It looks like Jadon Sancho is on Manchester United’s transfer list of targets for the summer.
Striking a deal with Borussia Dortmund will require a big fee. They’re a selling club but the second biggest football club in Germany sell at premium prices.
According to the Mirror, United have prioritised a wide player for the right flank and see the young England international as the ideal fit.
They add that United’s hope of landing Sancho very much depend on whether we finish in the top four this season.
The 18-year-old has reached new levels at Dortmund this season and it’s no surprise to see United strongly linked with the former Manchester City youth player.
He’s English and has tons of potential, plays on the right wing where United need to improve, and you’d think it’s only a matter of time before he does return to his homeland.
Sancho took a huge risk 19 months ago. Pep Guardiola was keen for him to stay at City, but the winger felt Dortmund would provide more first-team opportunities.
In hindsight, the risk paid off.

Dortmund will play hardball between now and the summer, insisting Sancho is not for sale, though every player has a price and United’s financial strength should tempt the Bundesliga leaders. The Mirror state it could take a bid in excess of £100 million to land the talented winger.
Pipping Bayern Munich to the title this season would go a long way towards shaping Sancho as a player. He’s a regular in the team now, scoring eight and creating 13 goals in 30 appearances, and they’re fighting for success!
