The longest transfer saga in modern history might finally be coming to an end with Jadon Sancho’s arrival the club now seen as imminent. The winger was close to a move last year but reports now claim that an agreement between Manchester United and Dortmund is set to be reached.
Sancho is currently away with England but negotiations over his future have taken place during this summer’s European Championships, with closure not thought to be far away.
Journalist and transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano has provided an update on the situation, claiming that this week could represent the end of the 12-month long saga.
” I think this is maybe the last week, the last episode where we are talking about Jadon Sancho,” Romano told the Here We Go podcast. “In these hours something is happening. Manchester United and Dortmund are in direct contact.
“The agreement is getting really really close, “It’s not done yet, just the final details like payment structures & add-ons are missing to complete the agreement.”
The news will be welcomed by Manchester United supporters, who have withstood endless speculation since interest reportedly began last summer.
According to reports, the former Manchester City youth player is set for a huge wage boost upon signing his new contract at the club. That’s according to the Daily Star, who claim that Sancho will more than double his wages at Dortmund.
