Man Utd chief Ed Woodward sent Jadon Sancho transfer demand by Dortmund as Chelsea circle
Manchester United want to sign Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho in the summer but a deal won’t come cheap as the Bundesliga side have set a £120million asking price. Chelsea are also interested in the England international.
Dortmund have slapped the astronomical price tag on Sancho as he looks for a move to the Premier League in the summer.
The 19-year-old will be allowed to leave the club with United reportedly winning the race for his signature.
Ed Woodward may have to break the club’s transfer record to sign Sancho though.
The most United have ever spent is the £89m they parted with for Paul Pogba back in the summer of 2016.

Now Bild claim Dortmund will demand £120m for Sancho who has once again been in sensational form this season.
The teenager has netted 17 goals and provided 18 assists to his team-mates in all competitions as the Bundesliga side mount a title challenge.
And United would be ready to meet his £200,000-a-week wage demands to add another key player in their squad rebuild.
Sancho has been coy on his future this season though and claims he is just focusing on football.
