Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund are haggling over the method of payment for the fee of Jadon Sancho.
The Mirror says United have been told it will cost them £81.5million to sign Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
United’s 12-month waiting game for the 21-year-old England winger is set to save the Reds £26.5million after the Bundesliga club agreed to reduce last year’s £108million valuation in a bid to get the deal done.
It will still be a club-record deal at Old Trafford, beating the £80million that United paid Leicester for Harry Maguire two years ago.
Terms have been agreed with the player. But Dortmund want a big slice of the fee paid up front, while United would prefer to split it into instalments.
The German club are prepared to sacrifice Sancho to keep 20-year-old striking sensation Erling Haaland at the club.
