It looks like Jadon Sancho could be on his way to Manchester United, with the Premier League side reportedly in advanced talks with Borussia Dortmund.

According to the reliable Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United are in advanced negotiations with Borussia Dortmund over the signature of Jadon Sancho for an initial transfer fee of 100 million euros, a fee that would be a Premier League transfer record. While no fee has been agreed yet, talks are ongoing. The BVB bosses are keen to get Sancho’s future sorted soon one way or another.

The England international wants to return to the Premier League, and is open to joining Manchester United. If the two clubs agree to a deal, Sancho will sign a five year deal with the Red Devils.

The report adds that Borussia Dortmund could accept a deal that would involve United paying the initial 100 million euros in instalments, with a further 20 million euros coming from performance related add-ons.

Coming on the back of an exceptional season which saw him score 20 goals and provide 20 assists in all competitions, Sancho returned to training with his Borussia Dortmund teammates earlier today. Although it remains to be seen if he will travel to the Bad Ragaz training camp next Monday.

Romano adds that if Sancho does leave this summer, the Black and Yellows have Memphis Depay on their wishlist as a potential replacement. But he is not the only player they are interested in. Ruhr Nachrichten reported last month that Borussia Dortmund could look to sign two players to replace Sancho this summer.
