Jadon Sancho to undergo his medical with Man Utd

Tue 13 July 2021 | 14:25

The England international is having his medical with the Red Devils done today and he will sign a contract worth £73m from Borussia Dortmund.

Jadon Sancho

has reached an agreement with

Manchester United

and after putting pen to paper, he will start his holiday. The New Premier League season will begin in about a month later.

The England international was among the three players who did not net on penalties for The Three Lions in the Euro 2020 final against Italy, with the other two being Marcus Rashford and Arsenal's Bukayo Saka.

They were subjected to racial abuse on the internet after England’s defeat.

Borussia Dortmund

demanded £85m for their prized asset at the beginning of the transfer window, but it still was £35m less than the 21-year-old’s value last summer, which was £108m.

Sancho’s contract with the Bundesliga side is due to end in 2023 and Dortmund preferred not to risk losing him as a free agent later. He met the back of the net 50 times in 137 matches for his side.

Dortmund are on the lookout for a replacement and they are eyeing PSV's Donyell Malen and Noni Madueke.

The Red Devils are said to be in need of a central defender more; however, Sancho has proved himself as one of the most exciting young players recently and United’s reason to acquire his services are easily understood.

Harry Maguire, United’s captain, talked about his England team-mate Sancho and referred to him as an exceptional talent".

"

Jadon is a top player, exceptional talent, a young lad with a lot of experience,"

said Maguire ahead of their Euro 2020 semi-final win against Denmark.

"His numbers speak for themselves, what he has done over in Germany. He is a great player. I don't think it is a done deal yet.

"We can't confirm he is a Manchester United player, I know it is close but he is still a Dortmund player as it stands.

"Of course, it is exciting times ahead and hopefully we will get it across the line."
