If Manchester United signs Jadon Sancho, Kingsley Coman will have one less club to leverage against Bayern Munich.

Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman and Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho are two of the top, young forwards in the Bundesliga. At least one of them, however, could be headed to England very soon.

Per a report from The Athletic UK — which was subsequently confirmed by Sport Bild’s Christian Falk — Borussia Dortmund and Manchester United are getting very close to an agreement on deal for Sancho.

Reportedly, only €10 million separates the two parties in getting a deal done for the 21-year-old Englishman:

Manchester United reportedly has already agreed to terms with Sancho, so once Dortmund and the Red Devils can agree on a fee, the deal should be finalized quickly.

As for Coman, the Frenchman was considered to be Manchester United’s contingency plan as his negotiations with Bayern Munich have hit a stalemate. Should the Red Devils sign Sancho, it would seem extremely unlikely that they would have continued interest in Coman.
