Manchester United may transfer their Bundesliga target, Jadon Sancho, at long last.
The Red Devils’ long-term target has finally, reportedly, agreed to switch allegiances.
He will now likely move to Old Trafford after a sensational stint at Borussia Dortmund.
Sancho has emerged as one of Europe’s deadliest and most definite attackers despite only being 21 years of age. Though perhaps not one of the 5 best Bundesliga players this season, he’s brought a new level of excellency to the German league.
The Manchester United target has netted 16 goals and assisted 20 more this season.
In this Bundesliga campaign, like in the ones before, Sancho has demonstrated his goal-scoring as well as creative abilities.
Indeed, he finished the 2020/21 Bundesliga season after just winning the DFB-Pokal title with Dortmund.
In the breath-taking finale that Dortmund played versus RB Leipzig for this title, Sancho scored twice, that is, a brace.
Finally – Manchester United May Transfer Their Bundesliga Target
Despite constant efforts, and immense pressure from the Manchester United board, United couldn’t carry Sancho’s transfer to fruition last summer.
Per Dortmund, the winger was worth about €100 million last season, around October 2020. And this price tag that proved to be one of the many complexities in the deal.
Nonetheless, amongst the various European superstars who have been mooted with transfers to the Premier League this past season, Sancho was and still remains one of Manchester United’s priority targets.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s right-wing includes a developing Daniel James, who isn’t the friendliest with goals, and an aging Juan Mata.
That leaves Mason Greenwood as the only player who can Solskjaer can completely trust to hold down that flank.
So, Manchester United are desperate for a midfielder like Sancho, who, though young himself, can add definition to their right-wing.
And now, per Sportsmole, they may have him in the bag already.
Sportmole, or rather German outlet Sport1, claim that Sancho has already agreed personal terms.
Following failed negotiations last year, Sancho’s concession means the Red Devils are now free to negotiate a fee with Dortmund.
However, one catch is that the Glazer family are allegedly not going to spend big on United transfers this summer.
So, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may have had to promise the powers-that-be that Sancho’s arrival would bring major honours to United.
