Manchester United have made a breakthrough in negotiations to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
United have been at loggerheads for some time with Sancho’s camp over the player’s personal demands and agent fees owing to his representatives.
However, it’s understood that progress has been made on Wednesday with the two sides moving closer to an agreement.

That would clear the way for United to open discussions with Dortmund over a transfer fee, but there is still a significant obstacle with the Bundesliga club holding out for £108million.
United believe that is unrealistic in the current economic market that has been hit by the coronavirus pandemic, while Dortmund have previously declared the deal dead and insisted that Sancho will stay with them for another season.
Having made the 20-year-old England winger their No.1 transfer target, United have continued talks behind the scenes and remained hopeful that a deal can be done before the transfer deadline on October 5.

Their perseverance appears to have paid off following news of the latest twist in the transfer saga, and United chief Ed Woodward and the club’s transfer negotiator Matt Judge will now hope to accelerate talks in the coming days. United kick off the new season at home to Crystal Palace a week on Saturday.
They are anxious to sign a right-sided attacking player and have other options in mind if the Sancho deal falls through. But it’s understood that Gareth Bale is no longer considered a viable target as Real Madrid look to offload the Welshman amid interest from his old club Tottenham.
