Borussia Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke has revealed the Bundesliga side would consider selling Jadon Sancho for the right price this summer.
Manchester United turned down the chance to sign the England international for €120m (£102m) last year, but Watzke says that Dortmund will look at a possible sale if a team comes in with a bid worth discussing:
“If there is an exceptional offer we will discuss it with the player and the agent, as always. Nonetheless, I am very sure that the transfer market will only run to a very limited extent this summer. Especially at the really big clubs, you can see what kind of wounds coronavirus has inflicted, and they are not small ones that heal within two weeks.”
Whether United would be able to get Sancho for below his original asking price, it isn’t known. The 21-year-old has not been as good this season in terms of his performances, but he has still managed 12 goals and 16 assists in 31 appearances.
The Red Devils may also face competition from rival clubs for his signature, with the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain having been mentioned as potential suitors in recent months.
With Sancho’s teammate Erling Haaland also a priority for United, though, it may be the case that the Manchester club will have to choose which one they will go after.
