Manchester United have begun negotiating a deal for Jadon Sancho

Manchester United is forging ahead with talks to sign Jadon Sancho, as optimism grows that a deal can be completed. Negotiations on the 21-year-old have begun in earnest, and United has been told that Borussia Dortmund will accept a lower offer than last summer’s asking price.

Discussions stalled a year ago when Dortmund requested €120 million for the winger, leaving no room for negotiation, but various reports indicate a readiness to find a solution this time. There is still work to be done on the fee, with the two teams now disagreeing on valuation. United is thought to be willing to spend £80 million — a figure that was initially communicated in Germany as being amenable to Dortmund.

Meanwhile, Rashford posted a picture of himself and Sancho in their first training session back with the national team, calling the Borussia Dortmund sensation his “Little bro”. This led to a lot of speculation from the fans. He continues to be heavily linked with a return to English football, however, and this interaction on Twitter has got United supporters buzzing.

Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc recently stated that the club and Sancho had reached an agreement for the 21-year-old to leave this summer.

“We already had a gentleman’s arrangement with Jadon last year that he may switch under specific conditions,” Zorc explained to ARD.

“He’s been with us for a few years now. This arrangement, however, does not exist with Erling [Haaland].”

Sancho, Harry Kane, Declan Rice, Trippier, and Pau Torres, make up Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s dream £300 million transfer wishlist this summer. With Sancho, Rice, Trippier, and Kane among the prospective summer signings for Manchester United, the club’s international contingent might grow dramatically, returning the club to a period when they dominated the England dressing room.
United will keep a close eye on England in the Euros. Long summer ahead for Ole and the United board as they need to revamp their squad.
