Dortmund are said to be open to selling Sancho for around £80million but are determined not to lose Haaland this summer despite the fact a release clause in his contract means he could leave for £64million in 2022.
Sancho, 21, has given Dortmund three years of top-level first-team service, contributing 50 goals and 64 assists in 137 senior appearances and helping the club to win the DFB Pokal this season.
The Bundesliga giants are more open to parting ways at the right price knowing they will make huge profit on the £8m they paid Manchester City to sign him in 2017.
The German outfit wanted £108m for Sancho last summer but will accept significantly less this time around and will not be as obdurate to a deal.
Yet that they are willing to do a deal for Sancho is problematic for Chelsea and their aspirations of signing his team-mate Haaland, Eurosport report.
The Norwegian centre-forward has been sublime for Dortmund since joining from Red Bull Salzburg for around £18m in January 2020.
Since then, the 20-year-old has scored 57 goals and laid on 15 assists in just 59 games and his worth has soared to over eight times the amount his club paid for him 18 months ago.
But Dortmund do not want to lose Haaland ahead of Marco Rose’s first season as a manager and have made it explicitly clear they will be bullied into a sale.
The £150m-rated Scandinavian is under contract until June 2024 and so Dortmund are in a strong negotiating position, with Eurosport saying it would take an extraordinary amount of money to change their minds.
It is claimed sources in Germany are convinced that no such fee will arrive this year and that the striker will play another season of Bundesliga football.
The west London outfit are looking to get a jump on their rivals by laying the groundwork for that deal early.
Even in 2022, a deal will not be cheap with Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola said to be asking for wages of around £300,000 a week, which would make him Chelsea’s highest-paid player.
Eurosport and the Telegraph both say a player-plus-cash deal has been explored by the Champions League winners which would include Tammy Abraham but Dortmund want only a straight fee.
Sancho meanwhile is seen as far more likely to move this summer and Dortmund will not stand in his way of a move to Manchester if United meet their asking price.
United are also keen on Haaland and presumably would love the idea of reuniting Sancho and the striker at Old Trafford, though must beat a whole host of clubs including Chelsea to sign the former next year.
