INSIDER: Borussia Dortmund were close to selling Sancho to Man Utd for this price...

Borussia Dortmund came close to selling Jadon Sancho to Manchester United over the summer, it has been revealed.

However, Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano does expect Sancho to move on next summer, but possibly not to United.

He told Que Golazo podcast: "Next summer I expect Jadon Sancho to leave the club.

"Yes, he was really one step away from leaving Borussia Dortmund this summer, Manchester United were really close to signing him for €100m, but then Borussia Dortmund changed their plans, but Manchester United had the agreement with the player and his agents, so everything was ready, and then the deal collapsed at the last stages.

"That's why I say next summer, I expect Jadon Sancho to leave the club and be back in the Premier League.

"We have to understand if Manchester United will arrive with €120million [£109million], if they will be ready this time to sign the player or if they'll take the risk of other clubs joining the race.

"I will say like Liverpool, Chelsea, and a lot of clubs are scouting the situation of Jadon Sancho, so at this point the race is open."
