Man Utd on Jadon Sancho transfer alert as Dortmund CONFIRM 'gentleman's agreement' to leave… but not for Haaland

BORUSSIA DORTMUND have confirmed a 'gentleman's agreement' to allow Jadon Sancho to leave in the summer.

Manchester United tried to sign the England winger last year and are tipped to renew their interest if he becomes available.

And it is reported that Borussia may drop their valuation of the 21-year-old to the £85million mark – having previously demanded £108m.

Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc confirmed the situation on Saturday after his side's 5-0 DFB-Pokal win over Holstein Kiel.

But he confirmed that no such agreement is in place with Erling Haaland.

Zorc told German portal ARD: "We already had a gentlemen's agreement with Jadon last year that he can move under certain conditions.

"However, this agreement doesn’t exist with Erling."

According to Sport1, Borussia are willing to accept a smaller fee ahead of Sancho's contract expiring in 2023.


It is not known what 'conditions' Zorc alluded to but the club are struggling to qualify for next season's Champions League.

With three games to go, Dortmund sit fifth in the Bundesliga table and a point off the qualification places.

Fourth-place Eintracht Frankfurt also have the easier run-in as Borussia face top-six rivals RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen in the final weeks, and Leipzig again in the German Cup final.

Sancho has once again enjoyed an impressive year in front of goal, contributing 12 strikes and 18 assists, two of which came against Kiel.

Manchester United are ready to up the ante in their market dealings after Eric Bailly signed a new contract, with Edinson Cavani not far behind.

A huge triple deal for Sancho, Haaland and Jack Grealish has been rumoured.

But competition for the ex-Manchester City winger could be high with Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool previously tipped to bid.
