According to Spanish outlet Diario Madridista, Manchester United are very interested in the services of Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.
United are reportedly trying to lure the young Englishman back to Manchester in a deal that could see the club pay over a £100 million to get his signature.
Sancho has become a target for many clubs across Europe after putting in some outstanding performances for Borussia Dortmund over the last few seasons.
Before the season’s suspension, he had already managed 14 goals and 15 assists in 21 Bundesliga starts for the Black Yellow.
Such productivity both creatively and as a goal threat makes the young winger an attractive prospect for any club.
Should United land Sancho, they’d be getting a young, energetic forward who seems more than ready to take on the Premier League.
They’d also be getting a much-needed final puzzle piece in their attack. With Jadon’s pace and creativity on the right side, United would have a more balanced look about them.
With his strong running and ability to pick out his teammates in the box, Sancho is growing into one of the best playmakers in European football, and his versatility means he can operate on both sides of the pitch.
Manchester United already have a strong left side, with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial striking up a good partnership. Adding Sancho to the mix, they’d have pace, energy, trickery, and of course, productivity from both sides of the pitch.
With the recent signing of Bruno Fernandes, United seem to have struck gold. The Portuguese playmaker has enjoyed a flying start to life in Manchester.
The signing of Jadon Sancho, coupled with the brilliance of Fernandes, could be the answer to United’s previous lack of incision and creativity in the final third, as both are adept at playing the final ball.
Sancho fits the profile of a Manchester United winger perfectly. He’s young but has a good football brain, he’s quick, dynamic, and a willing runner.
The price tag might be high but as Ole Gunner Solskjaer continues his quest to bring the glory days back to the red half of Manchester, the acquisition of Jadon Sancho would serve as a step in the right direction.
