Manchester United target Jadon Sancho has signed an improved long-term contract with Borussia Dortmund which takes his wages to about £190,000 a week, including bonuses.
The new contract is a massive increase on the England winger’s former terms that saw him earn £75,000 until the summer of 2022.
It is believed that the new deal is an effort by Dortmund to reward the much sought after teenager after he refused to leave the Bundesliga side following interest across Europe.
The 19-year-old, who was heavily linked with a return to the premier league with Manchester United reportedly interested in securing his services, scored 13 goals last season as Dortmund finished second behind Bayern Munich.
He already has a goal to his name this season after finding the back of the net in Dortmund’s 2018/2019 Bundesliga season-opening 5-1 win over Augsburg on last Saturday.
Sancho, who was signed from Manchester City in 2017, started his career at Watford’s academy. He made his England debut against Croatia in October 2018 and has six caps.
