Man United Finally completed the marking of their long term target, Jadon Sancho but could lose out Edinson Cavani
Jadon Sancho is set to field for the Red Devils come the new season after agreeing to a 5-year deal with his former rivals.
Having finally managed to convince Sancho into pulling for a deal, Dortmund confirmed the deal wasn’t cause they are happy over the money but cause Sancho wanted to leave.
“There’s an agreement with Manchester United for Sancho. It was Jadon’s express wish to change, we would have loved to keep him. We are not happy about the money but sad that he’s leaving,” Dortmund’s CEO, Watzke said.

The nature of Sancho’s deal make it more likely he is considered as a golden boy and as such would see his demands granted.
The number 7 jersey is considered iconic for the Manchester based club after it was popularized by former United legend; George Best in the 1960s.
Other names to have worn this same number includes, Eric Cantona, Bryan Robson, David Beckham and Cristian Ronaldo who is also linked to a move back to the club.
The current number 7, Cavani has on the other hand been an impressive one for the club, netting 17 goals in 39 appearances since joining from Paris Saint German.
Also the 34-year-old recently penned an extension with the club but could now push for an exit with AS Roma in line should he be stripped of the number 7 jersey.
The number 7 has been a jersey he preferred mostly but failed to have this wish granted during his spell at Paris Saint German.
But through out his years in Palermo and SSC Napoli, Cavani wore the number 7 jersey.
Although another number he could switch is the number 9 which he wore at Paris Saint German but there is Anthony Martial who just recovered from injury and is hoping to return to superb action soon.
