Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho is reportedly pushing for a move to Manchester United to be completed before the transfer window slams shut on October 5.
The saga surrounding Sancho's future has dragged on for the entire window and Dortmund have been adamant that he is going nowhere.
However, the Sun are reporting that the player believes the deal will be done and that he has asked his advisors to "pull out all the stops".
The report claims Dortmund are resigned to selling Sancho, despite their repeated insistences that he will be staying at the Westfalenstadion.
It quotes multiple sources, with one saying: "He [Sancho] wants this deal done.
"He's told his agent and various advisors to do all they can to make it happen. They are pushing for him."
Dortmund are said to be after at least £80m as an up front fee plus add-ons and the final fee could be around £95m in total rather than the German side's £108m asking price.
A second source told the publication: "There's a bit of a stand off going on… it's a case of who blinks first. Will United up the offer or will Dortmund accept a lower bid?"
