Several sporting competitions around the world have been suspended or cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic and because of it, the revenue of various clubs have taken a huge hit. During these times, some teams have asked their players to lower their salaries. Despite this, Dortmund are holding firm in their asking price for Sancho, knowing that it could have an impact on the deal.
Jadon Sancho joined Borussia Dortmund in 2017 and since then has been one of the most exciting and prolific young players in the world. Even Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand, has asked the club to sign the youngster along with Spurs captain Harry Kane if they want to be involved in the big leagues again.
