How much money Man Utd saved by waiting a year to sign Jadon Sancho

Manchester United are set to complete a deal to sign Jadon Sancho this summer after the club reached a full agreement with Borussia Dortmund over his transfer, according to BILD.

The German publication claims that the club will pay €85m for Sancho’s services, with potentially another €10m based on add-ons and clauses.

Manchester United came close to signing the winger last year but failed to match Dortmund’s valuation, choosing to abandon a deal instead.

The club revived their interest this summer and are now reportedly set to save a fortune on the player, having been cited a €120m price tag by Dortmund 12 months ago, also according to BILD.

If reports are to be believed, the 12-month wait for a transfer means that Manchester United will initially pay €35m less than the fee Dortmund demanded in 2020.

It would justify Manchester United’s willingness to get a deal done this time around, as well as their cautious approach last summer. Should the add-ons and clauses be paid in full, the deal would total at €25m less than the €120m fee set in 2020.
