Man City to net eye-watering freebie from fervent rivals Man Utd’s Jadon Sancho transfer.

Manchester City are set to pocket £11.2million from Jadon Sancho’s switch to arch-rivals Manchester United.

Sancho, 21, is settling in on a return to English football after United eventually came to an understanding with Borussia Dortmund over the enormous transfer.

The Red Devils have been hunting the England international for more than 12 months, but after collapsing in their pursuance in 2020, they are close to a better result this time around.

After declining to meet Dortmund’s £108m valuations last summer, they have now accepted a £72.9m arrangement with Sancho set to formally join his new club after England’s Euro 2020 campaign.

Sancho returns to Manchester four years after opting to bequeath City in quest of consistent football in the Bundesliga.

Dortmund paid £8m back in 2017, scoring 50 times and registering 64 assists in his 137 appearances in the black and yellow.

They will pocket a tremendous profit but will be required to pay 15 percent of the profit back to City, as per the understanding that saw him move to Signal Iduna.


That amounts to £9.74m, which will come straight from the transfer fee United pays to Dortmund upon the conclusion of the move.

According to the Telegraph, City are also in line for a solidarity payment of £1.46m thanks to the part they played in Sancho’s development.

His very first club, Watford – where he spent the ages of 12 to 15 – are also set to make a £2.19m solidarity payment for the same cause.

According to the rules governing solidarity fees, clubs at which a player has trained within the ages of 12 and 23 are due five percent of a fee and is distributed proportionally based on how long they were there.

Those payments will go on top of the original transfer fee, bringing United’s total outlay to £76.5m.

Sancho has earlier spoken about the reasons behind his decision to leave the Etihad aged just 17, insisting it was the best move for his career at the time.

He told SoccerBible two years ago: 

“When I left City, there were a lot of people that doubted me – they were like ‘oh you shouldn’t have left Pep Guardiola’ – but I just thought that it was the best thing for me.

“I still have love for Pep, I still love everyone at the club, because they took me from Watford and helped me develop into who I am today, and obviously going to Dortmund.

“They helped with a bigger step for me – making my debut. And now I’ve made my debut I’ve expressed myself and now I’m in the position where I am today.

“I’m just so grateful to everyone who’s been a part of my journey so far. Watford as well, started off life at Watford, so it’s been really good.”
