RIO FERDINAND has dropped another hint suggesting Jadon Sancho could be on his way to Manchester United after finding an old message the Borussia Dortmund sent him.
The England winger, 20, has been linked with a move to Old Trafford all season.
Rio Ferdinand has sparked fresh rumours Jadon Sancho will sign for Man Utd
But with the move still not completed and Dortmund’s August 10 deadline rapidly approaching “agent” Ferdinand got down to work.
The Old Trafford legend dug up a five-year-old tweet from Sancho and shared it to his near-11million followers.
In 2015, Ferdinand gave a speech to England’s Under-16s squad, with the Three Lions’ Twitter account sharing the speech.
Sancho quote-tweeted the post: “Very inspirational man.
“@rioferdy5 knowing he grew up in the same area as me, a lot of respect!”
Hunting down the old tweet, Ferdinand shared the post alongside the eyes emoji.
Fans immediately got excited by the cryptic post – and with good reason.
The last time Ferdinand tweeted something similar – about Bruno Fernandes in January – the Portuguese completed his move to Old Trafford just days later.
On the “Brunooooooooooo” tweet, one fan recalled: “Last time he did this and see what happened…”
Another wrote: “What a way to Announce Sancho by @rioferdy5. Ferdinand just announced Sancho!”
And amid a sea of “jinx” tweets, a third added: “Agent Rioooooo!”
Sancho is said to have agreed to personal terms on his move to Man Utd, which could cost the club £110m.
United are hoping to pay between £60m and £70m up front, with the final chunk paid over in incentive-based instalments.
Dortmund had initially insisted on a £108m fee up front.
But with their pre-season rapidly approaching, the Bundesliga giants are finally set to sell and start afresh, away from all the distracting rumours for 2020-21.
