Manchester United have reportedly reached an agreement in principle with Borussia Dortmund for Jadon Sancho, their prolific winger.
The 21-year old English forward is expected to sign a five-year contract with the option of a sixth for £73 million ($101m). According to reports, the quick winger will finalize the terms of his contract and complete his medical after the Euro 2020 competition.

The Red Devils’ rivals, Manchester City, will gain from the deal as he joined Dortmund from the Etihad four years ago. They will receive 15% of the profit from the sale.
