Sancho has 'gentleman's agreement' where he can quit Dortmund

  Sancho has 'gentleman's agreement' where he can quit Dortmund The likelihood of Jadon Sancho quitting Borussia Dortmund in the summer has just shot up, with club chief Michael Zorc confirming they'll be willing to let the star go. Manchester United came close to snatching Sancho last year but the Old Trafford side couldn't match Dortmund's final requirements. Both Ole Gunnar Solskajer's side and Liverpool are being linked to another attempt this summer. With the German side enduring a frustrating season, finding themselves in danger of failing to qualify for the Champions League, both Sancho and Erling Haaland will be considering their futures.

Manchester United are reportedly desperate to wrap up a £77million deal for Jadon Sancho as soon as possible so they can get their marquee signing at Old Trafford before Euro 2020 begins.

United were heavily linked with a move for the Borussia Dortmund and England winger last summer but missed the German club's deadline to complete a move before they returned for pre-season training.

However, 12 months later, United are still in need of a player who can operate on the right of their attack and are now reportedly ready to come back in for Sancho and complete a deal quickly.

Borussia Dortmund 'slash Jadon Sancho's price tag to around £80m'

  Borussia Dortmund 'slash Jadon Sancho's price tag to around £80m' A number of clubs were placed on red alert last week after it emerged that Dortmund have a 'gentleman's agreement' with Sancho - a sign that a transfer would be possible this summer. And now, as claimed by SPORT, Sancho will be available for between £74-78m in a major boost to his potential suitors.

According to German newspaper BILD, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants Sancho, 21, at Old Trafford before he joins up with England for this summer's Euros.

Solskjaer has shifted his focus to signing the winger just 24 hours after tying down striker Edinson Cavani to a new contract.

It was thought United would be in the market for a new centre forward this summer with the Uruguayan expected to move to Argentina once his contract expired at the end of the season.

United have been strongly linked with a move for either Tottenham forward Harry Kane or Sancho's Dortmund team-mate Erling Haaland.

But Cavani committed his future to United by signing a new 12-month deal on Monday and it now seems as though United will turn their attention back to Sancho.

United legend Gary Neville said on Monday night he didn't think United would buy a striker after Cavani's commitment and said his former club could look 'a lot smarter if they get him (Sancho) this time around for half price.'

Sancho is back in red hot form for Dortmund, who are desperately trying to tie down Champions League qualification in the final weeks of the campaign.

Rumour Has It: Man Utd lining up Sancho move, Juve reject Barca's De Ligt pursuit

He scored twice, including the match winner, as Dortmund beat rivals RB Leipzig 3-2 last weekend to keep their top four hopes alive.

After the game, Sancho publicly refused to commit his future to Dortmund after being asked where he will be playing his football next season.

Speaking to reporters at the final whistle, Sancho said: 'Will I leave the club? I don’t know about my future.

'I am very happy here in Dortmund at the moment. I love the club, the fans and the team. They gave me my first professional start.'

Last year, Dortmund instructed United to conclude a transfer for Sancho before their pre-season camp 12 months ago, of which United failed to do so.

Solskjaer's side were also unable to meet Dortmund's firm £110m valuation for the winger, meaning negotiations quickly came apart at the seams.

Now, it is understood that Liverpool have joined the race for the youngster with Dortmund open to selling for a lesser fee this summer.

As reported by Sportsmail, Sancho has a 'gentleman's agreement' with Dortmund and Michael Zorc, the club's sporting director, revealed that 'certain conditions' would see Sancho move on and the England international has a number of suitors.

Along with United and Liverpool, Chelsea are also reported to have posted an interest in Sancho.
