Manchester United have reached an agreement to sign England winger Jadon Sancho from German side Borussia Dortmund, the Premier League club announced on Thursday.

“The signing is subject to contractual terms and a medical, which will be completed after Jadon’s involvement in the UEFA European Championship,” the statement from Manchester United said.

The transfer will be for a fee of around 73 million pounds (US$101 million), Sky Sports reported on Wednesday.

The 21-year-old had emerged as United’s number one transfer target last year, with British media reporting that the Premier League side had bid around 100 million euros (US$118.5 million) then, but the deal did not go through.

Sky Sports reported that personal terms between Sancho and the Premier League giants had been agreed, with the player set to join them after England’s European Championship campaign, subject to passing a medical.

Sancho has hardly featured in England’s run to the Euro 2020 quarter-finals, playing only six minutes as a substitute in their 1-0 Group D win over Czech Republic. Gareth Southgate’s side take on Ukraine in the last eight on Saturday.
