Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho is on the verge of finalising his personal terms with Manchester United.
United are edging closer to landing the England winger in a deal that is set to reach £108million.
And while the clubs remain locked in talks over what would be a stunning club and English record transfer, Sancho’s wages and the terms of what is expected to be an initial five-year deal are almost agreed.
The two clubs have been in advanced discussions for some time over the deal that will see Sancho, 20, return to Manchester, having left Manchester City for Germany in 2017.

Those discussions are continuing and centre on the structure of the deal with Dortmund sticking to their £108m asking price.
Dortmund want at least half of that up front and negotiations will continue this week about how the total package is made up though all parties are optimistic an agreement will be reached.
Sancho’s current Dortmund deal, due to run until 2022, is worth in the region of £190,000-per week and he can expect a considerable pay hike in line with his expected transfer fee and status as one of the most exciting players in world football.
A fee of £108m fee would see him become the most expensive player in bought by an English club, topping the £89m United paid to sign Paul Pogba from Juventus in 2016.
That price tag would also beat Gareth Bale’s £86m move from Tottenham to Real Madrid in 2013, meaning Sancho would also become the most expensive ever British player.
