Manchester United have increased their offer to capture Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, Sky Sports claims.
The Englishman was strongly linked to the Red Devils last summer, but a trade fell through due to the £108 million value.
Sancho may be available for a lower price this time around, although United have yet to settle on a deal with the Bundesliga club.
United made an initial offer of £67 million plus add-ons, which was rejected, and they have now increased their proposal to more than £75 million.
Although the offer falls short of Dortmund’s value, there is a ‘willingness on the side of all parties’ to complete the transaction before Sancho’s contract expires in June 2023.
Sancho was in sensational form for Dortmund last season, scoring 16 goals and assisting on 20 occasions in 38 appearances across all competitions.
He began the season poorly due to uncertainty about his future but improved his form towards the conclusion of the season.
Dortmund are seeking an initial £81.6 million (€95 million) for the versatile striker, according to Ruhr Nachrichten, and the asking price is non-negotiable.
They are said to want to resolve the player’s future by mid-July and will not countenance another lengthy transfer drama this summer.
United are still considered to be Sancho’s’most feasible’ destination. They may have to submit a revised offer closer to the asking price in order to persuade Dortmund.
Sancho would immediately improve United’s right flank position, which has lacked a consistent source of goals and assists.
