Manchester United are reportedly closing in on an £80million deal to buy South London-born footballer Jadon Sancho.
It is claimed that personal terms on a five-year deal – worth £350,000 a week – have already been agreed.
The Sun are reporting that the Red Devils made a £72m bid earlier this week, but that they are prepared to go to £80m to get the Borussia Dortmund star.
Sancho has 20 caps for England and has scored three goals for his country.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side failed in their pursuit of the 21-year-old last summer, after the two clubs could not agree a fee.
Kennington-raised Sancho has a contract at Dortmund until the summer of 2023.
