Manchester United ‘close to agreeing £80m deal for Jadon Sancho’

Manchester United are reportedly nearing an agreement with Borussia Dortmund over an £80m deal for Jadon Sancho.
The England international was strongly linked with a switch to Old Trafford last summer, but the Red Devils could not come to an agreement with Dortmund over a transfer fee.

The speculation surrounding Sancho’s future has again gathered pace in recent weeks, with Man United making strong ground in their pursuit of the former Manchester City youngster.

Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano claimed on Friday that the 21-year-old ‘had never been closer’ to joining the 20-time English champions, having already settled on personal terms with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

According to The Mirror, Man United have almost agreed a deal for the Englishman worth an initial £75m, plus an additional £5m in add-ons.

The report claims that Sancho, who has also been linked with Chelsea and Liverpool, is expected to earn in the region of £250,000 a week at Old Trafford.

The attacker has scored 50 goals and registered 64 assists in 137 appearances for BVB since joining the German giants from Man City in 2017.

An announcement from either club is not expected to arrive until after this summer’s European Championship, as Sancho looks to help the Three Lions challenge for the trophy.
