Dortmund are likely to want the majority of the £86m paid up front, with the rest made up of achievable add-ons.

On Thursday Dharmesh Sheth reported on the ongoing talks between Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund over the transfer of Jadon Sancho, saying they are ‘moving in the right direction’
United remain the most “realistic destination” for Sancho – though other clubs are still interested.
Asked if his future is an unwanted distraction ahead of Euro 2020, Sancho told talkSPORT: “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.”
England manager Gareth Southgate says is pleased to see Jadon Sancho finish a ‘disrupted, difficult’ season in good form.
Potential future club team-mates Marcus Rashford, Dean Henderson, Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire are all in the England squad alongside Sancho as talk rumbles on, but the winger has been giving little away.
“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.”
