After months of speculation, Jadon Sancho appears to be on the cusp of joining Manchester United.

The Red Devils have agreed to a deal to sign the 21-year-old English winger from Borussia Dortmund for €85 million (US$100.715 million), according to The Athletic's David Ornstein.

Sancho will now finalize personal terms with Man United, as per Ornstein, and is expected to sign a contract that will run through 2026.

Currently part of the England squad at Euro 2020, Sancho is coming off his third domestic campaign for Dortmund having scored 16 goals in 38 appearances across all competitions, including eight goals and 11 assists in the Bundesliga. Sancho's best Bundesliga season came in 2019-20 when he recorded 17 goals and 16 assists.

Before joining Dortmund in August 2017, Sancho spent his youth career with Manchester City (2015-17) and Watford (2007-15), where he signed at the age of seven.
