Manchester United have received a boost in their pursuit of Jadon Sancho.
Borussia Dortmund are reportedly making moves to bring in a replacement for Jadon Sancho as they now expect the England international to complete a transfer to Manchester United this summer.
The Telegraph claim Dortmund are preparing to act on their interest in Werder Bremen winger Milot Rashica.
The 24-year-old scored 11 goals this season as Bremen kept their place in the Bundesliga after a tense relegation play-off against Heidenheim.
United have been told they must pay £100million to take Sancho back to the Premier League, three years after he left Manchester City.
The Red Devils are only willing to part with £80m so the two clubs are still negotiating the fee.
Personal terms are expected to be easy to agree as the 20-year-old is keen to move to Old Trafford.
Dortmund’s stern stance may be adjusted if they finalise a deal for Kosovo international Rashica.
United chief Ed Woodward has Sancho’s name at the top of his summer priority list and he has spent months trying to strike a deal.
A host of top European clubs did consider a move for the attacker but were put off by his substantial price tag.
United have been set a deadline of August 10 to complete the deal and BILD’s head of football Christian Falk has provided an update on how that is coming along.
