Man Utd prepared to meet BVB price for Sancho in coming hours

Manchester United are willing to meet Borussia Dortmund's asking price for Jadon Sancho in the coming hours.

The Old Trafford club made a £72m bid yesterday but they are prepared to go to £80m to get their man, says The Sun.

Personal terms based on a five-year deal worth £350,000-a-week have already been agreed.

Despite reports of wrangling, United have long been comfortable about the transfer going through smoothly after a year-long pursuit of the England international, 21.

This time last year they embarked on a summer of bartering before refusing to meet an asking price of £110m from the Germans.

United also spoke to Erling Haaland before the Euros, but the Dortmund striker has his heart set on a move to Real Madrid.
