The transfer saga that is Jadon Sancho to Manchester United has been one of the mainstays of the transfer window this year.
Sancho is coming off a stellar season for Borussia Dortmund. The England international starred for the Black Yellow last term, scoring 17 times and setting up 16 more in 25 Bundesliga starts.
Sancho is valued at €117 million (per Transfermarkt) and interest in the 20-year old is high from clubs all across Europe. Several outlets have touted a move to Manchester United as the most likely, with varying degrees of certainty.
BILD claims Sancho has already put pen to paper on personal terms and all that needs to be determined before the deal can go through is the structure of the transfer. The German outfit is reporting that Manchester United have agreed £340,000-a-week deal with Jadon Sancho.
However, per MEN, Manchester United are relaxed about the transfer and have not agreed on personal terms with the English winger. The English outfit stated that “United were irritated by inaccurate reports emanating from Germany that they had agreed on terms with Sancho” and that “United sources have described Sancho’s wage expectations as a ‘real situation'”.
Manchester United have received a message by BVB… €120m or you’ll not get Sancho. It’s up to Man Utd. Let’s see what they’ll decide. BVB will not accept bids like €80m+20+20 in four or five years.

Sky Italia‘s Fabrizio Romano reports that Dortmund are firm on their stance, and will only sell Sancho to United if their valuation of the winger is met.
Sky Sports claim the 20-year old is willing to tell Dortmund he wants to leave should a reasonable offer come in from the Manchester club. Dortmund are holding out for €120 million but the report claims that should a similar offer come in Sancho would do his bit to try to make the transfer materialise.
It remains to be seen if the transfer will materialise, but with the Premier League set to resume in about three weeks, United will need to step up their approach should they wish to acquire Sancho’s services.
