An insight into when exactly Jadon Sancho’s move to Manchester United is expected to be made official has, on Monday, been forthcoming online.
Sancho a red
The news which Red Devils fans across the globe were waiting for was of course finally forthcoming a fortnight ago.
On the back of weeks, months and even years of negotiations, a deal between the transfer chiefs at Old Trafford, and their counterparts at Borussia Dortmund, was at last struck for Jadon Sancho.
This comes after the former finally agreed to pay up, with a fee of around £73 million understood to have been agreed upon between the two clubs.
The English international, in turn, was tipped to make the move to the Theatre of Dreams upon the completion of the nation’s Euro 2020 campaign.

The Three Lions’ European endeavours of course came to a close in heartbreaking fashion a little over 24 hours ago, with Sancho one of those to have seen a spot-kick saved en route to a penalty shootout defeat at the hands of Italy.
Returning to the 21-year-old’s future, though, what exactly does his return from international duty mean for Sancho’s Old Trafford switch?
Well, as outlined above, on Monday, an insight into precisely that has been forthcoming.
The info comes courtesy of journalist Tom McDermott, regarded as reliable when it comes to all things Manchester United.
And, according to the FWA contributor, Sancho’s arrival on the red half of Manchester should be formalised by the end of the week. This comes with the attacker yet to undertake a medical and officially pen his long-term contract with the Red Devils.
