According to The Athletic, the Premier League side will pay a fee of around £72.6 million for the 21-year-old winger. The player will now finalise personal terms before completing his move to Old Trafford.

The player is currently away on international duty with England.

Jadon Sancho Transfer Saga

Sancho has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford for several months now, and United tried to sign him last summer as well.

The saga has finally come to an end, and United fans will be delighted with a marquee signing.

What Sancho will bring to Manchester United?

Manchester United finished second in the Premier League last year, and they will be hoping to close the gap with Manchester City.

The right-wing position was a significant problem for Manchester United last season, and Sancho’s arrival will improve them immensely.

He is likely to partner the likes of Marcus Rashford and Edinson Cavani in the attack next year, and United certainly have a formidable attacking try on paper.

Sancho will add flair, pace and goals to the side next season. He managed to score 16 goals and pick up 20 assists across all competitions last season, and there is no doubt that he has the potential to develop into a superstar for Manchester United.

It will be interesting to see if Sancho can help them challenge for the Premier League title next season.
