Borussia Dortmund are reportedly willing to cash in on Jadon Sancho this summer in order to bring in some much-needed funds, with their CEO even confirming an informal “gentleman’s agreement” to let him leave for the right price.

According to BILD (via Sport Witness) and ESPN, that right price is a right €100m, with Chelsea set to rival Liverpool in the race to the young superstar’s signature.

Neither club’s interest is new of course, with Sancho long on the radar as one of the best young footballers in the world. Manchester United failed with an attempt to bring the 21-year-old to Old Trafford last summer after refusing to meet his then-asking price of €120m, but BVB apparently believe that the discounted price for this summer will garner more interest in Sancho, including from United. Unlike last summer, there is also no deadline by which a deal must be completed.

Sancho has made 34 appearances for Dortmund in all competitions this season, and has scored 12 goals while providing 18 assists. His current contract runs through 2023. (Ed.note: so we’re at the magic two-year expiration mark, which is when values are maximized.)
