Bayern Munich are ready to up their bids to sign Jadon Sancho, either this January or in the summer.
That will come as a major transfer blow to Manchester United and Chelsea – as well as Borussia Dortmund.
Both Premier League sides have made the 19-year-old their top target and groundwork over a deal is being laid.
Sancho is expected to leave in the summer as he enters the final two years of his contract and Dortmund aim to sell with his stock higher than ever.
United and Chelsea are not the only sides interested, with Real Madrid , Barcelona and Paris St-Germain all interested too.
But the Prem outfits will be facing up to the fact that Bayern Munich are also set to ramp up their efforts to snap up the Englishman.
According to the Metro , the German giants have now registered an interest in the teenager and want to make him the latest star to sign from Dortmund.
If he moves to Bavaria, Sancho will join the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Mario Gotze and Mats Hummels to make the same switch.
