MANCHESTER UNITED are close to landing Jadon Sancho in a record £110million deal.

But United will not be bullied into meeting next Monday’s deadline set by Borussia Dortmund to sign the English superstar, 20.

There has been a breakthrough in negotiations as the Red Devils have forced the Germans into accepting staggered payments, with £70m up front.

There was no way United were going to pay the initial demand of £110m in one go for someone so young.

The fee will rise to that British-record figure based on Sancho’s achievements and appearances.

And the main part of the add-ons mean United need to win the Prem and Champions League.

Sancho will sign a four-year, £220,000-a-week deal, with the option on the club’s side of extending it by a further year.

The winger — who will wear United’s iconic No 7 shirt — returns to Manchester three years after leaving the Etihad.

Dortmund paid Manchester City just £10m for him in August 2017.

The No 7 shirt was last worn by flop Alexis  Sanchez, who United are desperate to offload to Inter Milan for a cut-price £10m.

Former Arsenal forward Sanchez, 31, has been on a season-long loan at the Serie A side.

United have been paying two-thirds of his whopping £505,000-a-week salary while he has been in Italy.

Arsenal ace Mark McGuinness joins Ipswich on season-long loan deal with Arteta wanting defender to get first-team action

arsenal ace mark mcguinness joins ipswich on season long loan deal with arteta wanting defender to get first team action

ARSENAL youngster Mark McGuiness has joined Ipswich on loan for the season.

The defender, 19, put pen to paper on a temporary switch on Tuesday.

Mikel Arteta has high hopes for the Ireland Under-19 international and featured him in pre-season this year, scoring against MK Dons.

He was captain and man of the match for the U21s in the EFL Trophy victory over Ipswich earlier in September.

But Arsenal are keen for the 6ft 4ins centre-back, back fit after a lengthy spell out last season, to get first-team football under his belt so allowed him to join the Tractor Boys for the 2020-21 League One campaign.



McGuiness, who will wear the No2 at Portman Road, said: “The lads have started really well, so I know I’ll have to impress and I won’t just walk into the team, but I’m up for the challenge.

“I hope that Ipswich get promoted – I think that’s the main goal for everyone.

“The experience here could be invaluable to me. I want to make the most of it and help the club achieve what it wants.

“I feel like I’ve been ready to go out on loan for a while, but I picked up a few injuries last season unfortunately. This year I’m ready to push on.

“I love to head the ball! Being my size I should be a threat in both boxes really.

“I like to be the leader and take control. That’s always been a part of my game that I’ve excelled at.

“My main priority is defending, I like to keep the ball out of the net.

“But I know this is a ball playing team and being at Arsenal for nine years that’s something in my game as well.”

Lionel Messi lost best pals Luis Suarez and Vidal after Bartomeu feared Barcelona dressing room factions became too big

lionel messi lost best pals luis suarez and vidal after bartomeu feared barcelona dressing room factions became too big scaled

LIONEL MESSI waved goodbye to Barcelona pals Arturo Vidal and Luis Suarez amid concerns over a dressing room divide, according to reports.

Club president Josep Maria Bartomeu has overseen a rollercoaster few months at the Camp Nou.

With Vidal, 33, leaving for Inter Milan and Suarez, also 33, making a tearful exit on Wednesday, key senior players have been moved on.

The upheaval, which saw Ronald Koeman installed as coach, is said to have contributed to Messi’s decision to try and leave the club.

The star striker attempted to enact a contract clause allowing him to leave Barcelona for free following their 8-2 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Fighting back, Bartomeu highlighted the clause’s expiration some months earlier and successfully warned Messi off a legal battle.

Back in work ahead of the Blaugrana’s LaLiga opener against Villarreal on Sunday, the Argentine is shorn of two key dressing room allies.

Suarez has been a close friend of Messi’s for years, the pair living close by on the Mediterranean coastline and enjoying holidays together with their families.

Neymar was another pal before his exit to Paris Saint-Germain in 2017, but his void was filled by Arturo Vidal a year later.

A fresh, energetic and positive character, the Chilean hit it off with Messi.

According to Spanish newspaper AS, the clique the trio had formed was a motivating factor in Vidal and Suarez’s exits.

After the midfielder was sold, Messi posted an emotional farewell on Instagram, writing: “I wish you all the best in this new stage at your new club. We will meet again, for sure.”

Club president Bartomeu, himself unpopular in the dressing room, is said to have wanted a different atmosphere inside the squad.

A difficult campaign where the team failed to win a trophy reportedly opened up dressing room divides.

These two years we have shared a lot and you made yourself noticed a lot. The dressing room will miss you.

And the ensuing sales have left Messi isolated, with just team delegate Pepe Costa as a trusted ally.

The 33-year-old is understood to be friendly with the Spanish side of the squad, including Gerard Pique and Sergio Busquets.

Furthermore, the introduction of former team-mate Henrik Larsson as Koeman’s assistant is hoped to help bring the cliques together.

Pique in particular is described as seeking further influence, by buddying up to young players.
