Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund are £20m apart in their valuation for winger Jadon Sancho, according to the Daily Telegraph.
It is thought that the Red Devils are only willing to go as high as £80m for the player at the moment with Dortmund still holding out for their original £100m asking price.
Supporters on Twitter have called for the two sides to come to a compromise over Sancho:
Only a matter of time.

This deal is moving really quickly

Just offer them Lingard + 100M. I am sure they will come to conclusion fast and accept 90M – Lingard.

80m +20m in achievable add ons throughout the next two seasons should get it done

If it’s really down to £20m it’ll happen I’m sure the two will come to terms either through add ons or meet in the middle
Positive news though if true

The Telegraph also claims that Dortmund are already lining up a potential replacement for the England international, with Werder Bremen winger Milot Rashica being eyed.
If that is true, it suggests that Sancho’s departure could be closer than many expect. Reports in recent weeks have suggested that Dortmund would be happy to keep the 20-year-old if no club matches their valuation.
£100m is a lot of money, especially in the current financial climate, but it does seem as though United will have very little competition for the player as a result, with Chelsea said to be targeting Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz instead.
