Manchester United remain confident from the start of the window that they will bring Jadon Sancho to the Old Trafford and Fabrizio Romano confirms that agent fees are not a problem for the Red Devils.
Senior Sky Sports press-member James Cooper believes that the transfer fee between United and BVB is not a problem, as well.
In fact, Manchester United are currently in a very good position financially and the fans’ perception that the hurdle in the Sancho deal might be the lack of funds is wrong. United have also taken out a bumper £140m (€181.5m) loan from their £150m syndicated revolving credit facility (RCF) for potential summer signings.
Contradicting many reports earlier stating that United might postpone the deal for another year or that they were looking into Sancho replacements like Douglas Costa, Dwight McNeil, Gareth Bale or James Rodriguez, Duncan Castles begs to differ. In his The Transfer Window podcast with Ian McGarry, he suspects that the Jadon Sancho deal is very similar to that of Neymar’s to PSG. Christian Falk seconds that too.
Castles further believes that the deal is agreed with BVB and the English International, but only awaits Jadon Sancho’s BVB bonuses.
According to the sports journalist, the contract which Sancho signed last year at Signal Iduna Park has a 1-year loyalty clause which yields him €1.5m and a bonus if he gets 10+ England caps, which he did against Iceland on Friday. Castles believes that this is the only reason the signatures and public announcements are pending.
Hang in there Reds, Sancho might be around the corner.
