Dortmund willing to pay £35m for Manchester United’s Sancho but his salary emerges as the biggest sticking point

Borussia Dortmund are reportedly willing to offer £35 million to make Jadon Sancho’s loan move permanent this summer. 

The 23-year-old endured a difficult start to life back in Germany, failing to score in his first seven Bundesliga appearances. 

He broke his scoring duck with a stunning goal against Werder Bremen before getting on the scoresheet in Dortmund’s 2-0 win over PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League. 

The German giants are impressed with his performances and want to make the winger’s loan move permanent.

The Bundesliga giants had already expressed interest in signing Sancho this summer, but his £250,000 per week, could be an issue.

Florian Plettenberg has revealed that more talks are scheduled between the two clubs in the next few weeks to iron out a deal.

The 23-year-old doesn’t want to return to Old Trafford unless manager Erik ten Hag is sacked.

However, the Dutch boss could survive beyond the current campaign if he guides United to success in the FA Cup. 

His side pulled off a stunning 4-3 victory over Liverpool on Sunday, and they will now play Coventry City in the semi-final next month. 

Beating the Championship outfit should be easy, but United will face stiff competition from Manchester City or Chelsea at Wembley Stadium if they reach the final.
