Borussia Dortmund have reportedly set a deadline for Manchester United to sign Jadon Sancho.
The Red Devils have been heavily linked with the England international for the second summer in a row and saw an opening bid of £67million for the 21-year-old star rejected earlier this month.
Sancho is understood to be top of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s shopping list this summer, and the player is thought to be keen on a return to the England.
However, Dortmund and United remain apart on the forward’s valuation and the Bundesliga club have reportedly now set a deadline for a deal to be done.
That is according to Sky Sports transfer guru Dharmesh Seth, who said: "The noises coming out of Germany suggest that Dortmund will not budge on what we believe to be around £82million.
“Most of that they want front-loaded and the rest in these achievable add-ons.
“If you remember last summer, Dortmund set a deadline for a deal to be done and they wanted £108million.
“Manchester United weren’t willing to pay £108million and they didn’t want to be subject to any kind of deadline as far as Dortmund were concerned.

“This time it seems a little bit more relaxed. There’s no public declaration of a deadline, but it is thought Dortmund will want this sorted one way or another by July 23.
“Why July 23? That’s when they will go on a pre-season training camp. That’s the deadline they set last summer as well because they were going on a pre-season training camp then as well.
“Borussia Dortmund are now actively looking for a replacement for Jadon Sancho.”
That gives United just over a month to complete a deal for Sancho, who could be engaged with England at the European Championships until July 11.
The ex-Manchester City academy star will be hoping to be involved with the Three Lions on Tuesday as Gareth Southgate’s side take on Czech Republic.
