Manchester United have reportedly taken a final decision over the transfer fee and wages of Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.
The Red Devils decided they will not seal the transfer of the England international at the Bundesliga club’s current asking price.
On top of that, it seems Sancho’s huge wage demands are also not seen as realistic, with Old Trafford club ready to abandon their pursuit this summer unless something changes, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Mirror explain that Ed Woodward has been working to trim down MUFC’s wage bill anyway, so it seems this move looks unrealistic for the moment owing to the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It’s claimed by the Mirror that United could now wait to do a deal next summer unless both Dortmund and Sancho lower their demands, though there doesn’t currently seem to be much indication that they’ll do that.
The 20-year-old has been an eye-catching performer in his time in the Bundesliga and looks like he’d be a worthwhile investment, even for huge money.
Still, Sancho might now be out of reach for the Red Devils and there will surely be other opportunities to move for him in the future.
