Manchester United received a boost in the pursuit of Jadon Sancho as Borussia Dortmund was reported to be willing to accept fees lower than its original £ 108m price tag.
United Sancho made their first goal at the start of the summer but was unable to assemble a nine-figure pack.
The Red Devils made their first approach earlier this week but Dortmund re-bid the £ 91million.
The Bundesliga team has been stubborn during the talks between the mediators, but it looks like their position may be waning.

Sancho was excluded from the squad that traveled to Bayern Munich to participate in the German Super Cup final last night.
“Respiratory trouble” was cited due to his absence from the team.
However, Sancho may also be close to exit as Dortmund is ready to accept a deal worth £ 95 million, according to The Scottish Sun.
United will be happy to receive a discount of £ 13m off the original price and validate Ed Woodward’s decision to deliver the transfer to the last week of the window.
