Manchester United have been working on a deal to sign Jadon Sancho for the best part of over a year. The England international has been on the club’s radar for longer but now it looks like we are edging closer to making him a Manchester United player at long last.
Sancho, 21, is expected to sign a deal worth in excess of £250,000-a-week with bonuses (via The Telegraph), although a medical might have to wait until his Euro 2020 campaign comes to an end — and England take on Germany in the last-16 this evening.
On top of that, it is claimed that Dortmund are already preparing for life after Sancho. PSV Eindhoven forward Noni Madueke is the player they seem to be tracking in attempt to replace their departing English star. Madueke came through Tottenham Hotspur’s academy before joining PSV in 2019 and made his debut for England U21s in March.
However, being a Manchester United fan and not getting impatient over the Sancho transfer is not easy. I caught up with Fabrizio Romano for the podcast and asked how far away we are from confirmation.
“We are very close,” Romano told the Strettycast. “It’s not done yet but it’s just a matter of some clauses about payment structure and then the deal will be completed in the next few days. They are at advanced stages, the player wants to join United and they are very close an agreement with Borussia Dortmund. Let’s wait a bit but we are really close.”
It won’t be long before Romano tweets ‘here we go’ about Sancho!
