Many Manchester United fans have reacted to a claim from a journalist that personal terms and agent fees have been agreed with Jadon Sancho.
Borussia Dortmund winger Sancho’s form over the last 12 months has seen the Englishman become one of the most in-form and wanted attackers in European football.
With the transfer window coming to a close on Monday evening, Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano had shed some light on whether or not United could pull of a move for the £105.3m valued winger, seemingly claiming a deal was not out of the question.
Now, Sam Pilger, who writes for FourFourTwo and The Athletic, has claimed in a tweet that the England starlet is ready to make the move, merely waiting on the clubs to agree a fee.
Jadon Sancho to #MUFC: Personal terms agreed, agent fees agreed. Now all comes down to whether United can make an offer that satisfies Dortmund in the next 48 hours. They are trying.

A potential alternative to Sancho has emerged in the name of Ousmane Dembele, who has somewhat been frozen out at La Liga side Barcelona.
A potential move for the French winger was rubbished on Friday, however, with Barca claiming no contact has been made by United.
Here are just some of the reaction from United fans over Sam Pilger’s tweet on Sancho…
They are ‘trying’ my patience…

They certainly are trying the world will come to an end for a lot of fans if we don’t buy him and I would love him, but 100m plus, not sure he is worth it despite he has his whole career in front of him, doesn’t stand out like a Rooney Ronaldo Scholes etc at their age.

Surely with Smalling, Dalot, Pereira albeit a few on loan and potential more outings or Rojo, Jones, James and potentially Lingard we could up our bid and get him in? Just seems odd.

We knew this a month ago. Nothing has and will change. Dortmund is taking a risk by not letting him go for the amount we offered because come end of next season they will not get the same offer. His price will decrease and he will end up at our rival which is just depressing.

Solskjaer ‘mis-spoke’ at the start of Summer. He is finding out the hard way that the team manager at Man United is not in charge of transfers. He may suggest which players he would like, but Woodward and the accountants decide who should be bought and for how much. @ManUnited

Trying? It’s pay up or forget.
