Manchester United will face Championship side Coventry City in the FA Cup semi-finals after a dramatic victory over Liverpool on Sunday. 

The Red Devils ran out 4-3 winners over the Reds after extra-time, in a game that will go down as one of the most exciting in recent memory.

Off the pitch, it remains to be seen what will happen with winger Jadon Sancho.

The Englishman is currently on loan at Borussia Dortmund after a public fallout with United boss Erik ten Hag, but it is still unclear where he will play next term.

According to Sky Sports Germany via 90min, Dortmund would be willing to pay around £30 million to sign the player permanently this summer.

Sancho first joined United from Dortmund in 2021 after impressing in Germany, but he struggled when returning to England.

In total he has played 82 times for the Red Devils, scoring 12 goals and providing six assists.

Sancho faces an extremely uncertain future

Sancho was ousted from the first team squad at Old Trafford in September last year, after publicly criticising Ten Hag on social media.

The winger had been left out of United’s matchday squad to face Arsenal and, after the Dutchman cited Sancho’s attitude in training as a reason, the player responded on social media.

He has since refused to apologise, and was therefore sent back to Dortmund in January, on a loan deal until the end of the current campaign.

Despite Dortmund’s desire to sign the player permanently, the report claims that the German side have reservations about his wage demands.

Sancho is said to be open to the prospect of a permanent switch, but his current wages of almost £300,000-per-week could prove to be an obstacle during negotiations.

The German side would be willing to pay £30 million for the England international, the report claims, which would represent a huge loss on the £73 million that United paid for the player three years ago.
