Leading football journalist Fabrizio Romano has offered Manchester United fans an exciting update ahead of the club’s relentless pursuit of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.
Despite the player currently being away on international duty with Gareth Southgate’s England, Sancho is continuing to see his long-term domestic future speculated.
Widely expected to join Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at United later this summer, the Red Devils do finally appear to be closing in on their man.
It has been extensively covered that the club’s hierarchy has recently rebuffed their initial bid for the young winger, with the figure now understood to be just over £72m (BBC Sport).
However, while fans wait to learn Dortmund’s final decision, the latest in the ongoing saga comes from Romano who has revealed that the Red Devils have never been so close to landing their number-one target.
