Man United have reportedly made an improved bid for Jadon Sancho, after their initial offer was knocked back by Borussia Dortmund.
The new offer is believed to be worth more than £75m, with United committing to pay more up front with the rest in achievable add-ons, reports Sky Sports.
The key new information is that the Germans are ‘considering’ the latest offer. The English outfit’s initial proposal – believed to be £67m up front plus around £8m in add-ons – was turned down, with Dortmund valuing their prized asset in excess of £80m.
Developments in the recent weeks clearly indicate the nature of discussions are very different from last summer, where both parties never held positive talks to come to terms for the England international’s transfer.
Now there’s a willingness from all parties to facilitate the 21-year-old’s return to Manchester. Personal terms have never been an issue between United and Sancho’s representatives.
Further, Dortmund are now more open than ever to part ways with their star playmaker with his current contract expiring in 2023.
Apart from Sancho’s pursuit, the Red Devils are also in talks to sign La Liga duo Raphael Varane and Kieran Trippier. However, their opening bids have been rejected by both the Madrid clubs.
For now, talks continue and it remains to be seen whether a move will materlialize for any of these players, if not all three.
