BORUSSIA DORTMUND have told Manchester United they can have Jadon Sancho only if they cough up £108million, according to reports.
The Bundesliga club are adamant they will not entertain any offers that fall below their asking price.
United are huge admirers of the rapid England winger with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopeful of bolstering his attack with at least one big name in the summer.
Sancho, 20, is keen for a switch to Old Trafford having already held talks with United chiefs.
It is reported in German publication Ruhr Nachrichten that the England superstar has already agreed personal terms and a fee between the two clubs remains the only stumbling block.
Sancho is expected to sign a five-year deal in the red half of Manchester worth a lucrative £140,000-a-week.
That is then likely to increase to £200,000-a-week over the course of his deal.
Despite United’s keenness to complete the transfer, it is believed they are stumbling over his fee for numerous reasons.
One includes the financial impact coronavirus has had on football with clubs forced to tighten the pursestrings this summer.
It was reported how United’s debts rocketed from £127.4m to a whopping £429.1m due to Covid-19 and the lack of Champions League football.
Solskjaer is also weighing up whether he needs to fork out such big money on Sancho following the emergence of Mason Greenwood.
The striker scored twice in the 5-2 win over Bournemouth with the youngster forging a hugely prolific partnership with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.
That lightning-quick attack also includes Bruno Fernandes who has been superb since his arrival from Sporting Lisbon in January.
Youngster Daniel James is also waiting in the wings but could be loaned out next season to help his development.
Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish remains another option and will be available for around half the price as he looks set to leave the Midlands club this summer.
