Word stemming from the German media on Tuesday suggests that Manchester United are ready to table a big-money proposal for Jadon Sancho.
Reds remain keen
Speculation surrounding the future of Borussia Dortmund wide-man Sancho has of course come back to the fore in a major way over the last couple of weeks.
This comes after a number of updates on the English international’s links to Old Trafford were forthcoming.
As per âtransfer insiderâ Dean Jones, Man United remain at the front of the queue in the battle for Sancho’s signature.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to have made clear that he views the winger as the perfect summer addition to his squad, with the board at Signal Iduna Park ready to sanction a deal for less than the previously quoted price-tag of Â£100 million.

Not only that, but, speaking at the beginning of the month, BVB chief Michael Zorc confirmed that a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ is in place between club and player, to sanction a transfer for Sancho this summer.
Borussia Dortmund director Zorc to ARD: âWe already had a gentlemen’s agreement with Jadon Sancho since last year that he can leave the club under certain conditionsâ. 🟡⚫️
âHowever, this agreement does *not* exist with Erling Haalandâ. 🚫 #BVB

Bid at the ready
And, as outlined above, the latest word doing the rounds in the German media on Tuesday suggests that the headline suitors of the attacker are ready to imminently step up their interest.
As per the reliable Bild, Manchester United are preparing a mammoth proposal worth â¬90m for Sancho.
The Red Devils hierarchy are said to be keen to get a deal done before the European Championships kick off next month, to eliminate the risk of Sancho’s price-tag skyrocketing on the back of a stellar showing at the tournament.
In turn, a first offer is expected over the coming weeks.
