Manchester United are still looking to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund this summer as the clock ticks down on the transfer window deadline. The Bundesliga side are holding firm on their asking price for the England international, but the Red Devils are looking to strike up a cheaper deal.
Manchester United reportedly went against Borussia Dortmund’s transfer brief when they launched a bid earlier this week.
The Red Devils are understood to have tabled an offer just over £90million for Sancho on Monday.
But their bid was firmly rebutted, with Dortmund insisting the offer from United were way off the mark.
And now reports from Germany have claimed that the Premier League side were already told how much they would have to offer for Sancho for a bid to be considered.
Constantin Eckner states that Dortmund told United they would not listen to any offers below £109m.
“Earlier this week,” he wrote on Twitter. “Dortmund let everyone, including #MUFC, know that they don’t look at offers well below 120m [euros].
“United are currently thinking about approaching Dortmund again very soon.
“The decision hasn’t been made. #Sancho is not actively protesting Dortmund’s position.”

The Times are reporting that Sancho is expecting United to come in with another offer for the Englishman.
The report also states that Sancho is willing to wait until next summer to seal a move to Old Trafford.

That would fit with the narrative of Dortmund captain Marco Reus, who said that the 20-year-old would be sticking around at the Signal Iduna Park for at least another year.
“For us players that was great news,” he told Sky in Germany.
“We all were happy that he will be with us for one more year because he delivers assists and goals, so we get points.
“If he gets as big as (Lionel) Messi or Ronaldo, we will see. He needs time, experience and it will be important how he manages the times when things don’t go so well. But he has the confidence and the quality.”
