Manchester United's hopes of finally getting their hands on Jadon Sancho have been given a major lift, following the agreement on the agent fee.
This comes a day after the club agreed on the player's personal terms, with the major stumbling block now being the transfer fee.
Manchester United have offered €70M/$85M for the winger, but Borussia Dortmund are holding out for more than €90M/$110M.
Manchester United are working hard on Sancho deal as ‘too long negotiation’ is not the best strategy with BVB asking for €95m 🔴 #MUFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) June 11, 2021
All people involved in negotiations now ‘confident’, but cautious after what happened a year ago.
After personal terms, agents fee agreed too.
According to reports, United's payment plan is another sticking point, with Dortmund demanding the fee be spread over a four-year period as opposed to the former's five.
The Premier League runners-up have been chasing the 21-year old since last summer, and are keen to tie the deal sooner.
Coach Ole Gunnar Solskajer has identified a right-sided attacking player as one of his priorities, and the former Man City academy star ticks all boxes.
