Jadon Sancho’s Wages Will Soar To £190,000 Per Week In New Borussia Dortmund Deal
Jadon Sancho will receive a £190,000-a-week payday in his new deal with Borussia Dortmund, according to stunning reports.
The highly rated English winger, 19, enjoyed a superb season in Germany as Dortmund fell two points short of beating arch-rivals Bayern Munich to the Bundesliga crown.
And Sancho, who was heavily linked with Manchester United this summer, has reportedly signed a new long-term deal with the German side.
According to the Daily Mail, the England international would see his salary bumped up to £10m a year.
Dortmund are keen to fend off European rivals from snapping up Sancho, whose current deal with the club is set to expire in 2022.
The CIES Football Observatory last week placed the Dortmund star as the fifth most valuable player in the world at €159.4m, which was only €8m less than Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.
Sancho made 43 appearances across all competitions last season and scored 13 times and assisted an impressive 19 times.
The former Manchester City youth product also scored in Dortmund's 2-0 German Super Cup victory over Bayern Munich earlier this month.
Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has admitted that a 'super club' had made an approach for Sancho.
The 60-year-old German said: "A chief of one of the super clubs asked me back in spring if there was a chance [to sign Sancho], but I told him straight away he should forget about it and he never contacted me again.
"He knew I meant what I said."
According to Watzke, Dortmund would hold talks with Sancho at the end of the season in the hopes of tying him down to a new deal.
But the Englishman might have already put pen to paper as Dortmund prepare to mount a serious title challenge this season.
The German side climbed to the top of the Bundesliga after their 5-1 thrashing of Augsburg in their opening league clash last Saturday.
Should Sancho leave Dortmund instead of signing a new deal?
