In a big news coming from the European football transfer window, Premier League giants Manchester United have agreed to sign winger Jadon Sancho from Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund. It is being reported that the parties involved have agreed to a fee of around 73 million pounds (US$101 million).

Earlier, the 21-year-old was looked at as the Red Devils' number one transfer target last year, with the British publications also suggesting that United had bid around 100 million euros (US$118.5 million) then, yet the deal did not materialise.

In a report carried by Sky Sports, it was confirmed that the personal terms between Sancho and United had been agreed with the youngster set to join them after England’s Euro 2020 campaign, subject to him passing a mandatory medical examination.

Having said that, Sancho hasn’t had much to do in England’s Euro 2020 campaign this year as he spent just six minutes on the field, coming in as a substitute in their 1-0 Group D win over Czech Republic.

Meanwhile, the three Lions have sealed a place in the quarterfinals of the ongoing European Championship on Tuesday, courtesy two late goals from Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane.

"The players were absolutely immense, right the way through the team and the fans were as well. Only 40,000, but it's as good an atmosphere as I can remember at Wembley," Southgate said after the match.

"We played extremely well. I think we deserved the win, but I've had to say to them (the players) straight away, look, 'I'm the party-pooper because if we don't capitalise on that on Saturday now, then it doesn't count for anything'," he concluded.
