Borussia Dortmund has reportedly told that there are no Ballon d’Or clauses added to any deal for Jadon Sancho. This is according to the news coming from The Athletic.

Manchester United are the favorites for the signature of the English forward and have said to launch a £67 million bid for him. However, Dortmund was quick to reject the offer and expects at least £80 million for Sancho.

According to Athletic, Manchester United wanted to add a Ballon d’Or clause to the Jadon Sancho deal. But Dortmund is said to be against this.


Multiple sources have reported that Manchester United had launched a bid for signing Jadon Sancho, but was turned away by Dortmund. Both clubs have differences over the valuation they had for the 21-year-old. As a result, Manchester United is back on the drawing board, rethinking their future course of action.

One key point is the inclusion of the Ballon d’Or clause by Manchester United. The Red Devils wanted to insert the clause in the deal, which will be activated if Sancho finished in the top three in the voting.

However, Dortmund has rejected any such clauses. They are not interested in individual performances and wanted add-ons based on the team performance. This would include the likes of winning trophies like Premier League, Champions League, or FA Cup.


More details are surfacing regarding the rejected bid made by Manchester United for Sancho. Transfer guru, Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that United and Sancho have agreed on personal terms. The only thing remaining is for both the clubs to agree on the deal.

This will not be easy as last year’s experience will suggest. Manchester United tried to force Dortmund to sell Sancho for a lower fee, but the Germans did not budge and no deals were made. However, Dortmund has reduced its valuation for Sancho, especially after taking a financial hit due to the pandemic. The Black and Yellows are ready to sell Sancho, only if the club is ready to pay more than £80 million and also complete the deal by end of July.

Sancho is currently preparing for Euro 2020 with England. The winger is fighting for his starting spot, in a team filled with great talents. England will kick off their campaign on the 13th of June when they face Croatia on the group stage.
