But United are looking to 'sort out the salary and fees of intermediaries' before making an official offer.
Dortmund are in no rush to sell Sancho – who has three years left to run on his contract in Germany – with the club confident he will stay.
And according to the Daily Mail, United are in a race against time to sign Sancho having made little progress in their quest to sign him.
They claim that there has hardly been any progress in talks surrounding the agents fee, as well as what Sancho's salary would be at Old Trafford.
And the news outlet also states that the club appear unlikely to sign RB Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano this summer.
Meanwhile the club are yet to make a bid for Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilon, despite Spanish media reporting they offered Los Blancos £27m.
United have made just one signing this window, with Dutch midfielder Donny van de Beek joining from Ajax for £39m on Wednesday.
But Sancho is the player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been desperate to bring to the club.
The 20-year-old has opened up on speculation regarding his future, where he stated he isn't paying attention to rumours.
Asked whether he wishes the rumours would go away, he said: "No, the media’s the media.
"They’re always going to try and create a story, but this is how you manage it.
"For me, I just focus on my football. I just want to do what’s best for my team and win titles at the end of the day."
