Borussia Dortmund director Michael Zorc said yesterday that Jadon Sancho will not leave the club this summer but according to ex-Red Devils midfielder Owen Hargreaves, this is all bluff and the player will be at Manchester United next season.
The German side has set Sancho’s asking price at €120m, an amount the English side is not willing to part with at one go due to the financial circumstances amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Bluff! Calling the bluff, yeah,” Hargreaves said as quoted by Express.
“I think he will be a Man United player in a pretty short time. [Dortmund are] trying to get a bit more money out of it, that’s just the nature of the beast.
“Obviously they know United are really interested, they’re pretty heavy into negotiations.”
“But I think they’re bluffing, they know he’s going to leave at that price.”
The Red Devils might still be making a move for Sancho in the background, but rumors already claim they have set their sights somewhere else, with Juventus’ Douglas Costa being mentioned.
