Despite Dortmund making it clear they will not sell Jadon Sancho this summer, Manchester United are yet to give up on the pursuit of the youngster.
According to Sky Sports News reporter, Dharmesh Sheth, the saga is far from over as Manchester United are still working behind the scene to overcome all the obstacles stopping them from completing the deal.
“I’ve been speaking to somebody close to a potential deal involving Jadon Sancho to Manchester United and in the past 24 hours there have been developments and potentially good news for Manchester United fans, because the issues of agent fees and personal terms, I’ve been told, are no longer a problem,” he said on Sky Sports.
“Manchester United are remaining tight-lipped on these developments but it’s clear that some good progress has been made on overcoming the problems of agent fees and wages.
“We understand that United remain very resolute and determined to not overpay for a player given the realities of the coronavirus pandemic, but given that this was the issue for the past two or three weeks that Manchester United weren’t making a bid because they needed to sort out agent fees and personal terms for Jadon Sancho, this appears to be some sort of a breakthrough.
“It’s our understanding now that the agent fees and the personal terms are not going to be a problem anymore.”
United are still reluctant to pay £108m asking price for the England international but if Dortmund show willingness to reduce the fee, a deal could be done quickly.
