According to a report from the Sun, Man City could stand to make a huge profit off rival interest in former attacker Jadon Sancho – with the club guaranteed 15 per cent of any future fee paid for the player.
The Englishman, who has bagged a noteworthy 14 goals and 15 assists in the Bundesliga this season over 21 starts in total, could leave Borussia Dortmund in the summer for £100 million as bitter rivals Man United and Chelsea reportedly chase a deal for the ace.
Before the nationwide lockdown, it appears both City rivals were showcasing an interest, with the two clubs placing Sancho ‘high‘ on their wanted list.
Should City hike Sancho's price tag or bring him back to the Etihad?
Bring him back
Make as much money as possible
Taking this into account, City may well take advantage of this interest in our former prodigy to make a huge profit – and this report claims that we could start a bidding war to hike the price of his signature.
Hypothetically, if Sancho were to leave Dortmund for £100 million, as quoted in the Sun, we would stand to make a cool £15 million profit off his inserted sell-on clause – but the Sky Blues could also hike the 20-year-old’s price tag by placing a bid of their own.
Another clause was also inserted into the deal which let him leave for Germany back in 2017, an agreement that if any Premier League clubs were to place an official bid for Sancho, our hierarchy would have to be informed of the negotiations.
As interest in Sancho heightens, City’s potential to make a huge profit grows, especially if we were to throw a spanner in the works by placing huge bids for the youngster.
