With two premier league games remaining, they continues to be strong interests of how Manchester united will finish the season with one point separating them from third place Chelsea,after to their 2-0 win over Crystal palace on Thursday night.

Meanwhile,Manchester united are said to be preparing for next season as the club is being continuously linked with some players and they are one of few teams who will have money to spend this summer despite the corona virus outbreak which have had an impact on the finances of football clubs.

But according to reports,Manchester united and Borussia Dortmund are close to reaching an agreement for Jadon Sancho with the £100m-rated star crucial to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's attacking plans.

The Red Devils have long been linked with a move for Sancho, who has netted 20 goals in 44 appearances for Dortmund this season.

They face competition from a number of top sides, however, with Premier League rivals Chelsea and Liverpool among the other teams circling.

But according to the sun, United have stepped up their pursuit of the England international and are close to finally sealing a deal.

Sancho, who was on bitter rival Manchester City's academy books before joining Dortmund in 2017, is understood to be keen on moving to Old Trafford this summer.

United have not been short of firepower in recent weeks; during Project Restart, they have bagged 19 goals in seven outings.

Anthony Martial, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood in particular have been thriving of late.

Nevertheless, Solskjaer is still determined to bolster his Frontline and put together a squad which could match that of his own glory days at the club.

And at 20 years of age, Sancho fits the Norwegian's vision for a young, vibrant team at Old Trafford.

According to reports from the times, though, United will have to fork out £100million to sign him.

Dortmund are not budging on their six figure valuation of Sancho and will not accept a smaller offer including add ons.

Earlier this summer, Solskjaer admitted he wasn't aware how much United's transfer budget had been affected by the corona virus pandemic.

"We'll have to take a big look at things ourselves to see how hard we've been hit," he said.

"It's not for me to say we are going to have X amount because I don't really know.

"We are a financially strong club, but we are also probably being hit more than anybody else".
