Manchester United are close to signing Borussia Dortmund winger, Jadon Sancho, this summer.
This claim was made by respected football expert, Dean Jones.
According to Jones, Man United is very “confident” that Sancho, 21, is arriving sooner rather than later with a deal set at around £80 million maximum.
“The [Jadon] Sancho vibe is still good from [Manchester] United’s angle,” Jones told The Football Terrace Podcast.

“It is hard to get a proper grasp of where we are at in terms of a fee. But I am still told £80 million is really the ceiling for United, they are very keen not to be seen to be going over that.
“And however this settles, they would like it to be reported as an £80 million transfer and no more than that.
“That is what I have been told and that is what the club has been saying for some time now.”
“I was speaking to someone [from Manchester United] yesterday who said the next storyline would be, does he get the No.7 shirt? People are getting so confident and there’s more of a willingness on both sides to get it done now.”
