Manchester United will reportedly have to come up with an offer of €120m (£109m) if they are to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund before the end of the summer transfer window.
The Red Devils have been strongly linked with the England international over the last few months but have thus far been unable to agree a deal with the Bundesliga giants.
United are still said to be pursuing the former Manchester City youngster despite the fact that the current transfer window will come to a close on October 5.
A recent report claimed that the 20-time English champions are remaining patient as they are hopeful of agreeing a cut-price deal for the attacker over the next week.
Sancho was in excellent form for Dortmund last season and has also made a strong start to the current campaign, scoring once and providing two assists in three appearances in all competitions.
