The Borussia Dortmund wing will be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first transfer of the summer with the deal expected to go through to a medical
Manchester City will next be handed over around £ 10 million ($ 13.5 million) Jadon Sancho’s move to United neighbors of Borussia Dortmund.
An amount of just under £ 73 million ($ 101 million) has reportedly been agreed between the two clubs with the English international who will now undergo medical treatment before the agreement is completed.
City initially received £ 8m ($ 11m) when he left City’s Academy to move to Germany in 2017, but also negotiated a 15 per cent share of any future transfer.
Why did Sancho leave the city?
City paid Sanford’s youth club Watford a fee of around £ 66,000 when he joined the club as a 14-year-old.
He was part of the same youth team as Phil Foden and it looks like the pair are destined to break into the first team.
But Sancho turned down an offer of a new contract and was set aside for a pre-season tour of the United States before completing a move to Dortmund, meaning Watford would receive another £ 800,000.
Is City interested in signing Sancho again?
City boss Pep Guardiola does not doubt the quality of the 21-year-old, but rejects all suggestions that he could return to the Etihad Stadium.
‘We wanted him to stay, but he decided to go, and if people decide to leave, all we can do is [let them] leave, ” said the City boss in March before his team played Dortmund in the Champions League.
“I wish him all the best, except when he plays against us. I’m not sorry at all. If he’s happy, I’m happy. ‘
What will City use the money for?
City hope to sell a number of fringe players this summer to make a big move in the transfer market themselves.
Tottenham striker Harry Kane and Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish both on their coveted list of £ 100m moves set up for Euro 2020.
Bundesliga scouts regularly watch the City players of the Academy and the transfer kitten can be strengthened again with Lukas Nmecha, who was loaned out to Anderlecht last season, and is expected to move to Germany this summer.
