Manchester United change Jadon Sancho asking price as contract clause triggered



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have seemingly changed their asking price for Jadon Sancho this summer as INEOS look to raise funds at Old Trafford.

Manchester United have reportedly set a new asking price for Jadon Sancho as the club prepares for potential bids this summer. The decision comes after a tumultuous season where Sancho’s relationship with manager Erik ten Hag deteriorated, leading to his exile from first-team activities.

Despite these issues, Sancho revived his form during a loan spell at Borussia Dortmund, helping them reach the Champions League final, which has earned United a further £4.3 million on top of the initial £3 million they received once the loan move materialised.

United are firm on their valuation, and according to The Sun are seeking to recoup 75% of the £73 million they paid for the winger three years ago. This places Sancho’s price tag at just under £55 million.

This is different from previous reports that United were looking in the region of £35-40 million, and it has no doubt come as a result of the feeling that his fantastic form for Borussia Dortmund has led to an increase in his valuation.

Borussia Dortmund are keen to keep him, but financial constraints could pose a challenge, especially considering Sancho’s substantial wages of nearly £300,000 per week. Any move would likely require Sancho to accept a significant pay cut.

Negotiations between Manchester United and Dortmund have historically been challenging, with past transfers involving Sancho highlighting the complexities. United’s resolve in this matter suggests they are not willing to negotiate down from their set price. The club view Sancho as a valuable asset, and despite the current circumstances, they recognise his potential resale value.

The future of Sancho at Old Trafford remains uncertain, contingent on multiple factors, including Ten Hag’s position at the club and whether other interested parties can meet United’s financial demands.

As the summer transfer window approaches, all eyes will be on how these negotiations unfold and whether Sancho’s tenure at United comes to an end, considering that Ten Hag may remain at the club beyond this summer.
