Man United Closing in on Sancho



Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund are close to agreeing a fee for Jadon Sancho, with the England forward having agreed personal terms on a five-year contract at Old Trafford.

Both clubs are understood to be confident a deal to make Sancho the most expensive English player in history is nearing completion, with United expected to pay an initial £90m (€100m) over three annual instalments and a further £18m in performance-related add-ons. Dortmund would prefer to have the transfer completed by next week to help them bring in a replacement.

It is understood that Sancho, Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s key target, will earn about £250,000 a week – a significant improvement on the five-year contract he signed at Dortmund in August 2019.

The forward left Manchester City at the age of 17 for the Bundesliga in 2017 in an effort to secure first-team football.
