Manchester United have emerged as front-runners in the race for the signature of Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho, according to a report from The Telegraph.
The report claims that Dortmund would be willing to let the 19-year-old depart the club this summer.
Sancho is set to cost more than the €105 million that the English Premier League side paid to bring Paul Pogba to Old Trafford in 2016.
If the two clubs manage to agree on a transfer fee, negotiations over a contract that will see Sancho earn at least €200,000 a week should be 'straightforward'.
The youngster recently insisted he isn't focusing on his future at the moment.
"I don't really look at all those things. I just concentrate on my team and take it game by game. That's the most important thing for me now," he said after scoring Dortmund's match-winning goal against Freiburg on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke says he's not under the impression that Sancho wants to depart the club at the end of the season.
"I think he has the feeling that the club does have a good future. In my opinion, I don't think he wants to leave," Watzke told BBC.
Sancho has netted 17 times and set up 18 goals in 33 games for Borussia Dortmund this season. His contract runs until 2022.
