Sancho “would be a brilliant signing” for Man United, according to Wes Brown.
He also added that the defender has highlighted similarities between the Dortmund star and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Sancho has enjoyed a quick rise to prominence in the Bundesliga since moving from Man City in 2017.
The 20 year old is considered to be one of the brightest young talents in European football as of now.
His numbers for goals and assists continue to improve with each games he plays.
The England international has scored 20 goals and laid on 20 chances in 39 outings for Lucien Favre’s men in 2019/20.
He grabbed the first hat-trick of his career during their last outing on Sunday against Paderborn.
Sancho found the net three times in 35 minutes as Dortmund ran out 6-1 winners on Sunday.
He proved once again why so many top clubs in Europe are interested in his signature.
The skillful winger has been heavily linked with a return to the Premier League at the end of the current campaign.
Man United are reportedly ready to fork out a fee in excess of £100 million to secure his signature.
Brown welcomes Sancho’s arrival at Old Trafford and thinks he is capable of following in the footsteps of club legend Ronaldo.
Asked what the Dortmund attacker could bring to Solskjaer’s line up, the he said to MUTV;
“Talent and excitement and we need someone exactly like that at the club.
“We’ve had them over the years and I’m sure if we were to sign him he would bring that excitement back to the club.
It would be good for the team as well.
“We’ve had players like that in the past, like with Cristiano Ronaldo.
They’re the type of player who draw three or four defenders out and make the game a lot easier for the other players.
“If we could do it, it would be a brilliant signing.”
David May also backed Brown urging his old club to make a move for Jadon Sancho.
Expressing his belief that the former City academy graduate is capable of playing at the very highest level for the next decade.
“Jadon is a very talented young lad,” said May.
“You know if you sign him, you’ve got 10-12 years of top football coming from him.
He’s got everything so get him in!”
