Manchester United have reportedly made ‘contact’ with the agent of Jadon Sancho as Borussia Dortmund set their asking price for the in-demand star.
The England international has emerged as one of the most sought after players in world football following another stellar season with the Bundesliga side, with Liverpool and Chelsea amongst the Premier League clubs set to rival United for his signature this summer.
European giants Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich have also been linked with the winger, though Dortmund will not part with their prized asset easily and will demand a fee of at least €110m (£100m) for his services.
The usually reliable Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Dortmund have not altered their stance on the player’s future despite the ongoing coronavirus crisis, with the club under no pressure to sanction Sancho’s sale for a reduced fee during the summer transfer window.
BVB message to all the clubs who asked for #Sancho: we don’t change the price after Coronavirus crisis and we’ll not sell him for less than €110M.
Man United are in contact with his agent, but BVB have not received any official bid yet. It won’t be a quick deal. 🔴 #MUFC

Romano also revealed that Manchester United are ‘in contact’ with Sancho’s agent over a proposed switch to Old Trafford, as Ole Gunnar Solskajer’s side seek to take an early advantage in the race to secure his signing.
The Red Devils have long been admirers of the 20-year-old’s talents and are desperate to bring the player back to the Premier League, Sancho having flourished since making the move to Germany four years ago.
Sancho has developed a reputation as one of the finest players in Germany’s top flight at present, scoring 14 Bundesliga goals and providing a further 15 assists for Lucien Favre’s side who currently trail leaders Bayern Munich by four points in the title race.
