Manchester United won race to sign Jadon Sancho

It appears Manchester United have won the race to sign Jadon Sancho with reports claiming the details of his transfer to Old Trafford are ‘almost agreed’.

The Sun claim the Borussia Dortmund forward wants to join the Red Devils three years after leaving their local rivals Man City, and his contract length, salary, bonuses and buyout clause have all been agreed.

Months of secret talks are claimed to have taken place between the two parties, and now United must reach an agreement with Dortmund over the fee.

He’s expected to go for well over £100million, and this value is likely to rise given Chelsea and Liverpool may instigate a bidding war amid their interest in Sancho.

BVB will make a staggering profit on Sancho when he is sold, having signed him in 2017 for just £8m from City.

United have also reportedly offered Sancho the number seven shirt in a bid to tempt him to the club.

Flop Alexis Sanchez currently holds that number but his days at Old Trafford appear all but over.

The Mirror say United are working hard to seal a deal for Borussia Dortmund and England winger Sancho and believe handing him the No.7 could convince him.
