At just 19 years of age, the former Manchester City forward is one of the most coveted players on the planet and BVB are reportedly resigned to losing their star man this summer.

According to the Mirror, if a bid of £120m was to come in from an interested party, a deal could be done.

With Pedro and Willian both likely to leave this summer, Chelsea are understandably keen to strengthen their forward positions.

However, the report claims United are confident of bringing Sancho back to Manchester after executive vice-chairman made it clear the club will back Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the summer transfer market.

Blues boss Frank Lampard will also be expecting to buy at the end of the season after expressing his frustration at not being able to recruit any new players in January, despite having a transfer ban overturned.

Sancho has transformed from an £8m young prodigy after moving in 2017 to a global superstar with 11 England caps to his name, a testament to the time and care given to his development by Dortmund.

The German side apparently know they can ask for more than £100m, which would eclipse the British record £89m spent by Manchester United on bringing Paul Pogba to Old Trafford in 2016.
