Keep up to date with the latest Man United transfer rumours and breaking news throughout the day.


Manchester United have agreed a £72.9million deal to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.

The Manchester Evening News understands United have agreed to pay £72.9m (€85m) up front with no add-ons, despite Dortmund's attempts to negotiate a higher fee overall.

The MEN reported earlier this month Sancho, 21, had agreed personal terms with United and the club has reached a breakthrough with his transfer fee.

Sancho's salary was a stumbling block during negotiations last year but United resolved his personal terms swiftly in order to settle on a fee with Dortmund.

Elsewhere, Juan Mata would like to stay at United, though his contract expired at midnight.

United have the option to keep Mata, 33, for an additional year and the club clarified on June 4 they were still in discussions to extend his deal.

Manchester United have agreed a £72.9million deal to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.

The Manchester Evening News understands United have agreed to pay £72.9m (€85m) up front with no add-ons, despite Dortmund's attempts to negotiate a higher fee overall.

United 'were priced out' of summer move for Kingsley Coman with asking price higher than Jadon Sancho's

Don't think anyone will care about this now that Jadon Sancho is coming.

However, Bild suggest Kingsley Coman could have moved to United this summer had Bayern not priced him out of a move.

They suggest the German giants wanted €90million for the French winger this summer - more than Sancho will cost United.

Sancho deletes Man City tweet after United transfer fee agreed

Jadon Sancho moved quickly to delete a controversial tweet from his Manchester City youth team days after a deal was agreed to see him join Manchester United.

The 21-year-old winger has been chased by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the Red Devils for the best part of two summers and a deal has been finally agreed for £72.9million with Borussia Dortmund.

Fans were delighted with the news, but it quickly got rival fans searching through his catalogue of tweets from his City days. One in particular was surfaced quickly and started doing the rounds again, before Sancho was able to delete it without mention.

United sent warning after agreeing Jadon Sancho transfer fee

Manchester United will still have the same problems next season even with Jadon Sancho in the team.

That's according to Liverpool legend John Barnes who has warned that, while Sancho would be an excellent signing, he doesn't solve United's more pressing problems in defence.

"They’ll still be inconsistent," Barnes told bettingexpert.com.

"Manchester United’s problem hasn’t been their attacking play and scoring goals: they’ve got Cavani, Greenwood, Martial, Rashford, Fernandes and Pogba, they’re all good attackers.

"Sancho will add to that, but their problem is that they’ve not been consistent enough and they’ve conceded goals and lost matches because they’re not strong enough defensively.

"It’ll be a good signing for them - a young English player which is what you want in the squad. But I don’t think it will make them challengers. They’ll be in the top four but they’re not consistent enough and they haven’t got the right balance between attack and defence to compete with Manchester City or Liverpool.

"You have to take signings when you can get them. As much as you can say, ‘let’s not buy Sancho and get a centre-back’, if you don’t sign a centre-back you’ve missed the chance to get a really good player.

"They will be looking at that situation. Lindelof has done okay but Harry Maguire with a solid centre-back alongside him would make Manchester United much more consistent and more solid."

Jadon Sancho 'to be handed' No.7 shirt

With a fee agreed we can focus on the lighter bits of news regarding Jadon Sancho.

The Metro are already speculating on a possible squad number with the No.7 shirt touted.

Manchester United might be seeing their next world-class partnership at Euro 2020

Manchester is a city united for England. With the blues on the right and the reds on the left of defence, England have not conceded in their last two matches at the European Championship and are keeping enough clean sheets to open a laundrette.

Jordan Pickford has embraced equanimity and is an immeasurably improved goalkeeper. Timo Werner never looked capable of breaching him in that one-on-one, although Pickford can take little credit for Thomas Muller's audition to appear in a German Pizza Hut commercial.
