Manchester United have today agreed a deal in principle with Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund for the signing of England international attacker Jadon Sancho. The youngster will sign a five year deal at Old Trafford.
Sancho, who previously played for bitter rivals Man City, has already opened discussions with representatives of Manchester United and Eyefootball understands that a deal has been reached with the player and his likely new club. It is rumoured that Sancho will earn £225,000 per week at his new club and will occupy the number 7 shirt previously worn by numerous legends such as Cristiano Ronaldo and David Beckham. The shirt is currently Edinson Cavani‘s at United, but the Uruguayan attacker will make way to hand over ownership to Sancho.
The United forward man has caught the eye in Germany with a number of explosive displays over the past two seasons, but has always hinted his likely next destination will be a return to the Premier League.
In recent times, several German clubs have made moves for English talent, including Sancho’s Dortmund, who recently signed fellow English youngster Jude Bellingham.
United expect to announce the completed transfer for Sancho in the next 10 days.
