South Londoner Jadon Sancho has reportedly had his medical as his £73million move to Manchester United from Borussia Dortmund edges closer.
Sancho has scored 38 goals in 104 appearances for Dortmund since signing for them in 2017.
United agreed a fee for the Camberwell-born winger on July 1 but the deal could not be completed until after Euro 2020.
The BBC are reporting that Manchester United are expected to formally announce Sancho’s arrival later this week.
They add that the England winger was driven to United’s Carrington training complex on Tuesday and was later pictured leaving.
Sancho has scored three goals in 22 appearances for England, since he made his debut in 2018.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side failed in their pursuit of the 21-year-old last summer after they could not agree a fee with the Bundesliga outfit.
