• Barcelona is back on the race to sign Jadon Sancho
  • Manchester United is reportedly not willing to pay more than £50 million for Sancho
  • Borussia Dortmund is demanding in excess of £100 million in exchange for Sancho

Barcelona is back on track to chase Jadon Sancho as Manchester United is reportedly unwilling to spend more than their offer for the rising footballer. Desperate to land a potent offensive weapon, the Catalans got a new lease on life. With the Red Devils unlikely to push with their bid, Barca is seen to pounce on chance and nab the Borussia Dortmund winger.

According to Aaditya Sibal of Everything Barca, Quique Setien “must take advantage of this situation” and ditch the club’s initial plan to sign Neymar and Lautaro Martinez, whose worth could exhaust a significant amount on Barca’s already ailing funds.

In his projection, Sibal added that by scheming a deal that would involve the transfer of other players from the Spanish giants, landing Sancho seems more viable.

“To reduce the asking price for the English playmaker the Spanish giants could try and offer players such as Ousmane Dembele, Phillipe Coutinho, and Ivan Rakitic to Dortmund,” Sibal continued. “Barcelona could also try and establish a season-long loan deal with a buyout clause for the young playmaker which could be similar to the deal that Phillipe Coutinho had with Bayern Munich.”

Sky Sports has reported that Man United is unwilling to go above their £50 million offer Sancho and match Dortmund that is demanding in excess of £100 million. But while a transfer to the Old Trafford stays as one of the targets of the English footballer, the disharmony in offers between the two clubs could spell the difference, which in the process could open a hole for Barcelona and their bid to penetrate.

“The 20-year-old is keen on a return to the Premier League but Borussia Dortmund and United remain poles apart on their valuations, with the Bundesliga club demanding in excess of £100m for the player they paid Manchester City £8m for in August 2017,” the report read.

“United remain the strong favorites to agree on a deal but officials behind the scenes at Old Trafford believe Dortmund's valuation does not sufficiently reflect the costly fallout from the coronavirus pandemic and must be cut substantially if a deal is to be reached.”

Sancho has been one of the hottest commodities in the upcoming transfer market, which is attributed to his outstanding showing for Dortmund. Just this season, the Englishman notched 17 goals and 17 assists in 32 league games for the German club.

For a club looking to build around youth and potential like Barcelona, landing Sancho, whose market value is estimated to be at around £115 million, is worth the chase.
