Jadon Sancho ‘set to collect £350,000-a-week’ should he join Man United – making him the SECOND-HIGHEST paid player at Old Trafford behind David de Gea’s £375,000-a-week deal… and one of the top-five earners in the Premier League
Jadon Sancho is set to be one of the Premier League’s highest earners should his protracted move to Manchester United be completed this summer.
The Red Devils have resumed their interest in the Borussia Dortmund winger – after being rebuffed in their attempts 12 month ago as the two clubs couldn’t find a middle ground over a transfer fee.
United and Dortmund remain at loggerheads over a fee for Sancho with the latter rejecting a £67million bid on Thursday, as they demand £80m instead to part ways with their No 7.

Sancho has agreed personal terms worth £350,00-a-week to join the Red Devils this summer
Despite this setback, the Old Trafford outfit have agreed personal terms with Sancho. And according to the Guardian, the 21-year-old is set to be handed a five-year deal worth around £350,000-a-week.
In doing so, the England international would become the second-highest earner at the club – just shy of goalkeeper David de Gea’s £375,000-a-week deal.
In fact, Sancho’s astronomical figures would see him move into the top five highest earners in the English top flight – joining De Gea, Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£350,000) and Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling (£300,000). Sterling’s team-mate Kevin De Bruyne rounds out this list having signed improved terms on his old £300,000-a-week deal back in April.

As reported by Goal, Sancho is believed to currently earn £190,000-a-week at Dortmund so this would be a significant pay-rise should he return to England this transfer window.
However, for that deal to happen United must see eye-to-eye with Dortmund over a transfer fee.
Dortmund want £77m plus bonuses and want the fee paid over four years as opposed to United’s proposal to pay over five.
All parties are wary of transfer talks turning into another saga with Dortmund wanting business tied up by July 23 when their squad comes together for pre-season camp.
Dortmund have an agreement with Sancho that he can leave once his valuation is met and United are the main contenders for his signature.
The England winger admitted on Thursday that a move to Old Trafford has been the topic of conversation among his teammates as he prepares for the European Championship.
‘I’m cool about it. You know, there’s always going to be speculation, especially when you do well,’ Sancho said.
‘It’s just how you handle that on the pitch and just keep doing what you’re doing.’
Pressed whether he had spoken to the Manchester United contingent in the squad, he told talkSPORT: ‘Of course, all the boys have a lot of questions, you know.
‘Again, I just tell the boys: ”look, I’m just focused on football at the moment” and we just focus on the Euros, step by step.’
Dortmund expect interest in Sancho to increase during the Euros and so will bargain hard
