Barcelona admitted financial difficulties made it difficult for them to pursue “blockbuster” Sancho. Therefore, Man Utd has a great advantage to owning a star worth £ 130 million currently playing for Dortmund.
In the latest interview with ESPN, Vice President Jordi Cardoner shared about Barcelona’s summer 2020 transfer plan. Mr. Jordi Cardoner affirmed that thanks to his strong financial background, Barca was not plagued by Covid-19.
However, declining revenue forced Barca to carefully calculate the transfer plans. At the Summer 2020 market, Barca will exchange players instead of spending money on shopping.
According to sources from the Catalonia press, Arturo Vidal, Samuel Umtiti and Philippe Coutinho are the stars that Barca will discuss in two major deals: Lautaro Martinez of Inter Milan and PSG’s Neymar.
With Barca withdrawing from major purchases, MU is now completely comfortable in the race to be signed by Jadon Sancho. The Manchester club is confident to activate and succeed in this deal soon.
In the 2019-20 season, Sancho maintained a booming style with 17 goals, 19 assists after 35 matches for Dortmund in all competitions. Dortmund is not trying to keep Sancho but will let the English player leave if he receives 130 million euros.
According to another development, AS Roma are planning to rescue Alexis Sanchez from Man Utd. Coach Paulo Fonseca intends to borrow Sanchez because he believes he will fit the tactical scheme he is building in Roma.
However, the biggest obstacle is the salary of the Chilean striker. Sanchez is currently receiving 11 million euros a year at Old Trafford while Roma are only willing to pay him a salary of 4.5 million euros.
The solution to this problem is that MU pays a part of Sanchez’s salary as in the loan contract at Inter. Of course, the likelihood of a successful sale depends on the intention of coach Sanch Solskjaer’s Sanchez to use Sanchez.
Alexis Sanchez arrived at MU from Arsenal but did not meet expectations. Last year, MU let Sanchez to Inter on loan. Here, Sanchez only scored 1 goal after 15 matches should face the possibility of being returned to Old Trafford when the season closes.
