English Premier League clubs Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea are all interested in Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho ahead of the resumption of the transfer window this summer and they all need to pay a record fee for him.
According to the report from popular German newspaper Sport Bild, the aforementioned Premier League clubs will have to pay €140m for Jadon Sancho if they want to sign him this summer.
That transfer fee would be a Premier League record as it would surpass the one that took Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba from Juventus to Old Trafford in the summer of 2016.
Manchester United paid €100m for Pogba to return to the Premier League from the Italian Serie A some four years ago.
Pogba had left the Red Devils in 2012 as a teenager as the Frenchman joined Italian giants Juventus on a free transfer. He spent four hugely successful years with the Turin giants before returning to the Theatre of Dreams.

Jadon Sancho is in a similar position to Paul Pogba after the England international left Premier League champions Manchester City to sign for Borussia Dortmund in 2017 and one year after the world-record move of Pogba from Juventus to Manchester United.
The 19-year-old winger has been a very good signing for Borussia Dortmund and his form for the former Champions League winners has led to several interest from his home country.
Real Madrid FC of Spain and French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) are also monitoring his situation.
For now, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool are the frontrunners for the player who has been able to spearhead the title challenge of Borussia Dortmund in the last two seasons.
Jadon Sancho has scored 14 goals and also provided 14 more goals in the German Bundesliga this season to fire his team to third place on the league table.
