Manchester United have increased their offer for Borussia Dortmund striker Jadon Sancho valued at more than £75 million.

The Red Devils would pay more upfront in the planned deal, with the balance paid in possible add-ons. 

Man Utd's original offer was said to be £67 million upfront plus about £8 million in add-ons. 

Dortmund is said to be contemplating the latest offer, despite rumors in Germany that Sancho is worth more than £80 million.

Sancho's most logical destination remains Manchester United, while other teams are also monitoring his situation thoroughly. 

However, both sides are eager to reach an agreement before Sancho's current contract expires in the summer of 2023.

Quizzed if his future is an unwanted distraction ahead of

Euro 2020

, Sancho told 



"No, I'm cool about it.

"You know, there's always going to be speculation, especially when you do well.

"It's just how you handle that on the pitch and just keep doing what you're doing.

"If you keep on doing that then I'm sure that won't be a problem because the main thing is my football and that's what I'm focused on at the moment."

As speculation mounts, Marcus Rashford, Dean Henderson, Luke Shaw, and Harry Maguire are all in the England team with Sancho, but the 21-year-old winger has remained tight-lipped.

"Of course all the boys have a lot of questions, you know," he added.

"I feel like that's with a lot of players because we're all such great young talents and, you know, when you do well - again, like I said - speculation is always going to come around.

"Again, I just tell the boys, 'look, I'm just focused on football at the moment,' and we just focus on the Euros, step by step."
