Borussia Dortmund REJECT Manchester United’s opening bid of £67m for Jadon Sancho… with the German club demanding £80m before parting ways with the England star
- Manchester United have finally made another move to sign Jadon Sancho
- The Red Devils have floated an opening offer of £67million for the English star
- Borussia Dortmund, however, have rejected this offer and value him higher
- The German side believe Sancho’s value will rise further still during the Euros
Manchester United have had an opening offer of £67million rejected by Borussia Dortmund for winger Jadon Sancho.
Talks are ongoing but the clubs are understood to be around £14m apart in valuation for the 21-year-old.
Dortmund want £77m plus bonuses and want the fee paid over four years as opposed to United’s proposal to pay over five.
Manchester United have finally made their first official move to buy Jadon Sancho this summer
All parties are wary of transfer talks turning into another saga with Dortmund wanting business tied up by July 23 when their squad comes together for pre-season camp.
Dortmund have an agreement with Sancho that he can leave once his valuation is met and United are the main contenders for his signature.
The England winger admitted on Thursday that a move to Old Trafford has been the topic of conversation among his teammates as he prepares for the European Championship.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is determined to get Sancho but United’s opening offer is to be rejected

‘I’m cool about it. You know, there’s always going to be speculation, especially when you do well,’ Sancho said.
‘It’s just how you handle that on the pitch and just keep doing what you’re doing.’
Pressed whether he had spoken to the Manchester United contingent in the squad, he told talkSPORT: ‘Of course, all the boys have a lot of questions, you know.
‘Again, I just tell the boys: ”look, I’m just focused on football at the moment” and we just focus on the Euros, step by step.’
Sancho has a close bond with Marcus Rashford, which United hope will play in their favour
Dortmund expect interest in Sancho to increase during the Euros and so will bargain hard
Sancho is the only star Dortmund want to sell this summer but expect Chelsea to hold further talks over the future of their prized striker Erling Haaland.
United are also continuing discussions with Atletico Madrid over a deal for full-back Kieran Trippier and remain keen to negotiate a new contract for midfielder Paul Pogba.
The France international’s deal is up next year and United risk losing their £89m signing for nothing next summer.
Ominously, when quizzed about his future by French media on Thursday, Pogba said: ‘I have one year left on my contract, everyone knows that. There have been no concrete proposals for contract extensions. I’m still in Manchester United.’
