Although a formal announcement is yet to come, Manchester United are expected to complete the signing of Jadon Sancho imminently. The 21-year-old is the subject of a two-year-long transfer saga but after endless speculation, the former Manchester City youth player will commit to a five-year stay at Old Trafford.
The deal is expected to put United back £73m but according to new reports, the club will not stop there. Sancho will join Tom Heaton and become the club’s second acquisition of the summer and according to the Manchester Evening News, United want to bring in another two ‘major’ signings.
Furthermore, it is claimed in the report that Manchester United are ‘confident’ they will complete a deal to bring Raphael Varane to Old Trafford whilst Kieran Trippier, who remains a target, has made arrangements to return to England.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to have received backing for the signing of Trippier and the former Tottenham and Manchester City defender even asked about the club during the England camp in March earlier this year.
