The key addition Manchester United made in the winter of 2020 has improved the offensive aspect of their football by a great margin, with Bruno Fernandes virtually claiming all the glory for the club’s top-four finish this season.
Regardless of the considerable improvement, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had previously promoted thoughts of going all out in the upcoming transfer window to bolster their attacking potential even further.
Whilst the supporters debate over the additions they could expect in the next window, the English side’s primary target, Jadon Sancho, has reportedly moved closer to the Old Trafford outfit as Borussia Dortmund nod their heads for an initial amount.
Whilst the pay plan thereafter remains clouded by uncertainty, the German club are willing to accept an initial £60 million, for a full transfer deal of £100 million, as sourced from the Independent,
Having established decisions earlier regarding the 20-year-old’s departure, Dortmund are reportedly eager to make a transfer happen, with plans set for their upcoming campaign. Consequently, the Bundesliga side are not interested in a prolonged negotiatory period for the talented forward, owing to which they’re willing to make some trade-offs.
It was previously understood that the starlet has no objections of his own in turning his heels towards Old Trafford, despite serious interests from giants like Liverpool and Real Madrid. Moreover, with fixed eyes on the talented youngster, United have been assessing his situation for quite a while now, and they hence stay favourites for acquiring the Englishman’s signature.
The report further claims that although the foundations of a deal have been set out, there have not yet been any official negotiations over the transfer between Dortmund and United. Therefore, all the existing claims and speculations are solely based on the talks between agents of the parties involved.
As such, the alleged August 10 deadline does make matters very interesting.
