Video: Why Man City will receive up to £15m when Sancho completes Man Utd transfer

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.
