One player that Manchester United have been chasing for quite some time now is Jadon Sancho. The Red Devils have been linked with the Borussia Dortmund winger for years at this point of time but a move has failed to materialise till now.
The club had tried to bring him to Old Trafford last summer but Borussia Dortmund were believed to have been looking for a transfer fee of around €120 million at that point of time, a figure that the Red Devils could not meet and as a result, Sancho remained at Signal Iduna Park.
There is the feeling that getting a deal done will be easier this time around though, as the Bundesliga giants appear to be open to letting him leave for a transfer fee of around €95 million.
And after months of rumours and speculation, it looks like things are picking up pace. As reported by BBC, Manchester United have had a £67 million transfer bid rejected for the English international.

Manchester United have had Sancho transfer bid rejected
The Red Devils might have had a transfer bid rejected for Sancho but overall, it is a positive sign as it is clear that the clubs are making progress when it comes to negotiations.
It looks like Sancho is the top target for Manchester United this summer and signing him could be a massive boost to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
Right wing is an area where they do not possess much depth in at this point of time, so much so that Mason Greenwood filled in the void for the majority of the previous campaign. But the youngster’s future lies much more centrally on the pitch and it makes sense for the club to sign a genuine right winger this summer.
As a result, Sancho can immediately come into the first-team picture and hopefully make an impact. He has had a tremendous time at Borussia Dortmund, scoring 50 goals and providing 64 assists in 137 appearances for them according to stats from Transfermarkt, despite being just 21 years of age. And if he can continue progressing like this, he might end up being one of the best players in the world in the not too distant future.
