Sancho And Grealish Step Closer To Utd MoveMatthew Rush
The transfer saga of Jadon Sancho to Manchester United appears to have intensified last night. Social media was awash with Sancho rumours that he had signed a 5-year deal with wages starting at £140k per week, rising to £200k per week.
Even well-respected football transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano confirmed that the player’s terms had been agreed but the stumbling block could be the fee. Dortmund are looking for around £100m for Sancho. United hierarchy are confident they can obtain their man for much less than this figure. United are unwilling to pay more than the £89m that they did for Pogba, a number of years ago.
The transfer of Jack Grealish also seems to be gathering pace, reporting yesterday Grealish and his family are interested in purchasing a family home in Cheshire which is a favourite haunt for his proposed Manchester united teammates. Aston Villa are in a precarious position in the league, sitting third from bottom on 27 points with no wins from the last 9 games. Grealish value is reported to be worth £60m but again, United believe if Aston Villa were to be relegated, they could reduce this figure significantly. Grealish is very interested in the move but nothing will officially take place until the season has ended and the transfer window opens. Grealish and Sancho would be 2 major signings that would dramatically improve the current squad’s depth and consistency.
During yesterday’s press conference for today’s Bournemouth match at old Trafford, Ole gave a little hint about the clubs summer’s dealings.
