Man Utd keep pushing for Sancho deal; but want contract demands cut

Manchester United chiefs want Borussia Dortmund attacker Jadon Sancho to cut his wage demands.

The Sun says they have been left frustrated by the player's wage demands plus Borussia Dortmund's refusal to deal directly with them.

The Bundesliga club have now appointed an agent to sort out the details of the transfer fee.

United want to pay an initial £70million that could rise to £110m based on honours and appearances. But Dortmund want more upfront for the 20-year-old England winger.

The player's representatives are now looking for more upfront in wages too.

The club want to offer a highly incentivised deal worth £220,000 per week. But Sancho is holding out for closer to £250k.

Again this is proving a sticking point with Sancho's side.

The Red Devils are also unhappy with the agents' fees being asked.
