Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho has been pursued throughout the summer transfer window so far.
But, with 48 hours to go, the Red Devils are in a race against time and believe they can do a deal for £100million, according to reports.
Throughout the summer, the Bundesliga club have been demanding a fee of £108million to let the England international go.
But according to 90min, the Old Trafford outfit are ‘getting closer’ to signing Sancho and feel £100m could be enough to convince Dortmund into selling up.
The 20-year-old was absent on Saturday afternoon as Dortmund met Freiburg in their Bundesliga showdown.
And Sancho is said to be hopeful that United and the Bundesliga giants agree a fee, with the former Manchester City youngster determined to make the move back to the Premier League.
United’s approach to the Sancho deal has been widely criticised by fans and pundits alike.
