Manchester United must break the UK transfer record to sign Jadon Sancho, with Dortmund facing a fee over the £ 89m they paid to get Paul Pogba
- Borussia Dortmund want more than £ 89m for star winger Jadon Sancho
- Manchester United have resumed talks with them to sign the English striker
- For United to get their husband, they have to break the UK transfer record
- United is tight on cash and needs to include installment payments into a deal
Manchester United will have to break the British transfer record if they want to bring Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund this summer, while the German club are fighting for a record price and the two clubs are still far apart.
Despite the impact of the Covid pandemic on European football finances, the German club hasn’t significantly lowered its asking price of £ 108m from last year, and any offer from United would have to exceed the £ 89m paid for Paul Pogba in 2016, which is still the most expensive deal in the Premier League.
United’s board of directors is determined to support manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the transfer market this summer, with Sancho being the Norwegian’s main target.

Solskjaer believes United need a world-class player on the right wing to score goals and create opportunities for Edinson Cavani, Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.
Sancho, part of Gareth Southgate’s English EM squad, ended the Bundesliga season in great shape, helping Dortmund qualify for the Champions League and win the DFB Cup, scoring 10 goals in 15 games.
Sports mail is aware that the relationship between the two clubs has improved since lengthy negotiations broke down last year and talks have now resumed.

Sancho has no other applicants this summer, but agrees that he can leave if Dortmund’s demands are met.
Talks are ongoing but it is believed that United does not have the funds to sign Sancho, which means any deal would most likely have to involve structured payments over a number of years with add-ons and incentive bonuses.
United also want to be able to buy a center-back, with Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane topping the list but also attracting interest from Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.
