Man United has reportedly said they will not go any higher than an offer of £50 million for the Englishman.
The transfer stories are going to reach its all-time peak as we head closer and closer to the opening of the transfer window. Teams were already well on their way in their negotiations or finding their suitable targets for next season during the forced interval in football.
One of the teams constructively busy behind closed doors was Man United. They were either making sure of their promising stars at the club already and trying to tie them down to new contracts. Or they were occupied with finding ways to secure top talents around Europe.

One such target and no secret was Jadon Sancho. The young Englishman from BVB was causing flashing lights at the Signal Iduna Park and the rest of the regions in the Bundesliga. From a long string of brilliant performances, he caught the attention of the big dogs on the continent and is now the subject of a big-money move to the aforementioned English club, Man United.
There have been many talks, flirts, and cheers without making an official bid, as the German and English evaluate the player at extremely different prices. Manchester has just come out saying they will not exceed the £50m mark, giving the impression the deal could hit a standstill before there’s even an offer on the table.
Manchester United will not pay more than £50m for Jadon Sancho, senior club officials have told Sky Sports News.
Dortmund has already stated in the past of how they maybe would have to consider taking a hit in the asking price for Sancho and talks of dropping the amount to around £80m is a possibility, even though their initial valuation of him was at £100m and up.
The 20-year-old is keen on a return to the Premier League but Borussia Dortmund and United remain poles apart on their valuations, with the Bundesliga club demanding in excess of £100m for the player they paid Manchester City £8m for in August 2017. (Via: Sky Sports)
This calls forth the game better known as transfers wars or hardball negotiations. Once an official bid has been submitted by Ole, the two clubs will start discussions and where to meet somewhere in the middle of £50m and 100m.
