Manchester United have reportedly had a £67million bid for South London-born Jadon Sancho turned down by Borussia Dortmund.
The BBC are reporting that Dortmund want £77.5m for the England winger, with an additional £4.25m bonus payment.
Furthermore the Red Devils want to pay the fee over five years and the German club are only willing to extend it to four years.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side failed in their pursuit of the 21-year-old last summer, after they could not agree a fee with Borussia Dortmund.
Sancho said: “I don’t really look at it [the speculation]. During the season I always focus on myself and the team, because that’s the most important thing.
“Every time I’m on the pitch I always give my all and try to create what I do on the pitch – and that’s with goals and assists. I always work hard for the team.
“[The noise] is part of the game.”
