Borussia Dortmund are encouraging Manchester United to go higher for Jadon Sancho.
BBC Sport says after having a £67m bid rejected for Sancho, United will consider a larger bid for the Englishman.
It comes after Dortmund told the Red Devils that they value the 21-year-old at £77.5m plus £4.25m in add-ons.
United are desperate to avoid a repeat of last summer where they missed out on the signing of Sancho.
The Bundesliga club demanded £109m at the time – a valuation United did not agree to as they tried to negotiate the price down but failed.
Dortmund have shaved off a large amount off their original asking price, yet the Red Devils are still reluctant to meet their total.
