In what comes as major exciting news for Manchester United fans, English winger Jadon Sancho is all set to join the club for the upcoming season on a permanent deal from Borussia Dortmund. He will reportedly cost around £73 million, as both the clubs have supposedly agreed on a deal.

According to a report by The Guardian, Sancho's deal would also include a £5 million add-on but has been cited as somewhat tricky for the club. Both sides are yet to officially announce the same, as his joining is subject to medical clearance, which is likely to occur after the ongoing UEFA Euro.

The deal would end Sancho's transfer saga that has been going on since the last season. While United tried to sign him last season, Dortmund was adamant at the then asking price of more than £90 million.

Sancho is reportedly set to sign a five-year deal and earn around £350,000 per week. While he would become one of the top signings at the club in the upcoming season, club manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær is adamant about bolstering his side's chances of winning the English Premier League.

Sancho has so far 50 goals in 137 appearances for Dortmund. Although he has not won the Bundesliga yet, he did win a couple of domestic titles. In the meantime, he would be looking to aid England to win the Euro title for the first time, while the side takes on Ukraine in the quarterfinal on Saturday.

Besides, United is also determined on landing French defender Raphaël Varane from Real Madrid. As per the latest report by El Chiringuito TV journalist Pipi Estrada, United has already agreed to a £45 million deal for the Frenchman and the transfer is expected to happen soon.
