Man Utd have Jadon Sancho agreement with Dortmund as £81.5m transfer nears completion

Manchester United are looking to seal the signing of Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.

Posted Monday, June 21, 2021 by

Manchester United have agreed to pay Borussia Dortmund most of their £81.5million asking price for Jadon Sancho up front, according to reports. The England international is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s main aim for the summer transfer window. And a blockbuster move to Old Trafford now seems close to completion.

Manchester United have admired Sancho for a number of years.

The club first tried to sign the England international from Manchester City in 2017, only to miss out to Borussia Dortmund instead.

And, since then, it’s been a similar story.

United thought they could get Sancho two years ago but, after failing to finish in the Premier League top four, swooped for Daniel James instead.

And they also missed out 12 months ago, walking away from a deal after Borussia Dortmund’s massive £108m price tag put them off.

Now, United are hoping to succeed when it comes to Sancho.

And the Mirror claim they’ve agreed to pay Dortmund most of their £81.5m asking price for Sancho up front, rather than in instalments.

United have used structured payments to sign players in the past but the German side would prefer to bank a large sum all in one go so it can be used on potential replacements.

At last, United’s pursuit of Sancho appears to be nearing completion.

And he’s not the only player the club are hoping to land in this summer’s transfer window, with Solskjaer also eyeing reinforcements in multiple other departments.

Up top, a return for Cristiano Ronaldo hasn’t been ruled out.

The Juventus star already appears to have said goodbye to the Serie A giants, who are determined to get him off the wage bill following the return of Massimiliano Allegri as manager.
