Manchester United have reportedly made their first official bid for Jadon Sancho, offering 78 million euros for the Borussia Dortmund winger.

This is being reported by multiple outlets in England, who claim that the offer is far too low for Borussia Dortmund to consider, and it has already been rejected. The Black and Yellows want a fee of around 90-100 million euros for Jadon Sancho, with performance related bonuses added to that figure. So the Premier League side will have to improve their offer if they want to sign the England international.

Sancho has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United over the last 12 months. United wanted to sign the 21 year old last summer as well, but weren’t able to meet Borussia Dortmund’s demands. They are determined to sign him again this summer, and it will be interesting to see if they agree to pay the asking price this time around.

Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc said last month that they have a gentleman’s agreement with Sancho that would allow him to leave this summer. But he added that they will only sell him if all their conditions are met. It was reported earlier this week that BVB want Sancho’s future to be sorted by the end of July.

Sancho still has two years left on his Borussia Dortmund contract, so the BVB bosses aren’t under any pressure to sell him this summer. According to reports, the winger has already agreed personal terms with Manchester United. He is currently with the England squad preparing for the Euros. The Three Lions are due to play their first game of the tournament on Sunday.
