It is no longer news that Borussia Dortmund winger, Jadon Sancho is Manchester United’s top summer transfer target.

The English club looks to have made headway in negotiation his exit from the Signal Iduna Park. Part of Manchester United’s challenge apart from the demand from BVB is wages and agents’ fees.

Since they have been to get this on the line, progress has therefore been made in their efforts to sign England forward.

Although no guarantee of an agreement between the clubs before transfer deadline day on 5 October, sources said the Bundesliga club remains adamant of not altering their demand for a fee in excess of £100m.

There is a likelihood that Dortmund will sell the 20-year-old once United soften their approach as deadline day neared. The Red Devils had indicated that they would pursue alternative targets if Dortmund does not reduce their demands.

Will Borussia Dortmund change their mind and release Jadon Sancho to Manchester United?

The BVB had said that they are done with transfer business after United failed to negotiate a deal for the winger before the deadline day to begin their preseason.

Sancho has been part of the team’s preseason and the club has said once that start, they won’t be releasing any player, having concluded their own transfer business as well.

Sancho coming to the Old Trafford would have increased the strike option for the Red Devils with a potential partnership with Marcus Rashford and in-form Anthony Martial.  But that might not be possible this summer judging from Dortmund’s stance.

Man United made their first summer signing last week, announcing the arrival of Netherlands midfielder Donny van de Beek from Ajax for £35m.

United sources have said that the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic at Old Trafford will become apparent when the club release their 2019-20 financial statement later this month. The report will cover a period including the first three months of the coronavirus lockdown.
