Jadon Sancho-Borussia Dortmund

Manchester United are closing in on the signing of the Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

The England international has already agreed on personal terms with the Premier League club, and agent fees have already been agreed upon.

According to ESPN, the deal is now close to completion. Manchester United are willing to pay £72 million for the young winger, and Dortmund are holding out for a fee of around £77 million.

It is fair to assume that the two clubs will find a compromise in the coming days.

The Times are reporting that the deal could be done next week. 

The 21-year-old is keen on a move to Old Trafford, this summer and he could prove to be a sensational addition to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

Manchester United are in desperate need of a right-sided winger, and Sancho is one of the best in the world in that position.

The 21-year-old has had an outstanding campaign with Dortmund this past year, and he managed to score 16 goals and pick up 20 assists in all competitions.

There is no doubt that he would be one of the best players at Manchester United if he joins the club this summer.

It remains to be seen whether the two parties can finalise the move in the coming weeks.

It would be fair to assume that Sancho’s future won’t be resolved until the European Championships are over. The player is currently away on international duty with England.
