- Talks ongoing over record fee for an English player
- Sancho expected to sign five-year deal at Old Trafford
Manchester United are in advanced negotiations with Borussia Dortmund to sign Jadon Sancho for an initial €100m (£90m) – a fee that would set a transfer record for an English player.
United have been tracking Sancho for some time, with talks over a move for the former Manchester City player having intensified in recent weeks. While there is no agreement yet with Dortmund as it stands, it is understood the German club could accept a deal that would involve United paying the fee in instalments over the next two or three seasons for the England forward, with a further €20m potentially due in performance-related add-ons.
