Man City set to earn millions from Jadon Sancho to Manchester United transfer

Manchester City will pocket millions this summer if Manchester United complete their move to bring Jadon Sancho to the club from Borussia Dortmund.

A year after failing to agree a deal with the Bundesliga side, United are back at the front of the queue in the hunt for the England international.

Dortmund’s focus this summer is retaining the services of star striker Erling Haaland, so Sancho — who has two years remaining on his contract with the German side — could be sold in order to raise funds for the club’s own transfer activity.

United are in talks with Dortmund for a deal but a transfer is not yet viewed as close, MEN Sport understands, with the German side not publicly revealing their asking price.

Who should be Man City’s prime target this summer? Let us know in the comments below.

Sancho’s involvement with England at the European Championships, which begin on Friday, could also delay the deal. But a completed transfer is in a much more promising position a year ago.

City will be keeping a close eye on the developments themselves, as a sell-on fee inserted into the deal that saw Dortmund sign Sancho for £8m means they will pocket a percentage of his price this summer.

Pep Guardiola’s transfer kitty will be bolstered by 15 per cent of any sale above the fee they sold the England ace to Dortmund for in 2017.

Last summer, a £100m transfer would have seen City pocket a sum of £13.8m but Dortmund’s demands are expected to have reduced this summer.

A fee of around £81.5m is widely being touted for the 21-year-old and a sale of that figure would see City net just over £11m.

That would bring the total fee received for Sancho, including his previous sale, to a figure of around £19m and, crucially, would provide Guardiola with more money to work with this summer.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane is a player of interest to City, and one that would command a hefty price-tag, and the money received for Sancho could help the Premier League champions to match Daniel Levy’s demands.
