According to English outlet The Sun, the Old Trafford outfit has stepped up its interest in the Dortmund star. However, the Bundesliga has named an asking price of 70 million pounds for the player.
The media outlet further reports that Manchester United are ready to meet Dortmund’s demands. However, their city rivals, Manchester City could come as a stumbling block in their bid to secure the player.
No recent transfer in Manchester United history has made more sense than Jadon Sancho to #MUFC this summer. We’ve needed a top class RW for years and years. He would be an amazing signing. I expect this transfer to happen.

Rumours Man Utd will be trying to get Jadon Sancho to Old Trafford this summer. Makes perfect sense for them with their lack of talent on the right side and with the no 7 probably being vacant in the summer 👀

Manchester City have a buy-back clause for Jadon Sancho, which means that they will get the first refusal. Guardiola’s side also has a 15% sell-on clause in their deal with Borussia Dortmund.
Jadon Sancho made his debut for England last year.
If a deal between Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund for Sancho goes through, City will cash in 10.5 million pounds.
