Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho is edging closer to a move to Man Utd with negotiations entering an ‘advanced’ stage, according to reports.
A report in German publication Bild yesterday evening claimed that negotiations between the two clubs were ‘picking up speed’ while Dortmund expected that Man Utd would pay their €120m demands.
And now The Guardian claim that Man Utd ‘are in advanced negotiations’ with the Bundesliga side over a deal worth ‘an initial €100m (£90m)’ which would set a transfer record for an English player.
Their talks over a move for Sancho have ‘intensified in recent weeks’ and there would be ‘a further €20m potentially due in performance-related add-ons’.
The report adds that Dortmund ‘are keen to resolve his future as soon as possible to enable them to purchase a replacement’ while Sancho is ‘believed to be open to the move’. (Vanguard)
