Post created on June 30, 2021
Manchester United have agreed a fee in principle with Borussia Dortmund for England winger Jadon Sancho.
It is understood United will pay Dortmund 85m euros (£73m) for the 21-year-old, who joined them from Manchester City in 2017.
Personal terms are yet to be finalised and a medical completed but neither are expected to be a problem.
The news will be welcomed by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who wants to build on United’s progress last season.
The United boss has identified four key positions he wants to improve: right side of his midfield, then the central defensive, midfield and attacking areas.
Sancho fills the first of those.

Jadon Sancho in all competitions for Borussia Dortmund:
2017-18: 5 goals, 7 assists
2018-19: 13 goals, 20 assists
2019-20: 20 goals, 20 assists
2020-21: 16 goals, 20 assists
He’s still only 21 years old.
The news brings to an end a long chase for the Londoner, who shone in Watford’s academy.
United expected to sign him last summer but could not agree a fee.
