Manchester United has displayed incredible form since the return of the Premier League and secured a vital place in next seasons UEFA Champions League on the final day of the season with a 2-0 win over rivals Leicester City. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will now be planning and plotting a way on how to challenge the top two for the Premier League title and is their top summer target Jadon Sancho the solution?
Sancho is now odds on favourite to sign for the Red Devils at 1/20 amongst most betting firms. That has led to punters looking to get involved on the market and here are some betting sites not in order to place your bet. This looks very likely as the odds show and this would be a good deal for both parties involved. Currently Manchester United are 15/2 to win the title next year but these odds would certainly shorten with the marquee signing of Sancho.
There is lots of speculation that Manchester United are now forming a bid for the England starlet this summer and this is now looking more likely than ever. Ed Woodward has come out just yesterday and said that United won’t be bullied into meeting Borussia Dortmund’s valuation of Sancho of £100million for the 20-year-old winger. However due to the odds this deal looking highly likely to be happening this summer. A package has been spoke about in which the whole sum would be paid across 3 seasons for Sancho due to the current climate with corona virus and funds most definitely being more limited than usual.
#MUFC have warned Dortmund they’re willing to walk away from Sancho unless they get realistic on price. Covid-19 crisis has cost United over £150m in lost income & expenditure & they feel Dortmund’s €120 price is divorced from reality in current climate https://t.co/10ayhzjjIw

United don’t believe that Dortmund’s valuation of Sancho, which would be a record for a British player beating Gareth Bale’s transfer from Tottenham Hotspur to Real Madrid for £85.3 million back in 2013, is unrealistic due to the financial impact from Covid-19 and according to major stakeholders, the virus is due to cost top flight European clubs a staggering £3.5bn.
United signing Sancho also wouldn’t come cheap on the wage bill also, a speculated £300k a week would make Sancho one of Utd’s top earners at the club and I’m sure Woodward want to offload some of their higher earners, e.g. Alexis Sanchez, to allow for the Sancho transfer.
