Jadon Sancho to Manchester United is a transfer saga that remains ongoing. By the end of the week, however, the prospect of the 20-year-old moving to Old Trafford should become a whole lot clearer. Express Sport will now take a look at the latest news and gossip about a potential deal.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly told Jadon Sancho that he expects the transfer to be completed, as we head into the final week of the transfer window.
That’s according to Norwegian outlet Dagbladet, who reaffirm the belief the Red Devils will bid for the England international this week.
Solskjaer has told Sancho he expects things to go ‘smoothly’ and that the 20-year-old will become their player before the transfer deadline.
Sancho has reportedly agreed a five-year contract at Old Trafford.
And personal terms aren’t expected to be a problem, with the England international keen to make the move.
Premier League done deals: Every confirmed transfer in the summer window so far
Fans on social media think Matt Judge flew out to Germany over the weekend to negotiate a deal for Sancho.
A United supporter has tweeted pictures of two flights and claims that the same plane in the images was used by Judge to conclude a deal for Donny van de Beek, who arrived from Ajax earlier in the summer.
“This is the same plane that Judge took to Amsterdam to finish off the VDB deal,” @ORohitO said.
“It was used to head to Dortmund and back to Biggin Hill (London over the weekend).”
He then did a second tweet, saying: “I can only share what I see or know. This is what I see. Conclude from here what you may and don’t shoot the messenger.”

United could sell seven players to raise funds for Sancho, according to the Evening Standard.
Andreas Pereira may depart, with Serie A giants Lazio eager to bring the Brazil international to Serie A before the deadline.
And Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Diogo Dalot, Sergio Romero, Marcos Rojo and Jesse Lingard could also be shown the door.
United have struggled to get players off their books so far this summer.
But they were able to offload Alexis Sanchez earlier in the window with the Chile international moving to Inter Milan on a permanent basis.

Andy Cole has backed United for being reluctant to pay ‘crazy money’ to secure Sancho’s signature.
Asked whether United should meet Dortmund’s valuation of Sancho, the treble winner told the PA Agency : “That is big money, crazy money.
“You don’t know when punters are going to be allowed back into the stadiums. Every club must be losing absolute fortunes.
“When you look at a team like Real Madrid spending no money, what does that tell you? They’ve done no business, so you know something is wrong with football.
“Looking at it from outside, I think Man United are saying ‘we are not going to spend money willy-nilly. If the right individual comes in at the right price, yeah, we’ll do it’. But £109m, in this current climate?”
