Borussia Dortmund officials have given an indication that they may be close to agreeing a deal to sell Jadon Sancho to Manchester United, as one of the longest transfer sagas of them all looks set to finally come to an end.

United's have upped their offer for England star Sancho to €85million and while Dortmund's asking price has always been €95million, there appears to be a willingness to get the deal over the line on both sides.

The structure of a deal that will allow United to finally sign the player they have been chasing for over a year is now under discussion, with Dortmund keen to claim they have a deal that could be worth up to €95million.

The latest reports in Germany suggest the add-ons that will make up the final part of the deal remain a sticking point, with claims that Sancho has agreed terms with United recently wide of the mark.

In fact, Sancho and his advisers have been satisfied with the terms of the contract United have been offering for some time, with the only reason the player did not move to Old Trafford last summer being the Manchester club's refusal to pay Dortmund's asking price.

Now it appears the deal is all-but inevitable, yet there is no rush to confirm the deal while Sancho remains a part of England's Euro 2020 squad.

Meanwhile, Paul Pogba has been asked about rumours that he set to offered a chance to return to Juventus this summer.

Pogba has just one year left on his United contract and has made no secret of his continued affection for Juve after his successful spell at the club between 2012 and 2016.

With Pogba apparently unlikely to sign a new United deal, the Old Trafford club could look to cash in on the midfielder, who has died his hair in black and white Juventus colours.

When asked whether he was tempted to move back to Juve after France's 2-2 draw with Portugal, he offered this response: "My hair was black and white like the Juventus shirt tonight? I was expecting this question. I'm not thinking about my future, I'm only focused on the Euros. And my hair always changes, you know."

Pogba turned in another magnificent performance for France in the draw with Portugal, with his displays on the international stage more consistent that he has shown at United in recent years.
