According to reports, former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has given his approval for the club to sign Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho this summer. The Red Devils have been trying to sign the England international star for the last two years but they have not been able to reach an agreement with the German club for his signing and it has raised questions about whether they are truly serious about completing the transfer.

United’s current manager Olé Gunnar Solksjær has made it clear that Sancho is his priority signing and would love the club’s board to complete the deal as soon as possible. Dortmund have also accelerated their attempts to make sure that the deal goes ahead after they particularly reduced their asking price from the £120 million they were demanding two summer transfer windows ago to the £95 million they are demanding currently.

Although Manchester United have remained slow in negotiations, they are now closer than they have ever been in getting the deal done. As long as they can agree to the fee that Dortmund are demanding, as well as the structure of how the payments will be made, then the Jadon Sancho transfer to Manchester United will finally happen as they have already agreed personal terms with the player toll 2026, according to football transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

This transfer is one that almost all Manchester United fans have been waiting for and when it finally happens, there is expected to be a spark of excitement among the Old Trafford faithful. I’m his recent assessment of Sancho, Sir Alex said that the player is very quick with the ball and could be a very important weapon for counter-attacks. He added that Sancho does not only score goals, but he also assists as well and United need that sort of player.
