Sancho emerged as United's No. 1 transfer target last year, but the Old Trafford club could not agree on a fee. He has 20 caps for England since making his debut in 2018.

The 21-year-old scored 16 goals and made 20 assists in 38 games for Dortmund in all competitions in the 2020-21 season. He helped Dortmund qualify for the Champions League with a third-place finish in the Bundesliga.

"The signing is subject to contractual terms and a medical, which will be completed after Jadon's involvement in the UEFA European Championship," Manchester United said in a statement.

Sancho has 20 caps for England since making his debut in 2018, but has barely featured in the team's run to the Euro 2020 quarterfinals, playing only six minutes as a substitute in its 1-0 Group D win over the Czech Republic.

England takes on Ukraine in the last eight on Saturday.

Sancho's addition will strengthen United's right wing as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team look to challenge for the Premier League title after finishing second last season, 12 points behind champion Manchester City.
