Manchester United have lodged a first official offer of €70m for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, according to reports.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has once again made the signing of the England international a priority after missing out on him last summer and there now appears to have been movement in negotiations.
According to German newspaper BILD, United have firmed up their interest in Sancho and have now made a bid of €70m for the 21-year-old who has two years left on his Dortmund contract.

However, the Bundesliga club are reportedly holding out for a fee of €90m. There is believed to be a willingness on both sides to get a deal done with Sancho keen on a return to the Premier League.
Football journalist Fabrizio Romano also claims Manchester United have an agreement with Sancho on a contract until 2026.
Sancho scored eight goals and made 11 assists in 26 Bundesliga appearances for Borussia Dortmund last season, also scoring twice in the DFB Pokal final against RB Leipzig.

At last. This has been the most tedious transfer saga in years, but it finally appears Manchester United are getting somewhere with their pursuit of Sancho, a player who will significantly improve their squad.
Given how many times it has been reported that personal terms between Sancho and United have been discussed it might be reasonable to presume that this deal will move rather quickly from this point on.

United would be wise to get this deal done before Euro 2020, when Sancho’s stock could rise further should he impress for England.
This signing would be Manchester United’s biggest statement in the transfer market since the signing of Paul Pogba in 2016 and would allow the club to focus on other areas of their squad in need of strengthening (cough… central defence… cough).
