Man Utd willing to go higher for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho

Manchester United are willing to go higher for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

The Mirror says United are closing in on a £75m deal for Sancho.

They have held further talks with Borussia Dortmund and, having had an opening offer of £67m turned down, they are super confident of getting a move over the line.

Sancho, 21, is ready to quit Dortmund this summer and return to England after graduating from Manchester City 's youth academy.

England star Sancho is in Gareth Southgate's 26-man Euros squad but did not make the match day list for the opening Group match with Croatia.

However, Sancho is expecting his move to Old Trafford to go ahead which may also mean that Dortmund are able to hang on to star striker Erling Haaland this summer, having qualified for the Champions League.

Sancho had provisionally agreed terms with United last summer, which should make that part of the transfer a pretty straightforward task.
