Manchester United have reportedly agreed an €85 million (£73m) fee with Borussia Dortmund for Jadon Sancho, according to BBC Sport.

The England international has been a long-term target for United, and it seems they will finally land him this summer.

Last summer, United made several attempts to sign him, but they couldn’t meet the player’s valuation. This time, both the clubs have finally found some common ground.

According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Manchester City will receive around €13m as part of the deal.

The Athletic’s David Ornstein has claimed that the 21-year-old has been given the green light to finalise personal terms and undergo a medical before completing his move to Old Trafford.

Sancho is a top-quality winger who has been outstanding for Dortmund in the past few seasons.

He has scored 50 goals in 137 appearances for the German club and bagged 13 goals in his last 21 games in 2020-21.

The England winger is expected to sign a five-year contract until 2026, with the option of a sixth. The fee is payable over five equal instalments.

This is how some United fans reacted on Twitter after the news broke out. Many feel that he is one of the bargains of the summer window.

Sancho will become the second-most expensive English player of all time behind Harry Maguire. United signed Maguire from Leicester City in 2019 for £80m.
