Official | Borussia Dortmund sign Jadon Sancho from Manchester City

Borussia Dortmund have completed the signing of Manchester City youngster Jadon Sancho, beating Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur to the signature.

Reports from Manchester are that the fee is believed to be around €200,000, while both the Premier League clubs were priced out of the move after making the negotiation of compensation “almost impossible” according to sources close to The Independent.

However, Ruhr Nachrichten & Kicker both say that Borussia Dortmund paid Manchester City €7m to sign Sancho, which is understandable given he terminated his scholarship deal while Dortmund didn’t want to wait for the FA to intervene, instead paying City a bigger fee.

The 17-year-old walked out on his Manchester City scholarship last month, turning down a professional contract worth £30,000-per-week.

It’s since emerged that Bayern Munich were also interested in signing Sancho.
