After many rumors from the newspapers about Jadon Sancho going to play for Manchester United, now there is an official confirmation from the great boss Dortmund. Dortmund has confirmed that Manchester United officially does not buy Jadon Sancho.
MANCHESTER UNITED OFFICIALLY DID NOT RECRUIT SANCHO
According to the latest news from the British press, specifically the Daily Mail, the Manchester United deal to buy Jadon Sancho officially ended without any “blockbuster” happening. Sancho will continue to play for Dortmund at least next season. This was confirmed by the sporting director of the German club Michael Zorc.
Speaking to the press, Michael Zorc said: “The deal has ended with no results. Jadon Sancho will still play for us next season. This is the final decision to be made. I think this is the most obvious answer to all problems in recent years.”
The sporting director also revealed rather surprising information, that the Dortmund club secretly negotiated and extended the contract with the British midfielder until 2023, from a year ago. According to Zorc, the main reason that the deal broke down was that the Manchester United side refused to pay £108 million in transfer fees because they thought it was too high a fee in the current crisis.
TRAIN FOR DORTMUND
Manchester United missed the deadline for Dortmund to ask for the purchase of British winger Jadon Sancho today, August 10. After weeks of going nowhere, Sancho is now on the road with Dortmund to prepare for the next season.
This morning, Sancho boarded a plane with Dortmund teammates moving to the training area and theoretically left behind the opportunity to join MU this summer. The Bundesliga runner-up team informed Manchester United that they must finish before August 10 because while Manchester United‘s season still has the Europa League, Dortmund is finished and they will start the 2020/21 season again.
Dortmund asked for £ 108 million for Jadon Sancho and did not accept any haggling. Manchester United, after weeks of offering to negotiate enough sugar, finally failed to meet that request and Dortmund no longer wants to sell Sancho. They don’t have time to wait because they need to buy replacements.
Jadon Sancho and his teammates were present at the Bad Ragaz resort in Switzerland to participate in training for 8 days. Dortmund will have two heated matches against SCR Altach and Austria Vienna. The presence of Sancho in these two matches will tell the public whether Manchester United has given up or not, because if Dortmund is not too determined, they may temporarily withdraw Sancho from these friendly matches to avoid injury before transfer.
This year 2020 is a special year due to the transfer market, although it is delayed to keep the same time, the Covid-19 translation has caused the league leagues to overlap and the Bundesliga ended quite early. Dortmund has also been disqualified in the Champions League so they took a break from July before resuming training for the following season.
According to the Kicker, the Manchester United side does not seem to be serious about Dortmund’s deadline announcement, thinking that even after today, the “Red Devil” can still go to the Ruhr team, stack money on the table and demand allows negotiations with Jadon Sancho. However, Dortmund said it was done, and the opportunity for Manchester United to own the British jewel was officially closed.
