Manchester United will be able to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund this summer for € 20 million less than last year, according to ESPN
As reported by ESPN, Manchester United chased Sancho last summer, but Dortmund was firmly above their estimate of the Englishman of 120 million euros (104 million British pounds).
As a result, the deal never materialized, but things could have changed at the time, with ESPN claiming that Dortmund would be ready to leave for 100 million euros (86.7 million British pounds).
While this should give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a lot of encouragement that Sancho can be signed this summer, this time there is an additional complication.

CaughtOffside understands that Liverpool are also running to sign Sancho, and Jurgen Klopp potentially wants to refresh his front line this summer.
Both clubs have the funds to pay the reported £ 86.7 million and sign Sancho, but it is unclear whether Sancho will support the move to Old Trafford or Anfield.
Liverpool may spend next season outside the Champions League, so this may be crucial if a decision is reached between the two.
