By Vanessa Ekpereka (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Manchester United are increasingly confident of finally landing England international Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, according to reports.
United have been in hot pursuit of Sancho for quite some time and were close to signing him last summer, only for Dortmund to stand firm by wanting north of £100million for their star player.
But according to The Athletic, United have now begun negotiations with Dortmund over Sancho’s services and have been given hope that the German outfit will accept a lower asking price this time round.
There is still plenty to be done on the fee front for United to get their man, but the report claims there is a willingness between both parties to finally come to an agreement.
United are understood to be willing to fork out £80m on the England international – which initially left Dortmund responsive – but the Bundesliga side now want an additional £20m in achievable add-ons.
However, talks so far point to a compromise between the two clubs and United are reportedly positive about their hopes right now.
The Red Devils want to try and seal a deal for the former Manchester City youth product before the Euros kick off in seven days time, but they know that will be a difficult task.
