The Daily Star says United are willing to spend £80million on Sancho to end the transfer saga once and for all.
The problem is, though, that that is still way short of the German giants' asking price.
Dortmund want £108m to let the England international depart the Westfalenstadion and are under no financial pressure to sell, despite landing Jude Bellingham and Erling Haaland so far this year.
United have looked at alternatives to Sancho as a result, with the club adamant they won't be shattering any transfer records while the coronavirus crisis remains ongoing.
United tried to sign Sancho in the summer transfer window of 2017, only for the forward to end up moving to Borussia Dortmund instead.
And they also attempted to land him 12 months ago only for their failure to secure Champions League qualification to count against them.
