Jaden Sancho seems to have finally headed for Manchester United from Borussia Dortmund after a long chase on the wing. United have agreed to an agreement in principle to sign Sancho for 85 million euros ($ 100 million) from Dortmund, a person who knows about the deal said on Wednesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to publicly discuss a transfer that has not yet been completed.
Sancho, 21, is currently on the England squad for the European Championships as the team prepares for its quarter-finals with Ukraine on Saturday. Although Sancho commanded a large fee after impressing in the Bundesliga, he has not yet started for England in the tournament.
Sancho started his career at Manchester City, but turned down a deal to stay and joined Dortmund in 2017. He scored 38 times in his 104 Bundesliga appearances. He is now set to be a fierce local rival to City to help United bring down his neighbor as a Premier League champion. The new season starts for United on August 14 against Leeds.
