Borussia Dortmund, and England, star Jadon Sancho is a wanted man, and he looks set to end up at Old Trafford after Dortmund slash his price tag ahead of the transfer window.
Sancho joined Dortmund – after leaving Manchester City’s youth set-up – in 2017, and the winger has gone from strength to strength for the German outfit.
Manchester United moved for the Englishman last summer – and the pair agreed personal terms – however, they couldn’t agree on a fee.
Dortmund wanted €120million for his services, but they could ask for a smaller sum this window, according to SPORT1.
SPORT1 believe that Dortmund would accept a bid in the region of €90million for the winger.
The cut-price is believed to be due to the economic knock-on of the Coronavirus pandemic, and the fact Sancho is entering the final two years of his contract.
And various reports in England are suggesting that Sancho would like a deal to be wrapped up before the start of Euro 2020, on June 11.
With personal terms already agreed – it’s a case of the clubs agreeing to a fee.
Sancho is currently with the rest of the England squad, in the North East, as they prepare for his first major international tournament.
England kick off their campaign on June 13 with a fixture against Croatia, who caused England heartache two years ago, knocking them out of the World Cup semi-finals.
More Manchester United transfer news.
Manchester United have contact Tottenham for Harry Winks.
According to transfer news from Stretty News (h/t Express), Tottenham Hotspur have been contacted by rivals Manchester United over a possible summer move for Harry Winks.
The 25-year-old midfielder is a product of the Tottenham youth academy and made his debut as early as 2014, when he was just 18 years old.
However, it was only after 2016 that he became a regular fixture in the first-team and has managed 173 appearances till date, in which he has four goals and assists apiece. (h/t Transfermarkt).
However, Winks endured a difficult 2020/21 season during which he fell out of favour with manager Jose Mourinho.
Indeed, the 25-year-old England international managed just nine Premier league starts over the course of the campaign, with two of those coming after Mourinho was sacked in April earlier this year.
And, it seems like despite his decline in stature at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium over the past year, Winks still has fans in the Premier League in the form of Manchester United.
The report claims that the Red Devils’ officials are huge admirers of the England international and are keen on wrapping up a deal for him in the summer.
To that end, Manchester United are already said to have opened talks with Tottenham over a move for Winks.
It is claimed that even though Spurs do not have a manager currently, they seem receptive to offers and would be willing to sell for a fee of £25m.
