Man United already have Jadon Sancho transfer agreement as new Dortmund price comes to light

Manchester United already have a transfer agreement in place with Jadon Sancho, according to reports.

The Red Devils spent all of last summer trying to prise the England international away from Borussia Dortmund.

The winger’s £108million price tag was not met so he remained in the Bundesliga for another season.

Sancho has had a below-par campaign as interest in his services has dwindled.

The 21-year-old has been in the shadow of Erling Haaland, who has become one of the most prolific strikers in world football.

However, United still have a void on their right flank and are keen to fill the hole this summer.

Young striker Mason Greenwood has been used out of position ahead of Dan James, who is not seen as a long-term solution.

United are expected to return for Sancho and the Athletic claim an agreement is already in place between the club and player.

Salary expectations and agent fees, which were agreed on last summer, will apparently remain the same.

That means all United have to do is convince Dortmund to sell the former Manchester City youngster.

Former United defender Gary Neville reckons Sancho will be the club’s main signing this summer.

“I think Sancho comes in [this summer] on that right-hand side, with Greenwood as a potential back-up,” he said on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football.

“Up front you’ve then got Cavani and Greenwood. On the left [Marcus] Rashford and {Anthony] Martial, and then you’ve got [Paul] Pogba who could potentially fit there [on the left] if he’s not playing in midfield.

“If you sign Kane or a Haaland, which is what’s being mooted, I don’t think that works for Manchester United … [the policy of] allowing young players to emerge like Greenwood, making sure Rashford plays.

“[Donny] van de Beek can’t get a game. I think it’s Sancho and that’s their business done.”

However, his co-pundit Jamie Carragher disagreed.

“I don’t think they’d have the centre-forward [to challenge for the title, without signing one],” said Carragher.

“I absolutely love Cavani. But the big thing for me is Greenwood, he’s a superstar. If you bring Sancho in, he’s got to play 70-80 per cent of the games on the right, where he plays. So then you’ve got a really old guy who’s done brilliantly, or a really young guy who’s not quite ready physically to lead the line for United.

“I think Manchester United buying a Harry Kane or a Haaland and using Greenwood on the right cutting inside on the left foot, I think he’s brilliant at that. I’d be really wary if they bought Sancho of stunting Greenwood’s progress.”

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix.

Felix has endured a difficult start to the season for Atletico and is yet to score in five starts in the league.

Last season wasn’t much better for Felix, only managing 24 league starts.
With competition up top including French international Antoine Griezmann, Felix is often used as a rotation option under Diego Simeone.

Now, according to Fichajes, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal all interested in signing the striker.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea will need to find a long-term replacement for their current first-choice strikers.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both reaching the latter stage of their careers for their respective clubs, so bringing a player with a similar age profile to Felix would be a smart move.

A move to Arsenal may not benefit Felix’s development as much, with Gabriel Jesus performing exceptionally well for the North London club and still only 25 years old.

Manchester United and fellow Premier League clubs are counting down the days until they can strike-up further business in the transfer market. Erik ten Hag welcomed six players to Old Trafford during his first window and they have all made their mark in the starting XI.

Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez have all quickly become mainstays, while Antony broke a record set by Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he scored on Sunday night. That 2-1 victory over Everton also saw former Real Madrid player Casemiro handed his first Premier League start for the club.

Martin Dubravka was the other recruit, signing on a season-long loan from Newcastle.

With one eye on January and future windows, meanwhile, United are understood to still have Frenkie de Jong on their radar, while elite clubs from across Europe will be queuing up for Jude Bellingham should he decided to leave Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the near transfer window.

Bellingham plays alongside plenty of Chelsea stars on the international stage with England, so let’s hope they can put in a good word to try tempt him to the Bridge.

He’s an all – action central midfielder that offers so much both offensively and defensively.
