Manchester United’s desire to sign Borussia Dortmund Winger Jadon Sancho has been given a new boost after it was confirmed he is very open to returning to Manchester, MySportDab reports.
Sancho is one of the best young players in world football after scoring 14 goals and providing 16 assists for Borussia Dortmund in the German Bundesliga this season.
His form has led to interest from Europe’s top clubs, with Premier League clubs such as Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool very keen.
According to The Athletic, Manchester United is the most likely next destination for the winger as his life and friends in Manchester make a move to Old Trafford a very good option for him.
Sancho played for the academy teams of Manchester City before signing for Borussia Dortmund for £8million in 2017.
The transfer to Manchester United would see Sancho link up with England team-mate Marcus Rashford, with the pair having combined will on international duty for Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions.
And Rashford is very excited about the possibility of playing alongside Sancho at both club and international stage.
He told Bleacher Report Live: ‘I hope we can play together, that would be great.
‘He plays very well, he’s creative, imaginative, these are the things you need in a world class class.’
MySportDab understands Sancho is also a target for Chelsea and Liverpool but the Premier League clubs are not ready to pay Dortmund’s £120m fee for the winger.
Any transfer agreement for Sancho is likely to beyond the £100m fee given his exciting potential.
Borussia Dortmund are not sure on whether to cash in on the Englishman or try to keep him at the club but they won’t sell him cheap.
