BORUSSIA DORTMUND “are expecting a bid of £109million” from Manchester United for Jadon Sancho.
The England international is one of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s top summer transfer targets as he looks to continue rebuilding the Red Devils.
And the star’s Bundesliga employers seem to believe they are on the verge of receiving a huge offer if United qualify for the Champions League, according to German newspaper Bild.
Solskjaer’s side face a fight to secure a top four finish with just three Premier League matches left to play.
Leicester are currently ahead of them in fourth on goal difference with the two due to face each other on the final day at the King Power Stadium, while Chelsea are four points clear having played a game more.
United chief Ed Woodward knows reaching the Champions League could prove crucial in his pursuit of Solskjaer’s key transfer targets once the window re-opens.
And Sancho himself is unlikely to want to drop down to play in the Europa League.
And according to Bild, Dortmund are expecting United to table an offer of £109m if they do qualify.
Sancho, who came through the ranks at Manchester City until he left for Germany, is believed to be keen on a return to Manchester.
And personal terms are not expected to be a problem between the club and winger.
The 20-year-old was benched by Dortmund boss Lucien Favre for the final two matches of the Bundesliga campaign.
And that could suggest he is already planning for a future without the attacker.
Despite failing to sign him a year ago, everything now looks like it is in place for a deal to take place in the upcoming weeks should a fee be agreed.
