Jadon Sancho's rise to the upper echelons of European football in the last 12 months has been quite something.
The Englishman's move to Borussia Dortmund in 2017 has well and truly paid dividends, with the 20-year-old enjoying a remarkable 2019/20 season.
In his 44 games in all competitions, Sancho scored 20 goals and assisted another 20, remarkable numbers for a player so young.
As a result of his achievements out on the pitch, the former Manchester City forward has been rigorously linked with a return to the Premier League.
Manchester United have been the team most prominently associated with Sancho in the rumour mils and it appears there has been an update on the Red Devils' pursuit of the Dortmund man.
Ian McGarry added on The Transfer Podcast that a five-year contract has been agreed in principle between the two parties.
Sancho would start on a wage of £140,000-a-week, which would then rise to around £200,000-a-week as the deal progresses.
GIVEMESPORT'S Danny Ryan says...
Tread carefully around these latest revelations, United fans.
It was only a few days ago that it was being reported that senior officials at the club would only be willing to pay £50m for Sancho.
Agreeing personal terms is, of course, a significant step in the right direction, but United would still face the arduous task of negotiating a transfer fee with Dortmund.
And let's be honest, the German club aren't going to let a £100m+ player depart for half that fee, regardless of the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic.
There's certainly room for optimism here, United fans, but do not assume that a forward line of Sancho, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial is now a given for the 2020/21 season.
