Midfielder Jadon Sancho could leave the German Bundesliga in the summer transfer window. This is because Borussia Dortmund are open to selling Sancho for the “right bid”, as reported by journalist Fabrizio Romano.
According to the journalist’s Twitter, the Bumblebees management is ready to part with Sancho for less than 120 million euros.
Borussia Dortmund will be open to sell Sancho in the summer if the ‘right bid’ will arrive, after one year ago he was one step away from joining #MUFC. 🚨
BVB will be asking less than €120m to let Sancho leave this year – but… no late bids at the end of the window. 🟡⚫️ #BVB

The financial toll that the pandemic put the German club in may have tempted them to sell Sancho at cut-price.
They are open to bids of a valuation lower than the one they put on the 21-year-old Englishman last year. Only, late bids will not be tolerated.
If not for this exact, exorbitant 120-million-euro amount, the player could have joined Manchester United about a year ago.
Per Romano, Borussia Dortmund management will not accept late offers. This is because they need time to find a replacement for the English winger, if he does transfer.
So, interested clubs must finalize a deal by the end of July, before Dortmund begin their pre-season training camp.
United’s Courting of Sancho
Jadon Sancho has played 34 games in all competitions this season, in which he has scored 12 goals and given 18 assists.
And per ESPN, Borussia Dortmund are open to selling Sancho before the nest season begins.
The ESPN report also says that Dortmund have ‘re-evaluated’ their situation and altered Sancho’s valuation to €100million (£87million).
United, whose offer worth over €95million (£82million) last season Dortmund reportedly rejected, would ironically now be accepted.
The Manchester club, as we reported in August, were a hair’s breath away from securing Sancho on a five-year contract.
But Dortmund’s insistence on selling the star for no less than 120 million euros finally made United abandon their pursuit in October.
Now, some say, if they wish to spend €100million, Sancho is again within United’s reach.
