MANCHESTER UNITED are moving a step closer to signing Jadon Sancho after beginning talks over personal terms, according to reports.
The Red Devils have reignited their interest in the Borussia Dortmund winger after failing to land him last summer.

The Bundesliga club set their asking price at £108million a year ago forcing United to walk away from the deal empty handed.
But Dortmund are now ready to cash in on the 21-year-old for a cut-price £82m, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.
He also adds how United club chiefs have started negotiations with the player’s representatives.

Writing on Twitter, Romano said: “Man United are in contact with Sancho’s camp on personal terms but still no official bid. BVB want €95m (£82m).”
Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants a new right winger to bolster his attacking options ahead of next season.
Personal terms between player and club shouldn’t be too much of an issue with Sancho eager to make the switch back to England.
Sporting director Michael Zorc further conceded Sancho is likely to leave Dortmund with a gentleman’s agreement in place from last season.
He said: “We already had a gentlemen’s agreement with Jadon last year that he can switch under certain conditions.
