Marcus Rashford says his Twitter account was hacked after a message ‘confirming’ Jadon Sancho will join Manchester United.

United are thought to be close to agreeing a deal to sign Sancho after failing to land him last summer.

With fans desperate for confirmation, Rashford has been hit with pleas for updates on his social media pages, replying ‘not just yet’ after being asked to ‘announce Sancho’ on Tuesday following England’s Euro 2020 win over Germany.

The United forward dropped an even bigger hint moments later when he replied ‘yes’ to a fan asking him to confirm the move is on.

Rashford has since deleted the tweets and posted on his account on Wednesday morning: ‘A little hack and I’m back. Morning all.’

United were priced out of a move for Sancho last summer as Borussia Dortmund held firm on their £110m valuation of the England winger.

The German giants have dropped their asking price this time around with United now confident of agreeing a fee of around £85m.

Sancho has reportedly already agreed personal terms with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and will sign a contract worth £250,000-a-week.

United also hope to sign a new centre-half this summer with Real Madrid star Raphael Varane thought to be the club’s first choice.

Villarreal’s Pau Torres and Jules Kounde of Sevilla are also thought to alternative targets.
