Manchester United look to be close to sealing their first signing of the summer – and it’s a big one.
The Red Devils are looking to build on their second-place finish last season, hoping to win the Premier League title for the first time since 2013, the year Sir Alex Ferguson departed.
Their hunt for England international Jadon Sancho, who has played just six minutes for the Three Lions at Euro 2020, has well and truly been a saga for the last 12 months, but it could finally be over soon.
But for every end, a beginning, as another transfer fiasco dawns in the red half of Manchester.
It seems there’s been a breakthrough in United’s pursuit of the Borussia Dortmund winger.
Multiple reports followed Bild’s story, claiming that an agreement was close and that things could potentially be sealed ‘in the next few days.’
BBC Sport state that the Red Devils’ latest bid is worth €85million (£72.6m) and although it’s unlikely to be accepted by BVB chiefs due it still being short of their valuation, the deal is now seen as an eventually.
It’s been widely reported that personal terms have been agreed with Sancho, who has managed 50 goals and 64 assists in 137 games for Dortmund.
Sancho recently told talkSPORT regarding his future: “I’m cool about it.
There’s always going to be speculation, especially when you do well,” said the 21-year-old.
“It’s just how you handle that on the pitch. You’ve got to keep doing what you’re doing, if you keep on doing that then I’m sure that won’t be a problem.”
