The Red Devils remain in talks with Dortmund over a summer transfer and are understood to have agreed personal terms with the 21-year-old.
United and Dortmund were unable to agree on a fee last year as the German side continued to demand in excess of £100m for the former Manchester City academy star, but have lowered their asking price on this occasion.
It’s understood £78m would be enough to secure a deal for Sancho this time around, with a fall in value relating to the financial damage caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Had Sancho been putting in man-of-the-match displays for England at Euro 2020, it’s highly likely that Dortmund may have reconsidered their asking price.
You only have to look as far as Italy’s Manuel Locatelli or Denzel Dumfries of the Netherlands to see what strong performances at Euro 2020 can do for a player’s transfer value, with both stars in demand this summer and expected to sell for more than their expected rate.
International competitions often act as the perfect platform for players to earn big-money moves and demonstrate to potential buyers just what they have to offer. In Sancho’s case, United are already aware of what qualities he possesses and will not want his valuation raised any higher.
There could still be an opportunity for the London-born forward to shine at Euro 2020, though Manchester United may prefer if he continues to play a supporting role in the side.
