Borussia Dortmund is set to engage in discussions with Manchester United regarding Jadon Sancho's future.

In the latest football transfer news, Borussia Dortmund is gearing up for discussions with Manchester United regarding a possible permanent deal for Jadon Sancho.

The English winger, who recently returned to Germany on loan, has impressed with his performances, sparking interest from Dortmund to secure his services permanently.

Financial Terms and Obstacles

According to a report by Sky Germany's Florian Plettenburg, there are ongoing talks between Borussia Dortmund and Manchester United to finalize a deal for Jadon Sancho.

One of the major hurdles in the negotiations is Sancho's hefty salary at United, which stands at nearly £300,000 a week. Despite this challenge, Dortmund is prepared to offer up to €35 million for the talented winger, significantly less than the £73 million United paid in 2021.

Additional Challenges and Opportunities

Apart from financial aspects, other factors may impact Jadon Sancho's potential permanent move to Dortmund. The future of Erik ten Hag, who has been critical of Sancho, remains uncertain, casting a shadow over the transfer talks.

Moreover, the stance that part-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe will take adds another layer of complexity to the situation. Nonetheless, Sancho's impressive form at Dortmund has attracted interest, with Saudi Arabian clubs reportedly eyeing him for a summer transfer.
