Therefore, Dortmund realized they needed to act now. According to media reports, Dortmund is expected to persuade Jadon Sancho to stay with the promise of a raise from £ 5.2 million / year to £ 8.7 million / year (up £ 3.5 million).

If Sancho agrees, he will become the 2nd highest-paid player at the club. The highest-earning star in Dortmund is still captain Marco Reus with £ 9.6 million / year.

Currently, there has been no response from Sancho. As Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke admitted last month: “Even before the outbreak of the pandemic, Dortmund still maintained the position that the club always wanted Sancho to stay. However, Dortmund respected the decision of the football player”.

Not so long ago, the British press reported that MU’s young striker Mason Greenwood could be the main factor to untie the knot to help the Manchester team recruit Sancho from Dortmund.

It is not clear whether Dortmund wants Greenwood to transfer him to Signal Iduna Park or a long-term loan deal. As ESPN reported, Dortmund once offered to buy Greenwood in the Summer 2019 but was rejected by MU.

Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer identified Jadon Sancho as his top transfer priority during the summer transfer window of 2020. The former Man City star also received the attention of many of Europe’s top teams as well as the Premier League. like Chelsea, Real or PSG. However, until the present time, the Dortmund management team has kept a pretty tough stance on not selling Sancho, at least for the next 1 year.

It is this that makes the negotiations for negotiations become a stalemate. However, according to recent revelations, Man United may be able to remove the bottleneck in this deal by bringing another young player into the transfer agreement. Specifically, ESPN emphasized, striker Greenwood is being considered a “scapegoat” to activate blockbuster named Sancho, besides a transfer fee will be discussed in detail if the exchange is approved.

As we know, Dortmund always knew how to detect and nurture young players very impressed. The latest Jadon Sancho or Erling Haaland is the clearest evidence for this. Therefore, ESPN said, Dortmund appreciated Greenwood and wanted to bring the young English player to Germany.

The 18-year-old has scored 13 goals in all competitions this season and he is considered an integral part of Manchester United’s future under Solskjaer. However, in the context of negotiating with Tottenham to bring in striker Harry Kane, the leadership team can completely “sacrifice” Greenwood to complete the ambition to recruit Jadon Sancho.
