Man Utd get Jadon Sancho green light for 2021 transfer after painful summer saga

Manchester United have been given the green light to sign Jadon Sancho next summer.

United made the England star their No.1 target this summer – but were unable to lure him to Old Trafford to leave boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer frustrated.

Dortmund demanded £108m for the winger, but United refused to bid more than £90m and were forced to concede defeat in the chase for the 20-year-old.

But now Dortmund have opened the door for United to get their man at the end of this season, after admitting Sancho will still be available if the asking price is met.

Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke said: "They (United) misjudged the situation and thought we would be more willing to compromise. We had a clear line and will continue to do so next summer.

"In this industry, you can never say that a player is completely unsellable. I heard and read everywhere in the spring that Sancho was gone. But he's here.

"We had an agreement with him and it didn't look like that."

United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward thought Dortmund's price for Sancho was too high due to the impact on the game of Covid-19.

Instead, United signed Amand Diallo in a deal that won't see him arrive until January, leaving their right-wing options unchanged.

But United remain huge fans of Sancho and are expected to make a second attempt to sign him next summer.

That is despite knowing Dortmund remain formidable opponents when it comes to negotiating a fee.
