Manchester United are said to be 'closing in' on the signing of Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho, with boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still keen to strengthen his attack.


Sancho, who managed 20 goals and 20 assists in all competitions this season, has been linked with United for some time now. The Red Devils are on the lookout for attacking reinforcements, and have made the 20-year-old a priority signing for the upcoming summer transfer window.


90min first learned back in September of 2019 that United were confident of bringing in Sancho this summer and despite the coronavirus pandemic, they still remain adamant they will be able to make a deal happen. However, considering the financial impact of the coronavirus, the Premier League outfit will no longer be looking to go above £100m in order to land the England international.


The Sun now report that United are 'close to an agreement' with Borussia Dortmund regarding the sale of Sancho for around £100m, with the player still keen on making the move to Old Trafford.


With Solskjaer looking to build a team capable of challenging for trophies and league titles, he is keen on strengthening his attacking line. Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood have all been in scintillating form since the resumption of play, but the United boss is looking to land Sancho as he seeks to build a squad 'to match that of his own glory filled playing days'.

Furthermore, it is noted that Solskjaer is eyeing an 'all-English' attack with Sancho, Rashford and Greenwood. However, one Englishman who could be on his way out of the club is Jesse Lingard, with Milan and Inter both interested in his services.


As is the case with any big-money transfer deals, Sancho's potential move to Old Trafford will likely drag on for some time as the two clubs look to strike an agreement. However, the latest update suggests the Red Devils are to close to meeting Dortmund's valuation. It has previously been noted that Man Utd are even prepared to lean on a recently withdrawn loan to help make the deal happen.
