Man Utd set to accept huge loss to part ways with Jadon Sancho

Manchester United are set to accept a huge financial loss to part ways with Jadon Sancho during the summer transfer window, according to Bild.

The England international fell out-of-favour under manager Erik ten Hag in September last year following a public outburst after being dropped for the Arsenal game.

He was suspended from first-team duties as a result and was loaned out to Borussia Dortmund in January.

Sancho has started to revive his form with four goal contributions at the German club. There is a possibility that he could rejoin them permanently this year.

As per Bild, the Red Devils are prepared to cut their losses on the winger, who cost €85 million (£73m) in 2021.

They are ready to accept a significant loss of around €35-40m (£30-34m). This would fit into the transfer budget of Dortmund for the forthcoming transfer window.

United have reportedly signalled their interest in getting a deal done with the Bundesliga outfit. They are working out an arrangement for a ‘perfect transfer deal’.

United may need to hand Sancho a huge pay-off

Sancho publicly criticised the manager for lying after the Arsenal loss in September. There appears no way back for him in a United shirt even if Ten Hag leaves.

The club need to recoup funds from player sales before their spending spree. The 23-year-old has been earmarked as one of those who could head for the exit door.

Dortmund should have no problems in paying around €45m (£39m) for Sancho’s services, considering he has started to find his feet on his comeback to the Bundesliga.

However, a deal could depend on United handing a huge pay-off. Sancho currently earns a basic salary of £250,000-a-week at United which Dortmund may not afford.

Sebastien Haller is currently their highest earner at £181,000-a-week and Dortmund are unlikely to offer Sancho anything higher for a permanent transfer this summer.

Keeping this in mind, United may need to compensate for the difference in wages with a huge pay-off. Else, Sancho could play hardball and refuse to leave the club.
