Man United encouraged with this Dortmund move


English Premier League club Man United have been handed a major boost in their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho ahead of the summer transfer window.

According to reports, the German Bundesliga club are now planning for the departure of the England international, with the Telegraph reporting that they have started searching for his replacement.

This means the club are already giving up on keeping the 20-year-old as they have been on the negotiation table with the Red Devils for many weeks.

Borussia Dortmund are requesting a fee of £100 million for the youngster which the Red Devils are unwilling to pay. Man United initially pegged their bid at £50 million for Jadon Sancho they have now improved it to £80 million which is yet to be agreed upon.

There is no doubt that the England international will to mind returning to his country home and Man United will not be a bad club for him while the Bundesliga side are also ready to let him go but seek to cash in on the player.

However, it is reported that Werder Bremen’s Milot Rashica has been identified as the best replacement for the former Man City youth player and the club is already preparing an offer for him.
