Man Utd ‘agree agents fee with Sancho’s representatives’ as opening bid rejected

Manchester United have moved one step closer to agreeing a deal for Jadon Sancho after agreeing agent fees with the player's representatives.

The Red Devils have long been working on a transfer for the Borussia Dortmund star, having come close last year and renewed interest once again in recent weeks.

Dortmund have placed an £81m price tag on the 21-year-old, who enjoyed another brilliant individual campaign in Germany in the 2020/21 campaign.

Although the two clubs are yet to agree a transfer fee, United have already negotiated personal terms with Sancho and have now finalised details relating to agent fees.

Sancho is currently represented by an agency called Elite Project Group, who are responsible for other stars such as Arsenal's Bukayo Saka and Norwich City midfielder Todd Cantwell.

United are now 'confident' that a transfer can be completed but remain 'cautious' after last year's events, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.

Completing a deal in the coming weeks is likely to prove a challenge due to the former Manchester City academy star competing at Euro 2020 with England.

Speculation has grown in recent days, resulting in Sancho responding to recent reports while away with Gareth Southgate's side on international duty.

Do you think Man Utd will sign Sancho this summer? Comment below.

“I don’t really look at it [the speculation]. During the season, I always focus on myself & the team," he told TalkSport.

"That’s the most important thing we can do and every time I’m on the pitch I always give it my all, obviously trying to create what I do on the pitch and that’s with goals and assists. That’s what I really try to do, work hard for the team.

"[The noise] is part of the game. Fans are always going to be excited for major tournaments, so that’s normal. As a young kid growing up and watching these major tournaments, I was excited as well.

"All the lads should be excited, these tournaments don’t come around often, so you have to take your moment and when you do get your opportunity on the pitch, you have to take it."
