And they also want an additional £4.25m bonus payment on top of that initial fee.
However, BBC Sport also claims United’s offer was not only too low, but they also wanted to pay it over a five-year period.
And that was unacceptable to Dortmund – who were only willing to stretch to four years.
The Red Devils are now believed to be ‘considering revising’ their offer as they hope to avoid a repeat of last summer’s failed transfer fiasco.
Dortmund told United exactly how much they wanted for the 21-year-old 12 months ago.
But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side refused to meet it, believing wrongly that the Bundesliga outfit would eventually sell for a much lower price.
Dortmund do have a gentleman's agreement with Sancho, who is preparing for Euro 2020 with the Three Lions, that they will allow him to leave the club if their valuation of him is met.
We reported earlier that United have already agreed personal terms with Sancho in a deal until 2026.

That appeared to have moved the transfer one step closer to happening before this latest report emerged.
The two clubs were unable to come to terms last summer, as Dortmund demanded £108m.
At the time, United were unwilling to match the price tag and instead moved for Edison Cavani, 34, on a free transfer.
In the period since, the German giants dropped their valuation and opened the door to selling Sancho, due to financial strains amid the coronavirus pandemic.
And United made it clear they were still after their man, with the England international, 21, also pushing for a move to Old Trafford.
Sancho, a former City academy graduate, is currently on international duty and any move could be officially delayed until after the delayed European Championship.
