Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho has long been linked with a move to Manchester United and it looks like the transfer saga has picked up the pace again.
The sensational Englishman was the club’s main target last year, but sadly the deal fell through to the dismay of fans.
Sancho seems to remain a priority for United, but the club have kept their cool in terms of getting drawn into the same drama.
However, the latest news suggests it’s a transfer that could very well happen if the right circumstances are right.
It is believed that Sancho is still keen on a change and the Red Devils would have even been impressed with how he has conducted himself over the past year.
According to the Mirror and Goal, Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc admitted that the club had a gentleman’s agreement with Sancho that he could leave under certain conditions.

It looks like the conditions are right in place for Manchester United to close Sancho’s signing with relatively little hassle, but time will tell if they can deliver.
Responsibility lies with new backroom staff John Murtough and Darren Fletcher, respectively director of football and technical director.
