According to Sky Sports, Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund have reached an agreement in principle to sign England winger Jadon Sancho for a sum of roughly 73 million pounds ($101 million).

Last year, the 21-year-old had emerged as United’s top transfer target, with British media speculating that the Premier League club had made an offer of over 100 million euros ($118.5 million), but the deal fell through.

Personal terms between Sancho and the Premier League giants have been finalised, according to Sky Sports, with the player expected to join them after England’s European Championship campaign passing a medical.

Sancho has played only six minutes as a substitute in England’s 1-0 Group D triumph over the Czech Republic to reach the Euro 2020 quarter-finals. On Saturday, Gareth Southgate’s side will face Ukraine in the last eight.

Sancho, who joined Dortmund from Manchester City at the age of 17 in 2017, has made over 100 appearances for the club and recently signed a contract extension until 2023.

In the 2020-21 season, Sancho scored 16 goals and added 20 assists in 38 games for Dortmund across all competitions. With a third-place finish in the Bundesliga, he helped Dortmund qualify for the Champions League.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to improve his attacking options after finishing second in the Premier League last season, 12 points behind champions Manchester City.
