Man City Has An Advantage On Manchester United And Liverpool Over The Jadon Sancho Transfer

Borussia Dortmund’s rising star attracts great interest, and with a £100million fee, already mentioned, Manchester City has a decisive advantage. Manchester City has an edge on their rivals if they ever try to rewrite the new English star, Jadon Sancho. Blues sold the 18-year-old wings to Borussia Dortmund for around £ 8million in the summer of 2017 after London decided to sign a lucrative new deal.

Blues had offered him the biggest deal in the history of his academy – said to be around £ 30,000 a week – but as he insisted on one step, they made it clear they would not sell to a Premier League rival. Sancho felt that his chances for the first-team football would be higher if he moved on and was brave enough to accept the offer from a Bundesliga club with a track record of blooding and improvement of the young players.

The deal was a good one for a player who had not been involved in the first team – although he was clamped in the first team together with the youth teams Phil Foden and Brahim Diaz. City paid about £ 66,000 to the player when he was a dazzling 14-year-old at Watford, who also picked up around $ 800,000 as their reduction of the sale in Dortmund.

So Blues have already made a profit, while Sancho has quickly made a name for himself on Westfalen Stadium, with a goal and six assists – putting him at the top of the Bundesliga assists table – as Dortmund has raised top spot in the league. Sancho capped it with a call to the senior England team this week, along with Gareth Southgate’s boys for the Nations League game against Croatia and Spain. There is already a £ 100million price tag on his head, with Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool, Spurs and Chelsea all said to be interested.
