BORUSSIA DORTMUND are demanding Manchester United pay a third of Jadon Sancho’s wages, according to reports.
Talks between the clubs are progressing over a potential loan move this January.
Sancho, 23, is open to ending his Old Trafford nightmare and rejoining his former club.
But Dortmund are not willing to pay his entire £290,000-a-week salary as it is out of their budget, claim the Mail.
Therefore, the German giants are demanding Man Utd pay £100,000 of his wages every week.
It means the Red Devils will hand Sancho around £2.5m to play elsewhere until the end of this season should they agree to the proposal.
However, United would save £5m from getting a portion of his wages off the books, which will help the club meet FFP regulations.
Reports suggest that there will be no obligation to buy Sancho included in the deal.
But Dortmund may have to pay more for the loan if clauses based on appearances made and Champions League qualification are met.
Sancho has not played for Man Utd since a public fall out with Erik ten Hag in September.
The exiled £73m star claimed the manager made him a “scapegoat”.
Sancho refused to apologise and has since been banned from training and all first-team facilities.
Meanwhile, Dortmund are closing in on the loan signing of Chelsea star Ian Maatsen.
