The news in unending regarding Man United’s interest in England international winger Jadon Sancho as the media is being flooded with its report.

It is no longer news that Jadon Sancho is the major target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the Norway manager is keen to have him as part of the team in the coming season. As a matter of fact, he wants the deal to be sorted out in good time.

However, the Independent reports that the Red Devils have recorded a major breakthrough as an initial fee has been agreed for Jadon Sancho with the German Bundesliga outfit, Borussia Dortmund.

The report further explains that there are add-ons in the deal which will make it closer to the initial asking price by the Bundesliga outfit.

Borussia Dortmund had insisted on a £100 million price for the England international but after negotiations, the Red Devils have been asked to pay £60 million and that has been agreed.

However, the add-ons would make the fee rise to £100 million and that is being worked upon to ensure a speedy deal, according to the report.

Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund are already in the summer transfer market for a replacement for Jadon Sancho and an announcement would be made after that of the England international.
