Most expensive deal since COVID 

After four years at the club, Jadon Sancho leaves Borussia Dortmund and joins Manchester United “subject to successful completion of all required medical tests and examinations”—BVB confirmed the agreement after months of negotiations. Dortmund signed Sancho for €8 million from Manchester City in 2017 and, with the sale, has made one of the biggest profits in football history

According to the ad-hoc statement, which Dortmund has to issue as a traded company, the English record champions will pay an initial fee of €85 million. Man City reportedly receive 15% of the fee—that option was included in 2017 when Sancho originally joined the Black and Yellows.

Sancho becomes the second most expensive transfer in United’s history behind Paul Pogba—in the Bundesliga, he is the second most expensive sale after Ousmane Dembélé to Barcelona. That transfer was also negotiated by BVB bosses Michael Zorc and Hans-Joachim Watzke

Sancho the most expensive transfer since the outbreak of COVID-19

Rumors about Sancho joining Man United date back to March 2020, which became concrete last summer, but a deal fell through in August after the Red Devils refused to pay Dortmund’s asking price of €120 million. With one year less on Sancho’s contract in Dortmund, the fee is significantly less than what the Black and Yellows could have earned last season. 

Sancho now replaces Kai Havertz as the most expensive player since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has had significant financial consequences for football clubs worldwide. Chelsea signed the German national team player in 2020 for €80 million from Bayer Leverkusen.
