- Club reported to have beaten rivals after signing
- Borussia Dortmund wants to keep Sancho, whom they assess at £ 100 million
Manchester United believe they have stolen the step to sign the English star Jadon Sancho this summer.
The Red Devils want to strengthen their team with the signing of 20-year-old Borussia Dortmund from the Bundesliga team.
The Sun has now reported that the player and the club have “accepted almost all of the details of a move to Old Trafford.”
Manchester United “thinks they have beaten their rivals” at the signing of Jadon Sancho
It is believed that Sancho’s contract term, salary, bonuses and buyout clause have all been agreed – although United must now agree on costs with the German side.
The striker is valued at £ 100 million and is expected to leave the club at the end of the season after the coronavirus closes.
A fantastic season that saw Sancho score 17 goals and provide 19 assists to Dortmund in the Bundesliga and the Champions League has made him the hottest field in Europe.
The Red Devils aren’t the only club to have been linked to the talented youngster, Premier League rivals Chelsea and Real Madrid are both linked to the winger.
Sancho scored 17 goals and 19 assists for Borussia Dortmund this season
Sancho joined Dortmund at the age of 17 after losing patience with his lack of playing time under Pep Guardiola in Manchester City.
His move to the Bundesliga has revived his career and after three years of absence, Sancho would be delighted to return to England.
Dortmund wants to keep Sancho, who was hired at the Westfalenstadion until 2022, but is resigned to the player’s choice to leave this year.
Sancho joined Dortmund in 2017 and has become one of the hottest properties in Europe
Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke said Bild last month: “Even before the coronavirus epidemic, we said we prefer Jadon to stay with us.
“In the end, however, you always have to respect what the player wants. “
If Sancho joined Manchester United for its expected value, it would break the Red Devil transfer record set with the signing of Paul Pogba’s £ 89m in 2016.
