Manchester United are now set to end the transfer saga over the Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho within the next ten days but the Bundesliga giants have given their verdict concerning the deal.
Manchester United have been heavily linked with the 20-year-old winger since the start of the new year. But Dortmund has remained firm with their stance that the winger is not for sale.
A fresh report from journalist Kelvin Palmer says that Manchester United are now looking set to make a fresh hefty offer but not matching the Bundesliga giants’ asking price.
However, Dortmund has made their terms clear that the England international will not leave the club for anything less than €120m.
The ball is now in Manchester United’s court to decide if they are willing to pay the asking price for the young attacker or look elsewhere.
But for Manchester United faithfuls, Sancho would be a great delight at Old Trafford and has what it takes to become their best attacker.

Even at such a young age, Jadon Sancho is rapidly growing into a world-class talent with 20 goals and 20 assists for his club last season.
Sancho joining United will be a great advantage for the Premier League side in their bid to challenge for titles.
Manchester United’s attack seems to be lacking the necessary pace and quality to create more chances in attack and the addition of Jadon Sancho could make all the difference.
Mirror Sports, however, reports that the Red Devils are making a final bid of £75m upfront with a further £15m in add-ons and claim Ed Woodward will inform the Bundesliga side that there will be no further negotiation over the fee or structure of the deal.
Sancho however, has the quality to justify such a high fee and United should look towards securing his signature before the transfer window closes on October 5.
