Man United set for £39 million loss on exit-linked star as new asking price is revealed

Manchester United have named their price for this player tipped to depart in the summer.

Manchester United have an important stretch ahead of them as they look to make up as much ground as possible in the Premier League. The Red Devils are currently sixth in the table, and while a top four finish is not impossible, it is slipping further out of their reach.

United’s agonising 4-3 loss to Chelsea on Thursday has put pressure on Erik ten Hag’s shoulders, with an Old Trafford clash against Liverpool coming up next. With just one win in their last five fixtures, discussions are once again swirling around the Dutchman’s future and whether he will remain with the Reds next season.

But regardless of whether the club opt to stick or twist with their manager, they are in for a busy summer transfer window. A significant squad restructure is reported to be on the cards following the arrival of Sir Jim Ratcliffe, and a number of senior figures are expected to be given the boot.

Along with those approaching the final months of their contracts, United are considering cashing in on others in order to make room within the squad and on the wage bill. Jadon Sancho is one glaring example after his exile from the first team and eventual loan move to Dortmund.

The winger attracted worldwide attention during his first spell with the Bundesliga outfit and United beat everyone else to the punch. They signed Sancho in 2021 for £73 million but they are now braced to make a significant loss on him.

According to Sky Sports Germany, the 24-year-old is eager to stay with Dortmund permanently, having settled back in well since rejoining in January. BVB would also like to keep hold of Sancho but the asking price is reportedly out of their reach.

The report claims that United are looking for ‘at least’ €40 million (£34m) to sanction the permanent exit of the Old Trafford outcast. Other prices have been listed since 2024 rolled in, but this is now lower than previous figures as the club seemingly look to push for a sale.

Dortmund have ‘not yet completely given up’ hope on bringing the England international back full-time but the transfer fee remains a roadblock, despite United already setting themselves up for a hefty loss.
