The news have gone viral about Jadon Sancho’s personal terms agreement with English Premier League outfit Man United, and there is no doubt that it’s a major progress in the bid to snap him up.
Man United are keen on the England international winger who has proven his quality in the German Bundesliga with Dortmund.
The deal dragged with different speculations now there is a stand in the bid to land the star player as personal terms have been agreed upon.
However, the major bone of contention is yet to be settled and that remains the asking price of the 20-year-old.

Borussia Dortmund have slammed a £100 million price tag for the player which obviously, the Red Devils are unwilling to meet because they do not value him in that regard.
The Red Devils boss Ed Woodward had already made it known they are unwilling to pay more than £50 million for the youngster and that hasn’t changed.
This is the reason why a deal for Sancho might not be as close as it seems. Both clubs will now enter negotiations and that largely determines a deal for the youngster.
While Man United might be ready to shift ground from the £50 million they initially value the player, they will not be willing to pay £100 million.
Same applies to Dortmund who are interested in the sale of Sancho. They are willing to come down from the initial £100 million asking price but will not go as low as £50 million.

The RB Leipzig was also on Arsenal radar but with the capture of Gabriel Magalhaes, the Red Devils will now enjoy a free run for his signature in January.
It is understood that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a big fan of the 21-year-old as he was attracted by his impressive performances on RB Leipzig’s run to the Champions League semi-finals.
However, reports claim that the Red Devils board is not too convinced about the readiness of Dayot Upamecano for a first-team football in the English Premier League and that has to be sorted out before an official bid is submitted to his club in January.
Transfer: How Cristiano Ronaldo is still helping United
Juventus star, Cristiano Ronaldo might have parted ways with his former club, Manchester United but that does not mean he has not been having one influence or the other on the club.
This was made known by former defender Patrice Evra who claims that the Portuguese star played a major role in bringing Bruno Fernandes to Manchester United in the last winter transfer window.
He revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo was the one who gave the go-ahead to the club to move in for Bruno Fernandes as they did not know anything about the player before his capture.

Patrice Evra stated that Bruno Fernandes is now making a massive impact at the club by ensuring more wins and helping to bring out the best in Paul Pogba.
Bruno Fernandes has even boasted that the best is yet to be seen of him as he has been training very hard to help his team the more in the coming season.
However, Cristiano Ronaldo remains a living legend of Manchester United as he made a very big impact at the Old Trafford, including winning of the Champions League, the Premier League as well as winning the World Best Footballer award as a Red Devils player under manager Alex Ferguson.
Manchester United are £2m close to sealing 19-year-old sensation
The search by English Premier League club Manchester United continues for players that will turn their season around but they are only close to sealing one.
Manchester United are keen on a new defender that will partner Harry Maguire and have been linked with French Ligue 1 outfit Monaco star, Benoit Badiashile with their first bid rejected.
According to AS, the Red Devils had submitted an offer of £25 million for the signature of Benoit Badiashile but Monaco rejected it because it was £2 million short of his release clause.

This means the Red Devils can complete the signing of the central defender if they return with an additional £2 million bid as that is the only way they can land him in January transfer window.
The Spanish outlet also adds that Monaco are not interested in parting ways with Benoit Badiashile because they still have a big need of him but they will be left with no choice if his release clause is tabled.
One area manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will focus on in January is the defensive department after seeing his team concede 36 goals last season.
However, we expect to see more signings from the Red Devils in January.
