Manchester United have reportedly offered Jordan Sacho a lower salary than Borussia Dortmund to sign him this summer.
Sancho, 20, represented United boss Ole Gunnar Solskazar’s number one spot in the summer transfer window, but Dortmund’s £ 108 million valuation proved to be an inevitable hurdle after months of on-off negotiations.
However, according to Athletic, the Old Trafford club were never on the verge of signing the England star and the initial countdown to the deal has raised a staggering £ 227 million (250 250).
Manchester United have paid Jadon Sancho less than his Borussia Dortmund salary.
Then United chief executive Ed Woodward saw the total cost of the deal at 227 million.
The report claims that United – aware of maintaining their wage structure – initially offered Sanchez a lower salary than the total salary packet in Dortmund, before matching his Dortmund deal in early August, with the possibility of marginal growth based on performance.
No deal was accepted by the Sancho camp, the conditions claimed in the report were that United and France midfielder Paul Pogbar were thought to be in the অঞ্চ 250,000 a week zone.
By the end of the second week of September there had been a breakthrough with the wide forward salary, but the report further stated that the transfer fee had stumbled and other options were being considered due to differences between the two clubs over the matter.
Winger Sancho represented United boss Ole Gunnar Solskazar’s No. 1 target in the window.
But United have reportedly failed to come close to bringing the 20-year-old England star to Old Trafford.
United had said that the assessment of Sancho m 108m did not take into account the financial deficit caused by the coronavirus epidemic, with club chiefs thinking the price should have been reduced.
The outlet, however, added that the initial calculations had risen to 22 227 million, including wages and agent fees, leaving the United States with no option but to reject the amount.
However, the report added that Dortmund originally wanted a £ 108m fee as the ‘minimum’ and planned to get the fee closer to the 13 133 million (14 147 million) that Barcelona paid for Osman Dembele in 2017.
United never came close to that guaranteed amount, with an offer submitted through agents of chief negotiator Matt Jazz in the last week of September amounting to £ 80 million plus add-ons.

Once handed over to Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzk, it was immediately rejected as too short, raising the notion in Signal Iduna Park that United do not take Dortmund’s demands seriously or act if they do not want to implement the signature.
The Bundesliga side was adamant across the window that Sancho would be kept.
Dortmund set an August 10 deadline for United to assess their player’s 108 108m, but after United failed to meet that deadline, Jork said in August that the German giants would keep Sancho for another season.
United made an offer late, but Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watts turned it down.
And as recently as Friday, Dortmund’s sports director Michael Jকrk reiterated the German club’s position on the matter and added: ‘Everything that can be said about this has already been said. Nothing will change that. ‘
Dortmund midfielder Axel Witsell and captain Marco Reyes are among the players who are happy that Sancho has been in the club for at least another year.
United also failed in their bid to sign a high-profile option, with Barcelona refusing to trade Dembele on a loan agreement and only interested in a permanent transfer.
However, the club was able to build on the offensive force on the day, with 33-year-old Uruguayan forward Edinson Cavani leaving Paris Saint-Germain in the summer to join a two-year deal.

United also failed to sign Dembele, but brought in former PSG striker Edinson Cavani.
Sancho has been in hot water this week after being forced to apologize for the lockout rules by attending Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham’s birthday party.
Ben Chilwell and about 20 others gathered for the forward’s wonderful team and their arrival at the England camp this week against Wales, Belgium and Denmark will be delayed. Subsequently delayed.
Sancho posted on Instagram: ‘I apologize for breaking official guidelines and although I was unaware of the number of attendees, I took full responsibility for my activities.
“I have learned from this that I will make sure to move forward.”
