Jadon Sancho's camp reportedly expect the England international to complete a move to Manchester United this summer, despite Borussia Dortmund rejecting an offer from the Red Devils earlier this week.
Mirror Sport understands that United made an opening bid of £67m for the winger which Dortmund turned down.
The Bundesliga side are holding out for a fee of around £77m with another £4m in add-ons and, according to the Manchester Evening News, Sancho's representatives are confident an agreement can be reached.
The report also claims that Sancho has agreed personal terms in principle with United.
Dortmund's sporting director Michael Zorc has previously admitted that Sancho will be allowed to leave "under certain conditions" this summer.
Speaking to German outlet ARD, Zorc said: "We already had a gentlemen's agreement with Jadon last year that he can switch under certain conditions.
"He's been with us for a couple of years. However, this agreement does not exist with Erling [Haaland]."
Last week, Sancho admitted that his England team-mates have been asking him about the speculation, telling talkSPORT: "All the boys have a lot of questions.
"I just tell them - 'look, I'm just focused on football at the moment'. I'm cool about it. 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."
Should Jadon Sancho join Manchester United this summer? Comment below
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hoping to strengthen his squad this summer, admitting after their Europa League final defeat: "We are second best, but too far behind to threaten those who won. Then we have to strengthen ourselves.
"Of course, something will happen in the transition window. The world has become very different than 15-16 months ago, but we have to make some moves on the transfer window, but also with the team.
"It is never possible to sit back. You are constantly looking for reinforcements. Football is dynamic, so unexpected things can happen such as injuries, illness, something familiar or that someone wants to move.
"You have to take everything possible into consideration and reflection. I will never sit down and think that 'now the team is the way I want it to be', because you always see some other players or other teams doing something you want."
