Man Utd close in on £110million Jadon Sancho transfer with five-year deal worth £220,000 a week

MANCHESTER UNITED are close to landing Jadon Sancho in a record £110million deal.

But United will not be bullied into meeting next Monday’s deadline set by Borussia Dortmund to sign the English superstar, 20.

England frontman Jadon Sancho is finally on the brink of sealing a mega-money switch to Man Utd from Borussia Dortmund

Old Trafford boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made Jadon Sancho his priority target in the summer transfer window

There has been a breakthrough in negotiations as the Red Devils have forced the Germans into accepting staggered payments, with £70m up front.

There was no way United were going to pay the initial demand of £110m in one go for someone so young.

The fee will rise to that British-record figure based on Sancho’s achievements and appearances.

And the main part of the add-ons mean United need to win the Prem and Champions League.

Sancho will sign a four-year, £220,000-a-week deal, with the option on the club’s side of extending it by a further year.

The winger — who will wear United’s iconic No 7 shirt — returns to Manchester three years after leaving the Etihad.

Dortmund paid Manchester City just £10m for him in August 2017.

The No 7 shirt was last worn by flop Alexis  Sanchez, who United are desperate to offload to Inter Milan for a cut-price £10m.

Former Arsenal forward Sanchez, 31, has been on a season-long loan at the Serie A side.

United have been paying two-thirds of his whopping £505,000-a-week salary while he has been in Italy.
