German football expert Raphael Honigstein has claimed Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho will possibly move to Manchester United in the summer.
While speaking on the Transfer Talk podcast, Honigstein ruled out the possibility of the Englishman signing for the Red Devils in the current transfer window.
“Everybody in Dortmund knows nothing will happen in January,”
“The player [Jadon Sancho] is not agitating for a move, there’s a very clear agreement that transfers of that magnitude at [Borussia] Dortmund will only happen in the summer.
“There was a big transfer announced in January a couple of years ago. That was Christian Pulisic [to Chelsea]. But remember, even his deal was the deal for the summer.
“So no one’s stopping [Manchester] United, if they went out, and felt really confident, to say, ‘let’s do this deal now, let’s make sure we get in now’. And maybe then announce it at the end of January. That’s inherently possible.”
Honigstein added: “The offers and the real negotiations will start closer to towards spring when clubs are perhaps in a better position to understand how much money they’ll have available for their transfer window in the summer.”
The Englishman has netted only twice in the Bundesliga this season, having undergone a massive dip in form since his move to United fell through last summer.
His current deal with Dortmund expires in 2022.
