Man Utd expect to seal Sancho transfer after Euro 2020

Jadon Sancho

Manchester United expect to announce the transfer of Jadon Sancho after the Euros.

United are locked in negotiations with Borussia Dortmund and have agreed on personal terms with the England winger, worth £350,000-a-week over five years.

The German club are insisting United increase their offer of £61million to £78m, with a further £10m in add-ons, but this is expected to happen.

And Dortmund have told United they must complete the transfer by July 23, when the Bundesliga giants head off on their pre-season training camp.

Sancho last night confirmed United’s players have been speaking to him on England duty about a move to Old Trafford.

He said: “Of course, all the boys have a lot of questions. When you do well, speculation is always going to come around.

“I just tell the boys, ‘look, I’m focused on football at the moment’ and we just focus on the Euros, step by step.”

Speaking to talkSPORT, Sancho was asked if he could be distracted by the move during the Euros.

He said: “No, I’m cool about it. It’s just how you handle that on the pitch, so just keep doing what you’re doing.

“If you keep doing that then I’m sure it won’t be a problem because the main thing is my football and that’s what I’m focused on at the moment.”

United expect the deal to go through smoothly after a summer of wrangling last year when they refused to meet Dortmund’s £110m price.

United decided to dedicate their efforts to getting the 21–year-old rather than a drawn out pursuit of Erling Haaland.

The Old Trafford club spoke to Haaland and his representatives.

But the striker, also at Dortmund, made it clear he has his heart set on a move to Real Madrid.

Unfortunately for him, their financial problems could rule him out of a move to the Spaniards.

Chelsea are prepared to match the £154.5m price for the 20-year-old Leeds-born goal machine.

Manchester City are also interested and can match the price tag.

The English champions are badly in need of a striker with Sergio Aguero having now left.

But United did not want to get into an expensive fight that could leave them empty-handed.

Sancho has thrived at Dortmund after spending his youth career with Watford and then City.

In 82 games in his last two seasons for the German club he has hit 36 goals and provided 40 assists.
