Manchester United have made a breakthrough with the Borussia Dortmund star supposedly agreeing personal terms with the club in their search of Jadon Sancho.
The Red Devils have been monitoring Sancho over the summer but have hitherto been reluctant to pay the £108million asking fee for the winger from the German club.
And despite the suggestion by BVB sporting director Michael Zorc that the 20-year-old will not be sold in this window, Sky Sports reports that United is increasingly optimistic that they can make a deal to sign the England star.
“Manchester United are remaining tight-lipped on these developments but it’s clear that some good progress has been made on overcoming the problems of agent fees and wages.”
“Sancho is buzzing to join Manchester United, because he decided months ago to talk about this opportunity.
“Jadon Sancho for his personal terms and his contract is ready to join Manchester United by weeks, by months.”
Sky Sports News reporter Dharmesh Sheth said: “I’ve been talking to someone close to a potential deal involving Jadon Sancho with Manchester United and there have been developments and potentially good news for Manchester United fans in the past 24 hours, because, I’ve been told, the issues of agent fees and personal terms are no longer a problem.
Progress in talks comes after Fabrizio Romano, the transfer specialist, reported Sancho was ‘buzzing’ in anticipation of his expected return to the Premier League.
Having netted 17 times and added 16 assists in 32 Bundesliga matches last term, former Manchester City academy graduate Sancho has made his name as one of Europe’s hottest prospects.
