The England international has been a long-time target for the Red Devils.
And they could finally make their move in the summer.
Manchester United are leading the race to sign Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, according to The Mirror. The 19-year-old star is known to be high on the wish list of United, Chelsea and Liverpool, although his €150 million price tag has put off Jurgen Klopp, leaving Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Frank Lampard to do battle for his signature.
The report claims that United have established strong links with Dortmund and believe they are in pole position. Dortmund are resigned to losing the player but are hoping that a bidding war could push the eventual fee up to somewhere between €120 and €150 million.
Jesco von Eichmann (Sky Germany reporter): “Michael Zorc, the director of Dortmund, said last week in an interview that he hasn’t had an offer for Jadon Sancho yet. Today, I asked him again, and he just smiled.” #mulive [sky]— utdreport (@utdreport) February 12, 2020
And in addition, Sky Germany now say that Sancho will end his three year stay at BVB this summer: “He will leave Dortmund this summer, that’s for sure,” reporter Jesco von Eichmann said. “It’s not clear to which club he will change. Manchester United is one of the big clubs that are interested, that I’ve heard.”
“Michael Zorc, the director of Dortmund, said last week in an interview that he hasn’t had an offer for Jadon Sancho yet. Today, I asked him again, and he just smiled. There will be some offers for Sancho in the future. He is improving. He was very tired at the end of the first part of the season but now he’s very fit and performing very good. He improved his behaviour.”
