One of the longest drawn transfer sagas of the last summer could still resurface this summer, and this time, there could finally be success recorded. English Premier League giants Manchester United tracked German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund’s exciting winger Jadon Sancho for the entirety of the past summer transfer window only for the deal to collapse as both clubs failed to arrive at an agreement.
Ponder has revealed that while Dortmund are still expected to prove stubborn in negotiations this summer, the deal could still happen if the Red Devils play their cards right. Borussia Dortmund are currently battling to nail down a qualification spot for the UEFA Champions League next term and if they fail in their bid to do so, they could risk losing a couple of their stars, including Sancho and his teammate Erling Haaland.
Haaland himself is linked with an exit from the German club and is attracting interest from a host of clubs across Europe, with the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City, and Manchester United all monitoring the developments.
Dortmund director Michael Zorc recently announced that the club would not be under any pressure to sell any of their players this summer, and stated that if they are going to sell any player, the interested club would have to meet their demands or else there would be no deal in place to finalize a transfer. United manager Olé Gunnar Solksjær would fancy a Sancho move to Old Trafford and will reportedly do anything to make it happen.
