Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho admits it is “hard to say” where his future lies as the rumour mill nearly explodes under the pressure of multiple stories suggesting a switch to Man Utd is imminent.
United have made the 20-year-old England forward their primary target when the transfer window opens on 27 July. However, with Dortmund slapping a £100m price tag on him and United setting a £50m ceiling negotiations appear to have reached a stalemate.
If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side secure qualification for the Champions League next season then maybe that ceiling will be lifted. If they don’t secure a top-four spot in the Premier League, they could still qualify by winning the Europa League, but the final will not be played until 21 August, so it could be a close call.
