Manchester United fans can now heave a sigh of heavy relief after Borrusia Dortmund confirmed that both clubs have agreed on a deal for England winger Jadon Sancho.

The Red Devils were closed to securing the forward's services last summer, but the move collapsed on deadline transfer day.

Although the financial crisis caused by the deadly coronavirus pandemic played a part in the breakdown last year, that is now behind as the German club is ready to accept the £73 million offer from United.
