Jadon Sancho will pocket £250,000-a-week when his long-awaited move to Manchester United is finally sealed – despite playing a reduced role at Euro 2020.

And that will represent a massive pay rise for the England forward, whose basic salary with German outfit Borussia Dortmund stands at only £100,000 a week.

United, though, have been forced into giving him a significantly bigger wage packet at Old Trafford because of Sancho’s bumper bonus package with the Bundesliga outfit.

The one-time Man City Academy starlet, 21, who made his first appearance at the Euros last week as a substitute in the 1-0 win over Czech Republic, regularly netted an additional £90,000 every seven days last season in add-ons.

Sancho’s representatives were initially demanding close to £350,000 per week for him to sign for United in their proposed £80m summer swoop.

But United, whose highest paid star at the club is second-choice keeper David de Gea – on £370,000 a week – refused to agree to put Sancho in that top pay bracket.

While Gareth Southgate has chosen not to hand the young forward a starring role during the current major tournament, his statistics in Germany are nothing short of sensational.

The winger has scored 50 goals and laid on 64 assists across 137 outings for Dortmund, and has been forced to ignore transfer talk while focusing on his performances.

“I’m cool about it,” he told talkSPORT in early June.

“There’s always going to be speculation, especially when you do well.

“It’s just how you handle that on the pitch.

"You’ve got to keep doing what you’re doing, if you keep on doing that then I’m sure that won’t be a problem.

“The main thing is my football and that’s what I’m focusing on at the moment.”
