Manchester City are set to profit from Manchester United’s impending transfer of Borussia Dortmund starlet Jadon Sancho.
Sancho left City in 2017 to pursue first-team opportunities after failing to see a route into Pep Guardiola’s team at the Etihad Stadium.
The England international has since established himself as a superstar in the Bundesliga, and now appears destined for a move to United which will give City a closer, and more painful reminder of a talent they let slip through their grasp.
The Guardian reports United are close to agreeing a £90m deal with Dortmund for Sancho, who will sign a five-year contract worth £250,000 per-week.
And Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol reminded supporters on Tuesday that City inserted a 15% sell-on clause for Sancho after his exit.
This means City would stand to earn £15m if the Sancho deal totals £100m, or £13.5m if the £90m fee mentioned in the Guardian is to be believed.
Anyhow, this will be little consolation for City who let Sancho leave for around just £10m, as per BBC Sport.
