Manchester United have reportedly agreed an initial £60million fee for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho. The 20-year-old s keen to return to the Premier League, three years after he left Manchester City in pursuit of regular football.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made the England international his top priority and a deal is now closer than ever. Young striker Mason Greenwood had been tasked with plugging the void on the right side of United’s attack.
According to The Independent Ed Woodward is on the verge of securing his first marquee transfer of the window. The United chief will then apparently turn his attention to finding a new striker and midfielder. It is thought Aston Villa skipper Jack Grealish tops the Red Devils’ wishlist in the middle of the park. Tottenham’s Harry Kane has also been linked with a move to Old Trafford.
If there is any of the budget remaining then the Independent claim the search will begin for a new centre-back. Solskjaer longs for a permanent partner for Harry Maguire but that is not deemed a necessity. Player sales could lead to an increased budget which would then allow United to bring in another defender.
Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly is regularly linked with a move to United, as is RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano.
