Jadon Sancho has agreed to £250,000-a-week terms at Manchester United after the club offered "£90m plus £18m add-ons” to Borussia Dortmund in August.
The Red Devils appear to have broken through in talks for the 20-year-old, agreeing agent fees and personal terms for the youngster on Wednesday evening.
With 20 goals and 20 assists for the German side last season, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has prioritised the forward this summer.
And the Guardian has revealed how much the forward has agreed to accept at Old Trafford each week.
Sancho is expected to earn £250,000-a-week by signing on at United while the agent fees have also been discussed.
But the stumbling block still in Solskjaer’s way is the £108m evaluation, which Dortmund have remained stubborn on throughout negotiations.
The Premier League giants, though, offered £90m for the 20-year-old plus £18m in performance-based add-ons last month in a bid to meet the German side’s valuation.
These payments would be made in instalments over the “next two to three seasons” by Solskjaer’s side.
Sancho has impressed throughout his time at the Westfalenstadion, having moved from United’s rivals Manchester City in 2017.
Scoring 34 goals in 99 senior appearances, it has seen the forward also secure a place in Gareth Southgate’s England side.
But United have been warned they cannot rush into negotiations due to Dortmund’s other business.
Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth has said: “There is plenty of work to do before we get to that stage, and Manchester United need to be careful as well because they cannot leave this too late.

“The one thing Dortmund will want to do is to bring in a replacement.
“They will either want Sancho in their squad for next season or a replacement. One of those things must happen after the transfer window has closed.”
United fans were left in meltdown yesterday as coach Mike Phelan followed Sancho on Instagram, sparking a transfer theory among supporters.
