United have tracked the English star since last summer, though could not agree to Borussia Dortmund‘s lofty demands and saw the opportunity pass by.
Now, United have made their opening gambit, and have floated a £60million offer to Dortmund according to fresh reports in German publication Bild.
Manchester United have finally made their first official move to sign Jadon Sancho
It is reported that this will not be enough to satisfy the Bundesliga giants, who believe they can extract even more value for the youngster.
Bild note that Dortmund chiefs are aware that are in an ideal negotiating position, given that they know that United cannot afford any more transfer embarrassment after the weeks of uncertainty in failing to clinch the deal last summer.
Likewise, they expect Sancho to become one of the leading names at the European championships, therefore driving up interest in his services and his price tag as a result.
