Manchester United have had a first offer rejected by Borussia Dortmund for winger Jadon Sancho‘s services, according to the BBC.
The Red Devils have been linked with the 21-year-old since last summer, placing an initial offer of £67 million to begin discussions with the Bundesliga club.
Dortmund are expected to hold out for closer to £77.5m and an extra £4.25m in bonuses with the fee paid for in four years, rather than United’s preference of five.
Recent reports have suggested that Sancho and United’s representatives have agreed to personal terms, leaving an agreement on payment structure and time between the two clubs the only current stumbling block. Sancho’s deal at Dortmund still runs for another two years.
The England international is one of the Bundesliga’s many top talents who will be on display at the European Championships, potentially starting alongside BVB teammate Jude Bellingham for the Three Lions. An impressive tournament could see both players’ transfer value rise even further.
Sancho played an important role for his club this season, adding 20 goal involvements in 26 appearances in the Bundesliga. He also scored an important brace to secure the DFB Pokal for Dortmund in a 4-0 win over RB Leipzig.
