Totally different situation though. Telles contract is running out and Porto will loss him next summer for free, so we clearly have the upper hand. Sancho though, he still has 3 years with Dortmund, they are not in hurry to sell.Telles, apparently Porto who had been insistent on a fixed price all summer caved to our offer. For what it's worth I also thought we should have moved on from that deal and was surprised when hardball worked.
Yeah we should have moved on from Sancho way earlier but it's somewhat placating that we eventually did and am excited to see what the new signings do. Dortmund can do one if they think anyone is paying more than what we offered. It was already a very generous offer
