Man Utd news: Terms agreed with Jadon Sancho, duo left out of Europa League squad and more


The 20-year-old England international, who is valued at €120m by Borussia Dortmund, scored 17 goals and provided 17 assists in the Bundesliga last season.

Manchester United and Jadon Sancho have agreed terms on a five-year contract that would see the 20-year-old winger earning £340,000-a-week in salary, reports BILD.

The Borussia Dortmund forward is on the cusp of completing a return move to Manchester only three years after he left United’s fierce rivals Manchester City to join BVB in an £8m move.

Dortmund value the Englishman at close to €120m and have so far refused to budge on their valuation of the player who scored 17 goals and provided 17 assists in Bundesliga last season.

United have reportedly agreed to meet the German club’s valuation but both the clubs are yet to reach an agreement over the initial fee. The Red Devils are reportedly adamant of paying £63m up front whereas Dortmund are hoping to receive half of their valuation of Sancho in advance.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are favorites to go through from their Wednesday’s clash with LASK after they dismantled the Austrian outfit 5-0 in the first leg in March.

Manchester United have decided against naming Luke Shaw and Axel Tuanzebe in the club’s 30-man squad for the remainder of their Europa League campaign.

Both the defenders have been left out of the Red Devils’ Europa League squad due to the season-ending injuries they succumbed to in recent months.

Shaw was taken off after he injured his ankle during United’s 1-1 draw with Southampton earlier in July while Tuanzebe failed to play a single minute since the restart after picking up a knock before football resumed in June.

The absence of the duo has allowed Solskjaer to experiment with youth as youngsters Teden Mengi and Ethan Laird have both been included in the squad.

Top News 3: AS Roma decide against extending Chris Smalling’s loan stay at the club

The 30-year-old England international enjoyed a highly successful season in Italy since moving to the country on a season-long loan before the start of the 2019/20 campaign.

Manchester United loanee Chris Smalling is returning to the club after AS Roma decided against extending the defender’s temporary stay in The Eternal City.

Manchester Evening News reports that Smalling, who has expected expectations during his time in Italy, is still wanted by Roma who want to sign him on a permanent basis before the start of the 2020/21 Serie A campaign.

However, given the fact that the terms of his original loan deal were extended only to cover the end of the Italian top flight that ended last weekend, Smalling was never going to take part in the Italian club’s Europa League campaign resuming later this week.

The Italian outfit paid an initial £2.7m to sign Smalling on loan last season and the 30-year-old has been a regular starter for the Giallorossi, starting 29 Italian top-flight games and another seven Europa League fixtures for the side.
