Manchester United are set to bring Dortmund star, Jadon Sancho to Old Trafford, with the England forward having agreed personal terms on a five-year contract with the club.
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 €100m fee (£90m) over three annual instalments and a further €20m 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 rise on the five-year contract he signed at Dortmund in August 2019. The 20-year-old left Manchester City at the age of 17 to move to the Bundesliga in 2017 in an effort to secure first-team football. He scored 17 league goals and provided 16 assists last season and is expected to compete with Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and the emerging star Mason Greenwood for a place in Solskjær’s attack.
The impending departure of Alexis Sánchez to join Internazionale on a permanent deal has freed up funds for United to move for Sancho. Inter are not expected to pay a fee for the former Arsenal forward but will commit to taking over his contract worth £390,000 a week for the final 12 months of his three-year deal.
