and have agreed to go about Jadon Sancho negotiations in a ‘more respectful manner’, reports say. ’s side have already signed Donny van de Beek. And they’re hoping the England international will follow the Dutchman to Old Trafford this summer.
Manchester United secured Champions League qualification back in July, beating Leicester 2-0 on the final day of the season to finish third in the Premier League table.
And, ever since, they’ve been heavily linked with a move for Sancho.
The club’s interest in the England international dates back to 2017. The Red Devils tried to lure him to Old Trafford from Manchester City but ultimately missed out, with the player choosing to prioritise first-team football with Dortmund instead.
And, when they came calling last summer, they were snubbed after finishing sixth in the league table under Solskjaer.
Now, with Champions League football to offer, United are hopeful they’ll be able to bring the 20-year-old to the club this summer.
Andsay the Red Devils and Dortmund have agreed to approach negotiations in a more ‘respectful manner’.

And that will be music to United supporters’ ears, with many fans hopeful Sancho will make a blockbuster return to the Premier League this summer.
Meanwhile, former United star Darren Fletcher recently opened up on Sancho and admitted the 20-year-old ‘ticks all the boxes’ for Solskjaer’s side.
He told The Metro: “At his young age, to be doing what he’s doing at that level of football is fantastic and there’s no doubt that he has got a bright future in the game.
“It’s clearly a position that Manchester United, I feel, have needed for a number of years now, somebody who naturally wants to play off that right-hand side.
“So, I think that it ticks all the boxes in that respect but – at the same time – these transfers are very, very difficult.

“Large sums of money in these times, there’s a lot of circumstances involved in it.
“It’s not just Jadon Sancho and his representatives, it’s Borussia Dortmund, it’s Manchester United and I’m sure there will be other clubs interested in him as well.
“He’d be a fantastic acquisition for anyone who gets him.”
Sancho scored 17 goals and registered 17 assists for Dortmund across all competitions last season.
But they still ended the campaign without a trophy, with the German side finishing second to Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga standings.
