Jadon Sancho agreement

Jadon Sancho has an agreement with Borussia Dortmund that he can leave if the club receive a suitable offer for his services, according to The Athletic.

A host of clubs are interested in the England international including Manchester United and Chelsea. La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid have also entered the race in recent weeks.

Old Trafford executives Matt Judge and Ed Woodward have advanced their interest, although the latter has publicly warned that the COVID-19 pandemic means mega-money transfers are unlikely.

Premier League rivals Chelsea – the club Sancho grew up supporting – are interested, although Stamford Bridge director Marina Granovskaia has not contacted Dortmund since January.

Liverpool and former club City are also monitoring developments while Barcelona and Real Madrid have been in touch to log their interest.

According to The Athletic, Sancho does not intend to make a decision on his future until the Bundesliga season comes to an end.

Jurgen Klopp holds Timo Werner talks

Jurgen Klopp personally held talks with Timo Werner before professional football was brought to a halt by the coronavirus crisis, according to The Athletic.

The Liverpool manager contacted the RB Leipzig hotshot a fortnight before the team’s Champions League second leg against Atletico Madrid.

Germant international Werner also held talks with Manchester United and Barcelona while his representatives chatted to Chelsea.

But he favours a switch to Anfield because of the coach, team-mates, playing style and environment on offer.

Man Utd confident of completing transfer

Manchester United are confident of completing the signing of Jude Bellingham from Birmingham City, according to 90min.

Old Trafford officials believe the deal is effectively sealed despite competition from Borussia Dortmund for the 16-year-old.

The Red Devils believe Bellingham is the best footballer in his age group on the planet.

United could also sign Bellingham’s younger brother Jobe or negotiate a first-refusal option for the 15-year-old.
