Manchester United transfer news: Club agrees personal terms with Jadon Sancho

However, the Red Devils are yet to agree a deal with Borussia Dortmund.

Manchester United have agreed personal terms with Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho, according to reports.

The England international was United’s leading transfer target last summer, but they were ultimately unable to get a deal over the line.

A failure to meet Dortmund’s asking price before a self-imposed deadline meant Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side had to look elsewhere.

United have retained an interest in Sancho ever since, and intend to bring him to Old Trafford this summer.

Solskjaer is set to be given around £150m to spend in the upcoming transfer market, reports claim.

Sancho, who scored 16 goals and provided 14 assists for Dortmund in 2020/21, is said to be keen on a return to English football after Euro 2020.

And according to sport United have taken a huge step towards completing the signing by agreeing personal terms with the player.

The German outlet states that Sancho and United reached an agreement last summer and those discussions have been revived in recent weeks.

The English club must now submit a formal offer to BVB, who have admitted that Sancho could seek pastures new before the start of next season.

Dortmund held out for £108m for the youngster last summer, but they have now dropped their asking price to around £80m.

The coronavirus pandemic has had an adverse effect on the club’s finances, so Dortmund are now more willing to do business.
