JADON SANCHO will have to push for a move to Manchester United in order to get the move over the line, according to reports.
United and Borussia Dortmund are locked in a standoff over the proposed transfer fee, with the German giants demanding £115million.
Now the Mirror claim Sancho may have to force the issue if he is to secure his move back to England.
Liverpool and Chelsea have also been linked with a move for the England star.
But with coronavirus hitting clubs hard financially, Man Utd are thought to be one of the few clubs able to afford the monster fee.
United had been hoping to land a cut-price £50m deal for Sancho – but Dortmund recently demanded at least £100m for the man they signed for just £7m in 2017 from Man City.
The Bundesliga giants are also claimed to have told United to hurry up and make their move in just three weeks or miss out on Sancho altogether.

Dortmund want to crack on with their preparations for next season – and getting Sancho's future sorted, one way or the other, is key to that.

With Man City's European ban overturned, Premier League clubs need to secure a top-four finish to book their spot in the Champions League.
Tottenham did United a huge favour by crushing Leicester on Sunday, giving the Red Devils a chance to move above them with a point in their game in hand.
The financial windfall from gaining a Champions League spot – as well as the ability to attract top players – could be crucial in United's pursuit of Sancho.
Earlier this week, Sancho refused to rule out a move to Old Trafford – but remained tight-lipped as to his future.
Sancho – who's currently on holiday in Ibiza with a mystery woman – told World Soccer magazine: "I don't know what to say to that.
"It's hard to say. That's the future.
"You never know what could happen, so we will wait and see."
