Man City are set for a £15M pay-out from Jadon Sancho's United move

BREAKING NEWS: Manchester City are set for a £15MILLION pay-out from Jadon Sancho’s record-breaking United move as details of a sell-on clause from his Etihad exit three years ago are revealed

  • Man United are on the verge of sealing a record-breaking deal for Jadon Sancho 
  • Arch-rivals City will benefit from the deal by receiving a £15million pay-out
  • City included a 15 per cent sell-on clause when they sold him three years ago
  • England star Sancho is expected to sign for United in a deal worth £108m 

Manchester City are set to pocket upwards of £15million once Jadon Sancho’s record move to rivals Manchester United goes through.

United are in the process of negotiating a financial package with Borussia Dortmund that is expected to eclipse £100m with additional clauses.

And City will make a significant amount on that transfer after installing a 15 per cent sell-on clause when Sancho departed the Etihad Stadium three years ago.

The Borussia Dortmund star is on the verge of signing for Man United in a £108million deal

Pep Guardiola’s City are set to pocket £15m from the Sancho deal once it goes through

The clause pertains to profit made on the sale, one that saw the 20-year-old eventually move to Germany for a fee in the region of £8m.

His stock has risen dramatically since then, becoming one of the most talented young wingers in Europe and earning 11 England caps under Gareth Southgate.

Sancho is ready to sign a five-year contract at United after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer earmarked the forward as a top priority to add to his attacking armoury.

Although City did not want to lose Sancho in 2017, the timing of his switch to Old Trafford will now act as something of a financial fillip given they are spending an initial £20.9m on Ferran Torres from Valencia.

Torres, 20, was putting the finishing touches to his transfer on Tuesday, with Pep Guardiola signalling City’s aggressive intentions in the transfer market. 

Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake will follow for £41m to bolster their back line ahead of next season.

Another winger, Jack Harrison, is again set to depart on a season-long loan to newly-promoted Leeds United after an impressive title-winning campaign.

Harrison recorded six goals and eight assists as Leeds won the Championship and Marcelo Bielsa wanted to land the 22-year-old for their first year back in the Premier League.

Leeds will have the option to sign Harrison permanently next summer, although he is expected to pen a contract extension at City before a third loan move at Elland Road is completed.

City take a one-goal lead into their Champions League last-16 against Real Madrid at the Etihad Stadium on Friday night and on Tuesday they added teenage goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu to their squad as cover.

Despite restrictions surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, Real will jet into the North West 24 hours before kick-off and train at the Etihad on Thursday evening.

The LaLiga champions were tested on Monday and are expected to undergo the same checks again on Thursday ahead of the second leg. Real, whose striker Mariano Diaz tested positive for the virus last week, are exempt from quarantine rules.

Sergio Ramos is suspended but will join the travelling party, the captain allowed inside the changing room before kick-off but not on the bench thereafter. Ramos is likely to sit in City’s Tunnel Club hospitality area.
