ManUtd and Jadon Sancho have reached an agreement on personal terms.
Manchester United have been turned down in their initial attempt to sign Jadon Sancho, according to the German tabloid Bild (via The Daily Mail).
The Red Devils have made a first bid of €69.5 million for the 21-year-old. However, it falls short of Borussia Dortmund’s assessment and appears to be rejected. Sancho has long been a goal for us, and though we may have fallen short, there looks to be progress.
This is according to Fabrizio Romano, who stated that United have struck an agreement with the player’s side and agreed on personal conditions for a contract extension until 2026. For his part, the player is on board and has not caused any issues.

He goes on to say that Dortmund are refusing to lower their €95 million asking price. Both teams have yet to reach a deal. Thankfully, work looks to be underway behind the scenes, and we should hear positive news shortly.
Dortmund’s management is well aware that they are in a strong negotiation position. They understand that United cannot afford any more transfer humiliation, especially after failing to close the deal last summer.
They also anticipate Sancho becoming one of the major stars at the European Championships, which will increase demand in his services and, as a result, his price tag.
