Manchester United have reportedly made their first bid of the summer for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.

United reportedly want to bring the 21-year-old right-winger to Old Trafford before the start of the Euro 2020 tournament. However with the departure of Ed Woodward it is unclear if United will be even more useless in the transfer market, or if they will be able to introduce some vague competence to the set up. Given the Glazer family have rarely done well at the club with anything to do with football, it’s probably not worth getting your hopes up over this, or indeed anything to do with United. Or, indeed, anything.

United were quoted around £100 million for Sancho last summer but it was not clear if Woodward ever managed to get his finger out of his hole as instead United brought in Edinson Cavani, Donny van der Beek, Alex Telles, Amad Diallo and Facundo Pellistri.

Bild claim that United have made a bid of £60 million, which is the equivalent of a nice bid of (€69.5m).

However, Dortmund are believed to want more before they agree to let him go to United. They are holding out for £78m (around €90m) with add-on fees to take an final sum higher.

United would offer Sancho around £13 million a year, making him one of the highest earners in the Premier League and Europe, and would satisfy Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s desire for a right winger, which he had wanted to add last season. Daniel James has had a difficult season with United and despite slight improvement he has been linked with a move to Leeds United and other Premier League sides.

It is also reported that Sancho already has a financial agreement in principle with United, meaning the sole major sticking point in getting any deal arranged is the financial arrangement with United and Dortmund.
