Jadon Sancho set to be offered huge Dortmund deal to fend off Man Utd or Chelsea transfer

Jadon Sancho will be offered a huge pay rise by Borussia Dortmund if he agrees to stay at the Bundesliga club and resist a move back to the Premier League summer with several clubs interested.

They will bump his salary up from six million to 10 million euros a year, and make the young England star the highest paid player at the club behind only captain Marco Reus.

It is a sign the German outfit are increasingly confident that Sancho is ready to stay for at least one extra year and be part of their thrilling team.

This is exactly the tactic Dortmund used to persuade both Robert Lewandowski and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to remain at the club for another 12 months when they seemed certain to depart.

Manchester United have been leading the chase to bring 20-year-old Sancho back to this country, but they have also been linked with many other players at high transfer fees.

Liverpool and Chelsea also keen on the England forward, but viewed as far less likely to spend big this summer.

Another year at Dortmund for 20-year-old might mean more options for Sancho when switching clubs.

Meanwhile, United have been warned that Sancho won’t come on the cheap.

That’s according to University of Liverpool senior teacher and football finance expert Kieran Maguire.

Sancho has been in sensational form this season, netting 17 goals and providing 19 assists in all competitions.

Maguire exclusively told Express Sport: “You’ve got to look at it on a deal by deal basis.

“First of all Manchester United have a strong balance sheet, they had £100m in the bank at the end of December, I appreciate that since then they have signed Bruno Fernandes.

“But even so Manchester United are very successful, they’ve got great commercial revenue generation so I think they are in a strong position to buy then you’ve got to look at the individual position of the clubs that are selling.

“Dortmund, I think will be in a relatively strong position to resist offers, or resist the first offer.”

United were sitting fifth in the Premier League when all football was suspended due to coronavirus.

And Sancho is waiting to see which teams will contest the Champions League before making his final decision on his next destination.
