Borussia Dortmund won’t let their star player leave for cheap this summer regardless of whether the coronavirus negatively affects the transfer market this summer.
Jadon Sancho is in demand across Europe with top clubs, including Manchester United, looking to sign the winger.
A report from the Irish Independent has claimed, however, that United currently look to be Sancho’s preferred destination over Chelsea, despite him being a boyhood Blues fan.
Reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) claims Dortmund have issued a warning to clubs interested in signing Sancho, and it’s that they won’t change their mind on the player’s high valuation after the COVID-19 pandemic. And as of now they are refusing to sell him for less than €110m.
Romano adds that United are in contact with Sancho’s agent, but the Bundesliga giants have not received any official bid for the player yet. “It won’t be a quick deal,” he warns.
BVB message to all the clubs who asked for #Sancho: we don’t change the price after Coronavirus crisis and we’ll not sell him for less than €110M.
Man United are in contact with his agent, but BVB have not received any official bid yet. It won’t be a quick deal. 🔴 #MUFC

Another report in Football London claims BVB have set an asking price of €130m (£116.5m) which is more than what Romano claims… It is also suggested that Sancho will ask for £400,000-a-week as well as the huge transfer fee.
Sancho has been in fine form for Dortmund this season, scoring 17 goals and registering 17 assists in all competitions.
It goes without saying that he would make a massive difference at United.
