Man Utd agree to huge Jadon Sancho wage hike that will put winger above Bruno Fernandes
Manchester United are willing to make Jadon Sancho one of the highest-paid players at the club, according to reports. United are believed to be close to completing a deal for the 21-year-old after submitting an improved bid of £77million to Borussia Dortmund for the forward.
Sancho could even complete his protracted move to Old Trafford before the end of Euro 2020, with Man Utd much closer to matching the Bundesliga club’s £85m valuation this year than last.
The 21-year-old England international has scored 50 goals in his sparkling career for Dortmund after moving to the German club from Manchester City’s academy in 2017.
And United feel that he will add further X factor to the team’s attack, despite fears that Sancho’s arrival could hamper the development of Mason Greenwood.
When Sancho does arrive at Old Trafford it is reported by the Sunday People that he will become one of the best-paid players at the club.
It is claimed that the club are willing to offer wages as high as £275,000-a-week.
And that would make him one of the highest-paid outfield players at the club, above the standout player from last season Bruno Fernandes, with only goalkeeper David de Gea and midfielder Paul Pogba earning more in the United squad.

United are willing to pay enormous wages rather than enormous transfer fees, with owner Joel Glazer explaining earlier this summer that the club are reticent to set a precedent for over-spending in transfer negotiations.
“Our goal is to win every competition we compete in, and we will continue to invest in our Academy and in the transfer market to support the manager in an effort to meet the club’s goals,” he said.
“It [debt and dividend payments] has never stood in the way of us pursuing players or transfers on the pitch.
“We may have walked away from transfers at times because the other side wanted an outlandish number. And while it’s easy to pay it that one time, it does have consequences.
“You do it once and the next person expects it, and then the next person expects it. And that’s not good, ultimately, for the club. So, we think that we’re able to accomplish all these things and still have.
“We’re going to keep investing on the pitch, which we did last year, and we plan on doing it meaningfully this year. So, we feel that we’re in a good spot.”

Sancho has yet to feature for Gareth Southgate’s England at Euro 2020, with the wide-man left on the bench despite his team’s lack of attacking threat during Friday evening’s goalless draw with Scotland.
