Manchester City will be in pole position to land 15% of any transfer fee paid for their former star, Jadon Sancho, with reports continuing to make the round that their neighboring rivals Manchester United are set to sign the attacker. The Borussia Dortmund winger has strongly been linked with a move to Old Trafford in the last couple of months and has also been tipped to make the move by friends and family.
And now, it has been revealed that Manchester City are entitled to as much as 15% of any fee for the 21-year-old, meaning that if United do complete the transfer by paying the £80 million sum, the Cityzens will be pocketing 12.3 million from the transfer.
There is, however, a slight twist in the contract talks between the two clubs. While reports claim that United have already agreed personal terms with Sancho, it is believed that the Red Devils want to pay the fee in installments, which is a slight problem because Dortmund want the fee to be paid once and in full.
The transfer is expected to be sealed in the coming days, particularly after Sancho returns from international duty with England at the Euros. While there is yet to be an agreement between the two clubs, it is believed that it’s only a matter of time before they agree.
