano, a reputed Italy-based transfer expert, in his recently-launched podcast named “Here We Go Podcast”, has clarified that Jadon Sancho is “buzzing” to join Manchester United but won’t force a move out of the club as he would happily stay put at the German club for another year at least.
These are big updates in the story that was at a standstill with no substantial developments. In conclusion, we must consider that the ball is in the court of Manchester United. If they pay the amount Dortmund want, the player will be at Old Trafford before the end of the summer transfer window, representing the glittering red shirt of Manchester. If not, then it would be another fascinating end to the tale.
