Jadon Sancho to Manchester United transfer believed to be very close

The fee is believed to be in the region of €120m

Jadon Sancho is on the verge of completing his move to Manchester United, according to reports in Germany.

United's interest in the Borussia Dortmund winger has been the worst kept secret in football this year, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to bolster his attacking options.

Sancho, 20, has been hugely impressive for Dortmund since joining them from Manchester City as a teenager in search of first team football, and has now earned himself a move back to the Premier League for what will be a club record fee for Man United.

The transfer is understood to be structured in several instalments, with German paper Bild reporting that United want to pay €70m up front, before paying another €30m next year and a further €20m in 2022.

Dortmund are believed to be on board with that payment structure, but have reportedly insisted United act on this before August 10th.

With Sancho likely to arrive at Old Trafford, academy graduate Jesse Lingard is expected to depart the club. Lingard has struggled with form this season, related to off the field issues, but has enjoyed some great moments at the club and should get the chance to put himself in the shop window in their upcoming Europa League fixtures. Both Newcastle United and Borussia Monchengladbach have reportedly shown interest.
