Borussia Dortmund have confirmed they have reached an agreement with Manchester United over the transfer of Jadon Sancho.

Sancho has long been targeted by Manchester United, while Chelsea have had eyes on Erling Haaland. The two young players have formed a stunning partnership at Borussia Dortmund over the past 18 months, and Erling Haaland’s father Alf-Inge Haaland has responded sadly to the news of Sancho’s exit, as the duo won’t be playing together anymore.

Following news of Sancho’s exit, Haaland’s dad said on social media: “F*ck. But all the best Sancho. You will be missed.”

Haaland had a phenomenal season as he ended the campaign with 41 goals across all competitions, while Sancho found the target on 16 occasions and had 18 assists.

Meanwhile, reports now claim that Haaland is edging closer to sealing a move to Chelsea this summer.

According to the Daily Mail, Haaland expects to join Chelsea this summer.

“Haaland is coming from Borussia Dortmund and expects to be joining Chelsea before the new season begins,” states the report.
