Manchester United have agreed a deal with Borussia Dortmund for the transfer of Jadon Sancho.

Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has issued his famous ‘here we go!’ tweet to confirm that the agreement has been reached for a fee of €90 million, ‘with add-ons’.

After a transfer saga that has run over a year, Romano finally tweeted the immortal words this evening:

Jadon Sancho to Manchester United… HERE WE GO!

‘Done deal confirmed. Agreement reached between Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund.

‘€90m with add ons. Agents fee and personal terms agreed, contract until 2026.

‘Medicals pending – then it’ll be official.’

The Telegraph’s James Ducker also confirmed the deal, but reported a different price.

‘Indications are Sancho fee is £72.9m with no add ons on top of that. He’ll have a medical with #mufc after the Euros.’

And The Athletic’s David Ornstein has also confirmed the deal, agreeing the price with Ducker:

‘Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund have total agreement for the transfer of Jadon Sancho to Old Trafford in an €85m deal.

’21yo winger has green light to finalise personal terms and undergo a medical before completing move.’

And finally, elite German football journalist Patrick Berger has also confirmed the deal, with another variation on the sum agreed. He also reports that Sancho will be given the number seven shirt at United:

‘Agreement reached between Borussia Dortmund and Manchester United. #MUFC pay €85m as guaranteed sum.

‘€10m add ons. Contract til 2026. @Sanchooo10 will wear the No. 7 @ManUtd. Congrats to all Utd fans. Brilliant player!’

In his Guardian column, Romano explains the differing values being reported and also says that the decision on the number seven shirt has not yet been made:

‘An initial transfer fee of £73m was agreed’, he reports.

‘The deal includes £5m in add-ons but they have been described as quite difficult to reach.

‘The player has asked to wear No 7 at United but no decision has been taken on that yet.’
