Manchester United have reportedly increased their bid for Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho to 85 million euros, and an agreement now appears to be closer than ever. 

According to the BBC, Manchester United have made a new bid of 85 million euros for Jadon Sancho. While the latest bid is unlikely to be accepted by Borussia Dortmund, it is now viewed as virtually certain that the transfer will go through. Meanwhile, BILD claim that an agreement between the two clubs is now very likely to be reached following United’s latest offer.

Sancho has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United over the last 12 months. The Premier League side wanted to sign him last summer as well, but failed to meet Borussia Dortmund’s transfer demands. And so the 21 year old ended up staying in Germany.

But a transfer for Sancho now appears to be taking shape. The BVB bosses have a gentleman’s agreement with the England international that would allow him to leave if their terms are met. Dortmund’s asking price of 95 million euros plus performance related add-ons remains non-negotiable.

Sancho, who has two years left on his Borussia Dortmund contract, is coming off another impressive season that saw him score 16 goals and provide 20 assists in 38 appearances across all competitions. He is currently part of England’s Euro 2020 squad.
