Maybe it was pure coincidence, but did you notice Jadon Sancho got his first Euro 2020 start merely hours after a deal with Manchester United was agreed? 

Footballing critics everywhere, in particular Germany, were scratching their heads as to why Sancho had featured so little for the Three Lions during the tournament.

The 21-year-old midfielder enjoyed another outstanding season at Borussia Dortmund netting 16 goals and contributing 20 assists for the yellow and black outfit.

However, Gareth Southgate appeared to prefer Phil Foden and Bukayo Saka to the former Manchester City academy star, until England’s stunning 4-0 victory against Ukraine in the quarter-finals where Sancho started and starred.

It did spark curiosity as just a few hours before England kicked off in Rome to face Andriy Shevchenko’s side, Sancho agreed a deal in principle to move to Old Trafford after the passing of a medical – the deal is all but done for Sancho.

According to the Daily Mail, Sancho is just the first of many new star faces at United as the Red Devils are keen to sign French pair Raphael Varane and Eduardo Camavinga from Real Madrid and Rennes respectively.

The Real Madrid defender would be the ideal partner for Harry Maguire

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to address many areas in his team, and after locking down the right flank with Sancho’s capture, the Norwegian is looking to sign the French pair to address his issues at central defence and midfield.

A partner for Harry Maguire and a commanding midfielder to unlock Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes appears to be the priority for the United manager, and it is believed United want to acquire the French pair with around £75 million.

Varane is estimated to cost around £50 million, while Camavinga would reportedly be a bargain buy of around £25 million – both stars are relatively discounted as both of their respective contracts will expire next season.

The 18-year-old is one of the hottest prospects in world football
