    Manchester United have increased their offer for Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho to 85m euros (£72.6m).

    United have already had one bid for the 21-year-old England winger turned down and their latest is still 10m euros short of the German club's valuation.

    However, while the latest bid is unlikely to be accepted, it is now viewed as virtually certain the transfer will eventually be concluded.

    Sancho is currently part of England's squad at Euro 2020.

    Dortmund have a gentleman's agreement with him that he will be allowed to leave this summer if a club meets his valuation.

    Although Sancho has been restricted to a single short substitute appearance at Euro 2020, his performances at Dortmund have been massively impressive and sources at United see no reason why that cannot be replicated in the Premier League.

    Sancho has scored 50 goals in 137 games for Dortmund, plus three goals in 20 caps for England.

    In the past three seasons, he has been involved in 109 goals with Dortmund and scored twice when they beat RB Leipzig to win the German Cup final in May.

    Manchester United missed out on signing Sancho 12 months ago, when they were quoted a fee by Dortmund for Sancho, then tried to reduce it believing the Bundesliga side would eventually sell for a lower price.

    In the end, the German club refused to budge and Sancho remained where he was.

    Sancho joined Borussia Dortmund from Manchester City for £10m in August 2017.

    City negotiated a 15% sell-on clause as part of the deal and will receive it for the total fee rather than just the profit.

      Not a Utd fan, but this is getting embarrassing. Either Utd want the player or not. These negotiations in public are a joke. Pay or tell Dortmund, no thank you24249

      What an embarrassing club. They’ve been after him for ages so just pay the money Dortmund want. It’s not like they’re skint. They paid £80m for a CB with the turning circle of a container ship.22573

      For post-Covid times..it’s a sickening amount of money. I thought some morality might come back into football. Real Madrid and Barca & Co. are bleating away about financial hardships of football – they’re broke – so maybe clubs should pay their players less & less on transfers etc! And is he even that good?11415

      ‘United have already had one bid for the 21-year-old England winger turned down’
      ‘the 20-year-old has been restricted to a single short substitute appearance’
      And when the article was first published he was a 25 year old winger.
      Come on BBC, how hard is it to get someone’s age right?836

Editing and fact-checking costs money, so forget about that. I think the 20/21 problem is from article after article on this subject being a rehash of the previous ones, and he’s gotten a year older since the base article was written.311

      Sancho is a great player but I don’t get why utd are bidding for him.

      They have Rashford, Martial, Greenwood and Cavani. They don’t need forwards.

      The only use they could have for Sancho is either as a winger or as a #10, but that isn’t utd’s system.

      Just to me, it doesn’t make sense.

      They need a creative midfielder and a world class CB, that’s about it.5510

        Sancho is worth at most £30m. The league is Championship quality.

        Chelsea paid £150m for Havertz and Werner who destroyed Sancho’s stats last year.

        Sancho has pace, but so does everyone in the Premier League.

        United are mugs, they just don’t think they are2826

      This is getting as embarrassing as Spurs not being able to appoint a manager as no-one wants the job. The Glazers have paid themselves huge fat cat dividends and paid over the odds for players like Maguire. Now the young boy Sancho is possibly available they don’t want to pay market rates.369
