Man Utd could finalise £86m Sancho move ‘next week’, Navas being tracked


Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund announced yesterday a deal has been agreed to take Jadon Sancho to Old Trafford after Euro 2020.

United will pay the Germans £73million for the England winger who will join when he is released from Three Lions duty.

Sancho is to become United’s second-highest earner.

He will pen a five-year deal at Old Trafford worth £91million – or £350,000 per week.

That will see his wages more than treble from the £100,000-per-week deal he is on at Dortmund.

And it will also see him among the very best-paid players in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad.

Elsewhere, United want to sign Dominic Calvert-Lewin this summer.

The Red Devils are on the hunt for a new striker as a long-term No9 replacement for Romelu Lukaku.

And they have identified the Everton front man as the ideal candidate.

Calvert-Lewin, 24, enjoyed the best season of his career in 2020-21 with 21 goals in 39 appearances to be the Toffees’ crowned player of the year.

And finally, United are reportedly closing in on a deal for Real Madrid star Raphael Varane.

ESPN claim the Red Devils have received encouragement over a transfer for the France World Cup winner following a deal for Jadon Sancho.

The report adds that Varane is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s top defensive target and Madrid are prepared to negotiate a realistic fee for the 28-year-old.

United are already said to have held ‘some discussions’ for the centre-back – whose contract at the Bernabeu is due to expire in June 2022.

And the club’s efforts to sign Varane have stepped up following France’s surprise round-of-16 exit at Euro 2020 against Switzerland.

United are allegedly confident that a deal can be done for around £43m – a sharp decrease from Madrid’s initial £60m valuation.
