To the brilliant Ed002, a while back you mentioned that if United wanted to sign Sancho, they would need to press ahead with agreeing a deal before the Summer (potentially Euros? ) . Had the club made any progress on this front?

{Ed002's Note - There are discussions going on with Dortmund but the club need to overcome the issues of additional costs.}

Thanks Ed, really appreciate your time.
Have prices been agreed and now it is a matter of over what period the various additional bits are paid?

{Ed002's Note - No it is nothing like that.}

i think it might just get done this deal this time round.

maybe Dortmund want to see how well he does in the euros they can ask for that bit extra if he shines.

would be nice to get deals done before then but its unlikely

just hope this doesn't drag on all summer and we focus just on sancho

we still need a cb and a cm while also offloading

the men behind the scenes need to be ruthless this window.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained - Dortmund want transfers, in and out, addressed as soon as possible.}

Its usually at this stage that Dortmund ask for a fee and United offer to pay a portion of the fee with the rest being made up of payments made when United win trophies. As United's trophy haul has been limited of late, Dortmund want the cash up front.

Ed would this seemingly be related to the fees demanded by the "agent" of Sancho, from both Dortmund and United since he is seemingly the go between?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, and some other costs.}

Thanks for the answer. The fee Dortmund want seems much more reasonable. I know you don't like to speculate, does this issue seem like something United can resolve?

{Ed002's Note - Sure if they pay up - the other clubs his agent has been talking to are not going

Right, that makes sense. Sounds like Chelsea have no interest in paying those extra costs, per what you've said prior. I hope United do it now, it's surely cheaper overall than last summer, but with this club.

Chelsea currently have Havertz, Ziyech, Pulisic, Hudson-Odoi, Werner and Mount who are either all comfortable or best suited to playing in the wide forward areas.

With 6 players for 2 starting spots I really don't see why they would be interested in spending a sizeable amount on a player Like Sancho.

Surely with Giroud (not a long term option), Abrahams (not good enough) and Werner (looks more suited to playing wide left) as striker options then it is a centre forward they really need.

While another top class CB wouldn't go amiss.

{Ed002's Note - You have listed several players who will be leaving.}

Running out of time before the Euros get underway. Is it going to happen before the weekend?
