If Jadon Sancho finally joins Manchester United he will become the second-highest earner at the club.
Talks between United and Borussia Dortmund are continuing, with the German side having rejected an initial bid of £67 million for him.#, although add-ons pushed that valuation higher.
However, the Bundesliga side are holding out for more, and there is currently a gap of £10 million between the two clubs.
Personal terms with the England winger have already been agreed, and there is widespread optimism at Old Trafford that United can final ly get this deal over the line.
He was heavily linked with them last summer, but, at the time, Dortmund wanted over £100 million for him.
His proposed contract will propel him into the bracket of the best paid players in the Premier League alongside de Gea, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and the Manchester City duoof Kevin de Bruyne and Raheem Sterling.
