JADON SANCHO signing for Manchester United is now such a formality that Gary Neville has grown ‘bored’ of the transfer saga.
The Red Devils are finally on the verge of sealing a deal for the Borussia Dortmund winger.

Earlier this month, United agreed a £91million, five-year contract with Sancho – as revealed by SunSport.
And reports suggest the clubs are closing in on a transfer fee in the region of £80m.
Club legend Neville, 46, has admitted his exhaustion at the saga after his old team spent most of last summer being strongly linked with Sancho.
Therefore, the sight of the 21-year-old finally stepping onto the Old Trafford pitch may not feel as special as he had hoped.
Neville tweeted: “Manchester United closing in on Sancho again!
“A transfer should be a joy and a moment of excitement.
“I’ve never been more bored by a transfer in my life to the point I feel like he’s already signed and I want to know who is next already.
“Not the lad’s fault at all I should say!”
Sancho is currently with England at Euro 2020.
Despite being yet to start a game for Gareth Southgate’s side, he is not expected to complete his Manchester move until after the tournament.
Neville may not have long to wait to enjoy whoever may follow Sancho through the door with United plotting a busy summer.
A new centre-back is on the agenda and Real Madrid star Raphael Varane is strongly linked with a move.
Sevilla’s Jules Kounde is another target although Chelsea and Tottenham are set to provide competition for the France international.
