Manchester United are closing in on bringing Jadon Sancho to Old Trafford this summer.
The 21-year old is the prime target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he aims to bolster his side for the upcoming season.
According to the German publication Sport1 (via Sports Witness), official talks between Borussia Dortmund and the Red Devils have begun.
They also claimed that the Bundesliga team has cut its asking price from €120 million demanded last summer to roughly €90 million.
The Premier League giants were interested to sign Sancho last summer as well but the hefty price tag left them empty-handed.
This time, it looks the club is eager to complete the deal as soon as possible so that the player can get enough time to acclimatize with his new teammates.

The England international will be a valuable addition to Solskjaer’s side.
His arrival will help the team to create more chances. United have heavily relied on their left flank or the central area to create goal-scoring chances.
Very few opportunities have been generated from the right flank this past season.
Jadon Sancho is one of the best right wingers across Europe.
In 38 games for the German giants this term, he scored 16 goals and produced 14 assists.
His pace and vision will boost United’s attack which has struggled to penetrate deep-lying defences.
