Manchester United are so desirous of signing Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho in this summer's transfer window.
The Red Devils and Dortmund have agreed to go about Sancho negotiations in a ‘more respectful manner’, reports say.
United have already signed Donny van de Beek. And they’re hoping the 20-year-old will follow the Dutchman to Old Trafford this summer.
Now, with Champions League football to offer, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are hopeful they’ll be able to bring the England international to the club this summer.
And according to Bleacher Report, United and the German side have agreed to approach negotiations in a more ‘respectful manner’.
It’s claimed that the Old Trafford outfit felt that too much was being leaked during the early stages of the Sancho deal and, as a result, felt pressured into meeting demands they weren’t happy with.
United are said to be working on wage demands and agent fees.
And the £72m Chelsea are paying for Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Haertz will be used as a guide to how much the deal for Sancho should be worth.
The report concludes by saying the deal ‘could still happen’.
Meanwhile, former United star Darren Fletcher recently opened up on Sancho and admitted the winger ‘ticks all the boxes’ for Solskjaer’s side.
He told The Metro: “At his young age, to be doing what he’s doing at that level of football is fantastic and there’s no doubt that he has got a bright future in the game.
“It’s clearly a position that Manchester United, I feel, have needed for a number of years now, somebody who naturally wants to play off that right-hand side.
“So, I think that it ticks all the boxes in that respect but – at the same time – these transfers are very, very difficult.
“Large sums of money in these times, there’s a lot of circumstances involved in it.
“It’s not just Jadon Sancho and his representatives, it’s Borussia Dortmund, it’s Manchester United and I’m sure there will be other clubs interested in him as well.
“He’d be a fantastic acquisition for anyone who gets him.”
