Borussia Dortmund are ready to let go of one of Manchester United’s most sought-after targets and have reduced their asking price as well.
Fans must have been bitterly disappointed after it came to light that Manchester United had failed to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund despite keeping tabs on him and having countless meetings with his entourage over a potential summer move.
The hurdle, as reports from various sources claimed, was the Bundesliga side’s asking price of €120 million for the youngster. Considering the fact that Sancho’s contract is going to expire in June 2023 and they believed that United were in dire need of a right-winger in the summer, it might have been a fair demand on their part.
The Red Devils remained resolute on their stance and understandably submitted a last-ditch bid of €90 million to engineer a late move. But it got rejected right away by the Bundesliga giants.

Will Manchester United go after Sancho again?
According to the German outlet SportBILD (via Sport Witness), Dortmund are now willing to let Sancho leave for around €100 million in the upcoming summer transfer window. Amidst the pandemic, the Bundesliga side have found themselves struggling financially. Therefore, the reported €100 million transfer fee would help them take care of those issues.
The story believes United would go again for Sancho next summer in spite of making moves for Amad Diallo and Facundo Pellistri last term.
The Athletic claimed that Sancho was ready to move to Old Trafford but at the end of the day, the 20-year-old had to stay put at Westfalenstadion. And that collapsed move totally reflected upon his initial performances in the 2020-21 season.
However, the winger has lately gathered up the pace, having amassed three goals and four assists in six matches since the turn of the year.
Manchester United, on the other hand, have had also endured the ominous wave of the financial turmoil in the middle of the pandemic. It would be intriguing to see whether they try to go after the English youngster once again next summer.
