Sept. 16, 2020
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly believes that Jadon Sancho’s move to Manchester United is imminent.
The Red Devils have been linked with a big-money switch for Sancho all summer, however, Borussia Dortmund are reluctant to let him go at present.
Dortmund have made it clear that they will not be letting him leave this summer, however, United are confident they can get a deal over the line.
A report in Norwegian outlet Dagbladet reports that Solskjaer has recently had a conversation with the 20-year-old England international.
The report goes onto say that the United boss believes the transfer will ‘soon be in the bag’.
Sancho is understood to be keen on a return to Manchester, having left Pep Guardiola’s men for Dortmund in the summer of 2017.

However, Dagbladet also claims that Solskjaer is hoping to make one other signing before the October 5 deadline.
United have already made one marquee acquisition following the addition of Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek.
They’ve previously been linked with the likes of Kalidou Koulibaly and Dayot Upamecano, who would most likely partner Harry Maguire at centre-back.
