Sancho to join Man Utd on top 5 Premier League wages

Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho will join Manchester United as one of the Premier League's highest paid players should he eventually sign.

United and Dortmund remain at loggerheads over a fee for Sancho with the German giants rejecting a £67million bid on Thursday, as they demand £80m to part ways with their No 7.

Despite this setback, the Old Trafford outfit have agreed personal terms with Sancho. The Guardian says the 21-year-old is set to be handed a five-year deal worth around £350,000-a-week.

The England international would become the second-highest earner at the club - just shy of goalkeeper David de Gea's £375,000-a-week deal.

In fact, Sancho's astronomical contract would see him move into the top five highest earners in the English top flight - joining De Gea, Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£350,000) and Manchester City's Raheem Sterling (£300,000). Sterling's team-mate Kevin De Bruyne rounds out this list having signed improved terms on his old £300,000-a-week deal back in April.
