Manchester United chiefs are hoping to get Jadon Sancho for a cut-price fee this summer and believe his value could be halved due to the coronavirus crisis.

Borussia Dortmund are said to want more than £100million for the 20-year-old England international but no fee has been agreed between the two clubs.

And United, according to the Transfer Window Podcast, believe they can sign him for as little as £52m.

The clubs are said to be ‘some way off’ agreeing a fee for him as they wait to see how the market looks post-coronavirus but United chiefs believe they will get the better end of the deal.

It’s set to be a busy summer at Old Trafford.

Jack Grealish, Harry Kane, James Maddison and Kalidou Koulibaly have all been heavily linked with a move to Manchester, while a decision is still set to be made over whether Odion Ighalo’s loan will be made permanent.

But Sancho has been the most consistently linked with a move.

The winger, who has scored 14 goals and provided 15 assists in 21 Bundesliga starts this season, has become one of the hottest prospects in the world and has already been capped 11 times by England.
