Manchester United supporters were sent into a frenzy on Friday evening when reports of an agreement with Borussia Dortmund started to circulate on social media. In truth, it is believed that there is no agreement yet but that the transfer of Jadon Sancho is close to being completed.
According to reports, the two clubs are close to reaching a compromise and there is confidence that a deal can be concluded but with Euro 2020 in full swing, when can Manchester United fans expect to see an official announcement?
According to The Athletic, an agreement could be struck with the German club during the European Championships, but that the formal side of the transfer might be finalised after Sancho’s involvement in the tournament ends.
The publication claim that first-team bubbles, such as COVID-19 protection regulations, are considered an obstacle to completing the obligatory medical.
England face Germany in their round-of-16 tie on Tuesday and should Gareth Southgate’s side be eliminated, supporters are likely to be comforted with the transfer of Jadon Sancho being announced by the club.
