Manchester United have made progress in their attempts to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, according to BBC Sport.

Since the turn of the year the former Man City youngster has been linked with a big-money move back to England, with Man Utd leading the pack to claim his signature.

It has developed into a transfer saga, though, as so far the Old Trafford side have been frustrated in their efforts to sign Sancho.

One of the stumbling blocks to the deal was previously the lack of agreement on the player's personal terms as well as the fees for agents.

Those terms have now been agreed, which leaves just the transfer fee to be negotiated.

However, despite this slight progress, the deal is nowhere close to being done as Dortmund are refusing to budge on their £100m asking price for Sancho. The Bundesliga side are adamant that their star winger will not be available for a cut price fee even though European football has been hit hard financially by the coronavirus crisis.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already completed one signing this summer in the form of Donny van de Beek of Ajax.

In terms of outgoings, they are struggling to offload the likes of Jesse Lingard, Sergio Romero, Andreas Pereira, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, and Marcos Rojo.
