Paul Merson reported that former Arsenal footballer Jadon Sancho has said that he is not going to leave Borussia Dortmund for an exorbitant fee in the summer transfer window because of the current pandemic situation. He has been linked with a move to Manchester United for £100 million, a deal which would most likely make him the most expensive English football player of all time. However, the current COVID-19 outbreak worldwide has halted all sorts of football and it has put a significant pressure financially on the clubs. Merson, the former midfielder from Arsenal who reported Jadon’s move from Borrusia is of the belief that a huge amount of money transfers will suddenly disappear from the sport of football for some time.
Big money transfers may get off the table for a long period of time. If the financial situation stays like this, it will be difficult for the clubs to make payments to their staff and will be struggling to pay the players as well. Then the transfer deadline will arrive and they will not have the money for making the payment and there will be uproar.
Jadon Sancho is the product of the Watford academy and has become one of the hottest properties in football since he left Manchester United without even having any first-term appearance in his name in the year 2017. He has been able to adapt to life in Germany while playing for Borussia Dortmund completely. He has 31 impressive goals and 42 assists to his name in three Bundesliga seasons.
