United ready to sacrifice five footballers to sign Jadon Sancho

Manchester United have been following Jadon Sancho for some time and this summer he seems ready to bid hard for him. However, the high price of the Borussia Dortmund striker will force the English club to do without five of its footballers, including Alexis Sánchez and Jesse Lingard, in order to make room for the young Englishman, as reported by the Mirror.

At Old Trafford they seem ready to fulfill the famous premise that before they enter, they let out. The Covid-19 crisis has caused a drop in revenue, so if United wants to make a large investment with Sancho, they must first be capitalized.

Dortmund wants to enter more than 100 million euros for its star, a dizzying figure, even for United, one of the clubs that generates the most income in the world.

On the exit ramp there are four soccer players. Alexis Sánchez is the first of them, since his performance has differed greatly from the great expectations that were in him when he came from Arsenal. In addition, getting rid of his high tab, about 23 million euros per season, would free up a large space in terms of wages.

Solksjaer warned that Alexis would return to United in the summer

Inter wants him, but not at the price agreed last summer on his loan (around 25 million euros). Placing him on another team will certainly be an arduous task.

Jesse Lingard is also one of the great candidates to date. English has not followed the expected progression and seems stagnant. Along with him, Andreas Pereira and defenders Phil Jones and Chris Smalling, who this season has been on loan at Roma, would also be given a passport.

United hopes to get more than 50 million euros for all of them and thus be able to finance the arrival of Jadon Sancho.
