From a sum of around 90 million euros plus bonuses in the event of success, the Dortmunders are ready to let the mega-deal go through the stage. The BVB bosses are in the ideal negotiating position. On the one hand, because they know that United cannot afford any more transfer embarrassment after the weeks of changing theater in summer 2020. On the other hand, because they trust Sancho to become one of THE superstars of the EM.
