Borussia Dortmund are prepared to pay Jadon Sancho premium wages if he turns down a move to Manchester United.
The Red Devils are currently favourites in the race for Sancho, among several other Premier League outfits.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on securing a deal for the teenage sensation but transfer fees could cross the £120m mark. Sancho himself wants to come back home and test himself in Premier League. Dortmund are aware of how quickly his stock has risen over the past two seasons and what his potential is in the transfer market.
If Sancho were to stay for one more season at Signal Iduna Park, BVB are set to reward him with a contract worth £8.6m per year. At £165,000-per-week, he will match the wages of Dortmund’s highest earner, Marco Reus.
Last month, Dortmund’s CEO, Hans-Joachim Watzke revealed that Sancho leaving this summer is a real possibility. He said, “Even before the coronavirus outbreak, we said our preference is to keep Jadon with us. But at the end of the day you always have to respect what the player wants
“I can clearly say that even the very rich clubs, despite the existential crisis, should not believe that they can go on a bargain tour with us. We don’t have to sell anyone below their value.”
