Manchester United reportedly make an improved bid in excess of £75m for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, after seeing their initial offer rejected.

Manchester United have reportedly made an improved offer worth more than £75m for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

The Red Devils have been long-term admirers of the 21-year-old and are understood to have already agreed personal terms on a five-year contract which would keep him at Old Trafford until 2026.

Man United's initial approach to Dortmund fell significantly short of the German club's asking price, with United seeing a bid of £67m plus £8m in add-ons turned down.

However, Sky Sports News reports that the Premier League side have now returned with an improved bid worth over £75m, which would see them pay more money up front with the rest in achievable add-ons.

Dortmund are thought to value Sancho at more than £80m, but Man United are hopeful that their latest offer will test their resolve, with all parties being open to the deal.

Sancho's current contract at Dortmund expires in 2023 and he is understood to be keen on a return to England, while Dortmund are eager to maximise the fee for the England international before his contract runs down by another year.

Sancho joined Dortmund from Manchester City's youth academy in 2017 and has gone on to score 50 goals and register 64 assists in 137 appearances for the club.

Sunday's key events

· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
