MANCHESTER CITY can land a bigger jackpot if they force a Jadon Sancho bidding war this summer.

The England winger, 20, is high on the wanted list for Manchester United and Chelsea and a £100million fee was being quoted before the lockdown.

A clause in Sancho’s deal could see Man City hike his price and start a bidding war

That alone would earn first club City a cool £15m, as they are guaranteed 15 per cent of any future fee following his exit to Borussia Dortmund three years ago.

But another clause was also inserted in the £9.5m deal that if an offer comes in from any UK club at any stage Etihad bosses have to be informed.

It was intended to avoid City missing out should they try to re-sign academy star Sancho.

Although boss Pep Guardiola has made no firm noises about wanting to bring him back.

But if City want to try and hike their cut even higher, they could also throw in a cheeky offer to send the price soaring.

Etihad playmaker Kevin De Bruyne, meanwhile, admits his creative nature sometimes brings out the beast in him.


The Belgian star, 28, told BT Sport’s Early Kick-Off: “I get angry at myself all the time.

“I don’t think people see it on the pitch because I can cover it.”

Sancho suitors United and Chelsea are also set to lock horns over Angel Gomes.

The Old Trafford midfielder, 19, is out of contract this summer and has yet to sign the £30,000-a-week deal on offer.
