Fjortoft reveals Borussia Dortmund insider text message claiming Sancho is United bound

Respected Bundesliga journalist Jan Aage Fjortoft has claimed to have spoken to his ‘best source’ and insider at Borussia Dortmund about the latest reports surrounding Jadon Sancho.

And the latest surrounding the England international is a series of conflicting reports.

Simon Stone of BBC Sport claims Manchester United are prepared to walk away from a deal for Sancho unless Dortmund lower their demands, issuing a warning that they will not be held to ransom.

This has been backed up by The Athletic’s David Ornstein as well as talkSPORT.

However, German reporter Christian Falk and Fabrizio Romano claim that is not the case and talks are still underway, with personal terms between Sancho and United already agreed.

In reaction to all of this, Fjortoft took to Twitter saying he had been texting an insider at Dortmund today, receiving the following message in reply: “I am sure that Jadon will come to Man Utd this summer.”

Considering Sancho appears to be United’s main target this summer, it would be disappointing if we ended up baulking at Dortmund’s asking price, though everyone has been warned that this will be a difficult market.

We’ll have updates for you when we have them.
