Jadon Sancho is set to complete his move to Manchester United this week and will reportedly have a medical on Tuesday.
United have agreed to pay £73million to Borussia Dortmund for the English wonderkid, who is said to have already agreed personal terms.
Sancho is reportedly set to wrap up the final few details of his move on Monday before arriving at Carrington on Tuesday.
Following his medical, he will reportedly jet off on holiday in order to rest up before the new Premier League season.
A decision is still yet to be made on his shirt number, with reports suggesting he could be offered the number seven shirt.
However, that number is currently worn by Edinson Cavani, so a decision would need to be made on whether they offer the Uruguayan a different shirt or keep him in it until the end of his contract next year.
A decision is, however, expected to be made when the transfer is officially announced this week.
United's first game of the new campaign is in just over a month's time when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side welcome Leeds United.

All signs indicate that Sancho will be a United player by that point, and will likely be included in the team as soon as he is able to.
The Athletic reports Sancho will be offered pastoral care from United officials after the ending to Euro 2020.
Sancho came on in the final minute of Sunday's final against Italy and barely touched the ball before stepping up to take a penalty.

Unfortunately, the winger saw his effort saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma, with Italy then winning the penalty shoot-out minutes later.
In the aftermath, he and new team-mate Marcus Rashford received torrid racial abuse on social media.
But United officials are set to give him support despite the transfer not being officially confirmed yet.

Both Sancho and Rashford will apparently be given three weeks off before returning for pre-season training.
As a result, it's likely Sancho will be eased into action at United, and won't be rushed into the starting XI.
Sancho's new team-mate Paul Pogba sent him a message of encouragement after the disappointment of Sunday's penalty miss, and told him and Rashford to keep their heads up.
"I am PROUD OF YOU. You win some, you lose some," he wrote. "You took the courage to take the penalties and you showed your worth to help your country reach the final.
"We cannot tolerate or stand for racism anymore and we will never stop combatting it.
"You boys should hold your heads high and be proud of your confidence. You are examples of this beautiful game. Never forget that. Be proud of yourselves, the world of football is proud of you."
