Man City due bumper windfall as Man Utd close in on Sancho deal

Manchester City will welcome a bumper windfall should Manchester United complete the signing of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

The Mirror says City are set to pocket £11million this summer, if Sancho moves to rivals United.

The Borussia Dortmund star left the Etihad for Germany back in 2017, turning down a £30,000-a-week deal at just 17 in the hunt for first-team football.

Sancho is set for a return to the North West.. with City's fierce rivals United.

But while the Sky Blues will have to watch one of their own cross the divide, they will at least profit financially.

Dortmund included a 15 per cent sell on clause in the deal that initially took Sancho to Germany.

The clause is active in any deal that costs more than the £8m that the Bundesliga side paid to sign the England ace.

United have already agreed on personal terms with Sancho.

The Red Devils are set to award the wing wizard a £350,000 five-year deal at Old Trafford.

But United chiefs still have to agree on a fee with Dortmund.
