Manchester United have submitted an improved offer for Jadon Sancho, German outlet Sport 1 confirm.

This is in response to Sky Sports‘ claim earlier in the day United have lodged a new offer for Sancho.

The problem is United’s offer is still short of Dortmund’s asking price.

The report says Dortmund want 90m Euros guaranteed – £77 million. United’s offer is still short.

Sky claimed United have offered £67 million plus £8 million in add ons.

‘Solution-orientated’

Sport 1 report Dortmund want ‘additional proceeds’ from the Sancho deal. We take this to mean a possible sell-on clause.

 

United may be reluctant to agree to this, even if there should really be no reason to want to consider selling Sancho at any point, especially after the two-year plus battle to bring him in.

The report adds: “All parties involved are apparently interested in getting the deal off the ground. Club-related sources from both clubs confirmed to Sport1 that negotiations are still “solution-oriented.”

We said yesterday that it feels like the negotiations are moving forward, and hopefully reaching the final stages.

The two clubs aren’t close enough in terms of fees for our liking though, and talk of a possible sell-on clause just adds one extra obstacle to negotiate.

We do appreciate that in highly expensive negotiations like this there will be big decisions on both sides to consider and compromises to strike. It would be nice if the ‘solution orientated’ talks could really work together to sort this out once and for all this week.
