Manchester United are preparing a first offer for Jadon Sancho.
Manchester United are preparing to make their first bid for Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho, according to The United Stand (h/t Express).

The 21-year-old is one of the top young players in the world, and he has come a long way in the last few years. He was instrumental in Dortmund's good finish to the season.

Sancho scored 16 goals and added 20 assists in 38 games to enable Bayern Munich not only qualify for the Champions League next season, but also win the DFB Pokal against RB Leipzig.

Manchester United have been connected with Jadon Sancho. 
While the Englishman will not come cheap, United has realized that in order to compete at the top, they would need to invest. If it wasn't evident before, Villarreal's defeat was a wake-up call.

After the huge criticism they received from fans in recent weeks, the Glazers are eager to go big. The addition of a fresh player should assist to calm the situation. United appear to be on the verge of making their first approach for Sancho.

According to the report, private talks between the interested parties have already taken place. On Monday, the Red Devils' public relations team met with club executives ahead of a prospective offer being made.

United is likely to offer £85 million for Sancho, which may be enough to persuade Borussia Dortmund to sell. United came close to signing the 21-year-old a year ago, but the club balked at Doermund's £108 million asking price.
