“Finally everything is completed, all paperworks have been signed between Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund for Jadon Sancho. United will pay €85m as fee with add-ons over it, taking it to around €90m total.”

“It was February 2020 when Manchester United first had the direct contact, an official contract, with Dortmund for Sancho. It was the contact after which United were preparing to make an official bid for him.”

“Manchester United were really confident to complete Sancho deal last summer, they had the green light from the player. Everything was prepared for negotiating the transfer but then COVID-19 changed the situation completely.”

“Manchester United were so close to acquiring Jadon Sancho that an agency negotiating with other clubs over a winger was informed by United, ‘we don’t need wingers, we are getting Jadon Sancho’ – it was that close.”

“Manchester United then tried to negotiate around €80m for Sancho while Dortmund were asking for €120m. But at the end of July 2020, Jadon Sancho was ‘one step’ away from being a United player — it was very close.”

“Negotiations went on, but Dortmund then didn’t accept the last bid from Manchester United for Sancho — they always wanted €120m. United were confident last summer the transfer will happen but ultimately gave up.”

“Manchester United tried to sign Ousmane Dembele from Barcelona After Sancho deal collapsed last summer.  again here also there was no agreement on a simple loan so the deal collapsed.”

“After the deal collapsed last summer, Manchester United always stayed in touch with Sancho, his agents, always showing him — ‘we want you, you will be the target again next summer, Jadon Sancho is a future United player’.”

“Sancho was really appreciative of this because Chelsea was intrigued, but he wasn’t a priority. Liverpool was really interested in selling either Mane or Salah, but United continued pressing and pushing.”

“At the end of April this year, Sancho had a secret meeting with Dortmund where he told — ‘I want to go to Manchester United, I have an agreement to leave if right bid arrives, but please this time I want to go there now’.”

“Dortmund have been respectful with Sancho and said ‘yes, okay let’s do it. We’re going to ask €80m, €80m-85m but not as €120m as one year ago.’ They started talks at around €95m, but then completed agreement for €85m”

“It was really impressive to see Jadon Sancho pushing and pushing to go to Manchester United. He had an agreement on personal terms verbally with United since February 2020, they completed agreement during the summer last year.”

“Manchester United were completely focused on completing everything for the Sancho deal this summer. They were even working during the Euros to avoid any surprise or hijack from other clubs and then completed everything.”

“Jadon Sancho’s contract at Manchester United is for 5 years with the option for another. If United win the Premier League or Champions League in coming years. Sancho will get a bonus as part of a clause in his contract.”

“Ole Gunnar Solskjaer strongly wanted Jadon Sancho. United consider him one of the best talents in the world. United are happy with Sancho, the player is happy after joining United.

“Manchester United are preparing and working on the bid they will send to Real Madrid in the next few days for Varane, who is ready to agree to United’s contract. And it’s only a matter of days to see what will happen.” #mufc #mujournal
