An agreement has been reached for England’s Jadon Sancho to Manchester United, according to multiple reports in Europe.

‘The Sancho Saga’ has finally come to an end after more a year of both clubs hassling over the fee. Reports say Dortmund accepted Man United’s bid of £73m additional £5m on add-ons, however, these are described as quite ‘tough to reach’.

No official announcement from either clubs yet, but the young England international will complete his medical in the coming days.

Sancho has been on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Manchester United manager’s eye for more than one season. United tried to sign the player last summer, but refused to pay the hectic £120m price tag Dortmund asked for.

Reports say, Solskajaer also wants additional striker, defensive midfielder and a center back to challenge for title next season. United ended the season in the second place 12 points behind the winners, City. United were in the Europa League final but lost the cup on penalties.

Man United being the most successful English club in modern history, has not brought any silverware to Old Trafford in four years. They haven’t won the league in 8 years. Solskjaer is keen on building a team strong enough to consistently compete for titles. United were eliminated in last season’s UEFA Champions league in the group stage and dropped to second tier Europa league.
