Manchester United had all summer to complete the transfer of Jadon Sancho, but he did not succeed. Despite everything, they hope to succeed in the last seven days of the transfer period ?! It's so similar to Ed Woodward and United's business on the football market in recent years… Although Borussia Dortmund proved to be solid as a wall in the negotiations on the sale of Sancho, and although it seemed that there was nothing from the transfer, they do not lose hope at Old Trafford that something will change in the next seven days.
They are ready for the last offensive on Sancho this summer. In recent days, United have progressed in negotiations with Sancho's agents about the terms of the contract and their commission, which is an important thing in the whole story.
There is a green light from the player and his representatives, but the agreement with Dortmund is still not in sight. Borussia's condition from the beginning of the negotiations was for Manchester to pay the price of 120,000,000 euros and to do that by August 10.
That was the deadline after which the Germans said that they would not negotiate anymore because they wanted to enter the season calmly and with the situation around Sancho resolved. They did not want to get into a situation of panicking chasing a replacement in the last days of the transfer window.
Especially since the player does not insist on a transfer and is not dissatisfied with Dortmund
Latest offer: 65 millions
Neither did United meet the time limit, nor does it intend to pay 120,000,000 euros. So how do they think to end this transfer? Woodward and his associates are convinced that Borussia will agree to a price correction, because Sancho will enter the last year of his contract next summer, and the price will certainly be lower.
The whole of Europe will know that Borussia must sell the Englishman and will deliberately lower its price. That is why United hopes that the Germans will not consciously enter into a financial loss and that they will now sell Sancho.
United's latest offer to Borussia is 65,000,000 pounds (72,000,000 euros) plus easily achievable bonuses with which the transfer can reach 90,000,000 pounds (100,000,000 euros). These are real bonuses for the number of games played, goals, assists, placements in the Champions League, and the like.
They believe that this is a correct offer that Dortmund will consider. If Borussia rejects this as well, United have several alternatives. From Milik from Napoli, through King from Bournemouth and Perišić from Inter to Douglas Costa from Juventus.
But all these are consolation prizes that will not satisfy the fans. Chelsea (Havertz, Chilwell, Ziyech, Werner,Thiago Silva), Liverpool (Alcantara, Jota, Cimikas), City (Ake, Dias, Torres…), and even Tottenham (Bale, Reguilon, Doherty, Hojbjerg) and Arsenal (Willian, Saliba, Gabriel) have strengthened well and are working on bringing in more valuable reinforcements, while United's transfer window has so far been reduced to the purchase of Donnie van de Beek.
And that's all.. Sad for one of the richest clubs in the world who cries out for a star and a player of the future like Sancho.
