Sancho has been a longer-term transfer target for United, but are yet to land his services despite several attempts.

The Red Devils came close to snapping him up last summer but fell short of Dortmund's asking price of £108million.

However, the Bundesliga giants are understood to have since lowered their valuation for the winger, giving United a chance to sign him for £85m.

Metro UK reports the move now feels more or less a formality, with Sancho keen to finish his international assignment with England at the Euros before moving to Old Trafford.

Be that as it may, United fans appear to have run out of patience as they are desperate to see the English playmaker rock a red shirt.

But while the agonising wait rages on, it appears it is only a matter of time - at least if Rashford's recent social media activity is anything to go by.

In a string of posts shortly after England's win over Germany, the forward dropped hints Sancho is inching closer to a move to Man United.

Rashford first responded to a fan's plea to "announce Sancho" by simply saying he could not do it "just yet" before he deleted the response.

However, he dropped an even clearer hint shortly afterward when he replied "yes" to a fan who had also sought to know the status of Sancho's transfer.

Man United inching closer to Sancho deal

Earlier, TUKO.co.ke reported Man United were inching closer to signing long-term transfer target, Jadon Sancho, in the coming days after submitting a fresh bid.

Whereas United were yet to agree on a fee for Sancho, reports suggested their latest bid of around £75m was close to what Dortmund were demanding for the player.

Sancho was initially said to have agreed a five-year contract with United, in a deal that will see him become the club's joint-highest earner on £350k-a-week.
