According to the Mirror, Man Utd are hopeful of beating rivals Chelsea to sign Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Jadon Sancho in the summer for a touted fee of £120m.
The Mirror reports that the battle for Jadon Sancho – one of the most exciting players in world football – has become a two-way battle between the Red Devils and the Blues.
Mirror Sport add that Borussia Dortmund are ready to sell the 19-year-old winger this summer, it’s not shocking to see that the German side have resigned themselves to losing the ace considering Sancho’s meteoric rise.
Jadon Sancho’s signing would be a massive statement of intent from the Red Devils, not only would they be capturing one of the world’s biggest stars – but they’d also be getting one over rivals Manchester City.
Jadon Sancho spent some time in City’s academy after spending his early career with Watford. The tricky full-forward ultimately left Pep Guardiola’s side on the hunt for more first-team football, and he hasn’t looked back since.
The youngster has 15 goals and 17 assists in 29 matches across all competitions, this is an absolutely phenomenal return, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side would be boosted by Sancho’s cutting edge in the final third.
Jadon Sancho’s price-tag could still skyrocket, with the ace becoming a key player for England in the last year, the attacker has the chance to prove himself as a superstar with a successful Euros campaign.
