Jadon Sancho has agreed to a huge new contract with Borussia Dortmund, per BBC, but Manchester United fans aren’t letting that deter them from their summer 2020 dream.
It’s beyond obvious at this point that the Red Devils need a right-sided attacker, and at just 19 years of age, Dortmund’s Sancho fits the youth revolution Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is building at Old Trafford.
He has scored 16 times and provided 25 assists for the German outfit’s senior side, and has already earned six England caps.
The teenager was linked with a switch to Manchester this summer, but the interest in the long-term target was reportedly cooled, and he is now set to sign a whopping £190,00-a-week deal at the Westfalenstadion, say BBC.
Surprisingly though, fans are still feeling optimistic they could make a move for the wing wizard in 2020, pointing out the fact that several other players have extended their contracts in recent times only to earn their club a higher transfer fee when they leave.
For example, Harry Maguire signed a new Leicester deal in September of 2018 only to join up with the Red Devils this summer.
Take a look at some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Similar to Maguire….

Every time Dortmund do this the player ends up leaving next summer. It’s basically to keep them another year.

Means nothing. Maguire signed a new deal last summer.

Just raises the cost next summer while providing Sancho security if he has a bad season. This is not an issue.
