Manchester United could be set to give Manchester City a transfer boost as they attempt to complete a deal for one of their former players. Jadon Sancho left Pep Guardiola’s side in 2017 to join Dortmund but although Man City failed to include a ‘anti-United’ clause, they did however make sure to add a sell-on clause.
Solskjær’s side is poised to complete the signing of Jadon Sancho, if proceeding go as planned in the next few days, and Manchester City are entitled to 15% of any fee, according to Manchester Evening News.
Guardiola ruled out a move to bring Sancho back to the Etihad last year, arguing that the player would not want a return to the place he tried so hard to leave.
Should United complete the deal at a reported £82 million, £12.3m will go straight into City’s bank and possibly their transfer kitty. Any sum going into City’s pocket will be far less than if a deal was completed last summer when Dortmund demanded well over £100m in order to let Sancho leave.
The United hierarchy will be aware of the sell-on clause, but it is not expected to have any effect on negotiations between United, Dortmund or the players’ entourage.
