The transfer of Jadon Sancho to Manchester United for 85 million euros plus ten in variables is almost a reality in the absence of the official announcement. One of the first great operations of the summer market that was almost sung and that, in addition, it directly affects Real Madrid. It does it in two strategic players. On the one hand in Varane, because the disbursement by the English attacker that United has made, close to 100 million euros, limits the coffers of the entity to undertake the signing of Varane. On the other hand, with this move, Borussia confirms its intention not to sell Haaland this summer, Well, if he did, he would be left without his two attacking players with more offensive power.
In the case of Varane and Real Madrid, all options, renewal or sale, are open. Although the player wants to renew upwards and Madrid has presented an offer in accordance with the decrease in income due to the pandemic, the talks continue and sources that have participated in them confirm to AS that no decision has been made. Not only United is an option for Varane, so is PSG. In the case of the French team He has already profiled three signings, Wijnaldum, Achraf and Donnarumma, the last two pending official status. Hiring Varane and keeping Mbappé would be the icing on the cake to a winning project.
Information comes from England stating that United would have financial problems to pay 60 or 70 million for Varane, which is the figure that Real Madrid intends. As AS advanced, the Mancuniana entity is more for the work of a trick with Pogba. The French player is very receptive, as confirmed to AS from his environment, but Madrid’s position is clear: it needs cash in cash rather than adding an astronomical salary like Pogba’s (12 million net at United).
The other name affected by the transfer of Jadon Sancho from Borussia to United is Haaland. The entity of the basin of the Rhur will become even more so now in its idea of not selling it. A fact that does not necessarily have to be bad for Real Madrid, since in the summer of 2022 that agreement between Mino Raiola and Borussia enters into force for which it has to come out at a reasonable price. To sell it this summer, Dortmund has set a symbolic, unattainable price of 200 million euros.
The summer of 2022 could thus be definitive for Madrid. If you can’t buy from Mbappe this summer because PSG refuse to negotiate, the French star It could come at zero cost (if you don’t renew). On the other hand, Madrid would make an economic effort to sign Haaland, the forward of the future, with whom the times have accompanied him, perhaps largely due to the friendship between Florentino and Borussia CEO Hans-Joaquim Watzke. And, finally, Florentino’s big bet is to be able to inaugurate the new Bernabéu for the start of the new season. Three bombings in sight and a boost for the future of Madrid.
