Manchester United have reportedly agreed terms on a five-year deal worth £340,000-a-week with Jadon Sancho.

 

The England international and Borussia Dortmund forward is on the verge of joining United with the two clubs in advanced talks over a deal worth £108million.

 

According to BILD, Sancho has now 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.

Other reports claimed United would pay £63m upfront and then £27m and £18m over the next two summers.

 

Negotiations are still ongoing but are expected to be finished within the next week, with Dortmund set to make a staggering profit having signed the winger for just £8m from United’s arch-rivals Manchester City in 2017.

 

A fee of £108m for the 20-year-old would see him become the most expensive player bought by an English club, topping the £89m Manchester United paid to sign Paul Pogba from Juventus in 2016.

The deal would also see Sancho become the club’s second-highest paid player behind David de Gea and the third top earner in the Premier League.

 

Sancho registered 17 goals and 17 assists across 32 Bundesliga games last season.
