Finally.

After months and months of endless speculation, transfer rumors, and roadblocks, Manchester United has finally got the striker of their dreams.

The BBC reports that Man United and Borussia Dortmund have agreed to a fee in principle of £73 million ($100.87 million) for Jadon Sancho.

The contract will reportedly run for at least five years--with an extension option for a sixth year.

Sancho and the Red Devils have been joined at the hip since last summer’s transfer window, but Manchester United failed to meet Dortmund’s nine-figure demand for the English winger.

He was an academy player for both Watford and Manchester City for a combined 10 years before being signed by Dortmund.

Sancho enjoyed a particularly fruitful outing in the Bundesliga as he scored eight goals and had 11 assists in 26 league games, which are impressive as he missed six weeks due to a muscle injury.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to build on their progress from last season with the Sancho signing.

He led the Red Devils to a second-place finish in the English Premier League, 12 points away from archrival Manchester City.

They also placed second in the Europa League where they lost to La Liga’s Villareal on penalties after David de Gea let one slip through the net on the 11th round.

Sancho will take some time to acclimate to the level of play that is expected in the English Premier League, but he is very much familiar with some of his teammates.

He will be joining his England international teammates Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Harry Maguire at Old Trafford.

The Englishman just turned 21 years old this March, and Manchester United is hoping for at least a decade of top-level performances from him which is why they don’t mind paying him such a high fee.

Sancho will be looking to clear his medicals and physicals in the coming weeks to join Manchester United as early as possible.
