Man Utd agree personal terms for Jadon Sancho
Is Sancho to United finally happening?
In what feels like the longest transfer saga since Wesley Sneijder, Gaitan, or any of the other players who were perpetually linked with a move to Old Trafford, it would seem that Manchester United have finally agreed personal terms with Jadon Sancho.
The news comes from transfer news insider, Fabrizio Romano, who stated that Sancho is "not creating any problem" and the deal is now in Borussia Dortmund's hands.

The 21-year-old has been linked with a move back to Manchester (having previously been part of City's academy) virtually ever since his first season at the German club.
After having previously provided an update a few days ago, Romano tweeted that the club have now "reached an agreement with Sancho's camp", stating that negotiations with Dortmund are still to take place.

We reported last month how United have reportedly lined up four targets they would like to secure early this summer - Sancho being top of that list - and it seems as though they might be about to wrap up their first.
It is likely that nothing concrete will be announced or even done while Sancho and his potential future teammates in Rashford, Maguire, Shaw and Henderson are away with England for Euro 2020, but it will certainly make for added excitement as Reds look to see how the young star could link-up with these other talents next season.
This is a huge step forward in negotiations but don't be fooled, it could still go wrong - remember how they approached the deal last time? Safe to say we'll believe it when we see it.
