Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund were in talks over the transfer of Jadon Sancho this weekend.
The Red Devils reportedly had a bid worth £67m rejected last week for the winger, as reported by various outlets, with £80m likely to be enough to get a deal over the line this summer.
According to Fabrizio Romano, the two clubs have been working towards bridging the gap with a combination of cash and bonuses.
Manchester United have been in contact with Jadon Sancho’s camp also during the weekend. 🔴 #MUFC
Negotiations with Borussia Dortmund on €95m price, bonus details and payment structure will continue in the next hours/days. #Sancho
€70m won’t be enough to complete the deal.

The respected Italian journalist delivered his latest update on Twitter last night – it remains to be seen if Sancho will be allowed to leave the England camp at Euro 2020 to sign for United, but it sounds like it could get solved after the tournament.
United want to include a number of add-ins based on individual achievements, such as Ballon d’Or nominations and potentially England caps etc. Dortmund want more realistic objectives such as Premier League triumphs and Champions League qualification.
It doesn’t sound like either club wants this saga to drag on.
