After Donny van de Beek, Manchester United’s board is trying to close the deal for Jadon Sancho.

Manchester United are ready to solve their financial issues and bring Jadon Sancho to Old Trafford, avoiding any further protraction. From their perspective, agent fees and personal terms are the sticking points of the negotiations.

Sancho has made phenomenal progress during his spell with Borussia Dortmund. With a 68-goal contribution in 78 Bundesliga appearances, the 20-year-old is considered one of the brightest talents in Europe and has attracted suitors across the continent.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, since taking over on a permanent basis, has identified Jadon Sancho as the vital figure of Manchester United’s attack which could challenge for major accolades in the near future.

As things stand, Borussia Dortmund have demanded €120million for Jadon Sancho, which Manchester United insiders deem ‘unrealistic’ taking the post-pandemic market into account. Yet, the German counterparts have refused to budge on their demands.

The German media suggest that a deal, which has a very low chance of going through, is possible only if Man United propose the full payment of €120m. Crucially, the English stories explain that consensus over the transfer fees could be reached via an amortised structure.

In the midst of the existing rat race between news outlets, Jadon Sancho remains keen on a move to Old Trafford this summer. Going by recent developments, the dots seem to connect in favour of Man United.

Despite relative silence on this saga for the past few weeks, the dialogues are understood to be happening behind closed doors. Both parties have amicably decided to reach an agreement without the hassle of media coverage.

Recently, Christian Falk has said Jadon Sancho could be granted his wish of joining Manchester United if the English club matches the €120m valuation. This could be a positive bit for the Red Devils’ faithful, as the people connected with United suggest transfer fees won’t be an issue.

"Jadon Sancho remains the club’s top summer target but fees requested by agents and intermediaries, plus Sancho’s wage demands, continue to be a stumbling block.Manchester United have also told Borussia Dortmund they believe their €120 million valuation is “unrealistic” during the coronavirus pandemic but are willing to put together a structured payment plan if progress with Sancho’s representatives can be made.

The willingness of Man United to strike a deal with Dortmund could be a groundbreaking moment in this transfer saga. As per Fabrizio Romano, personal terms and agent fees have never been an issue and is pretty much agreed among all factions.

If United could find a payment structure to convince Dortmund to sanction the transfer, the transfer could see rapid movement in the coming days. All in all, the onus is on the bosses to deliver.
