Jadon Sancho scored an excellent volley as Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund to beat Bayer Leverkusen.
Formerly of Manchester City’s academy, the 18-year-old has won many plaudits since moving to Germany to build his career.
According to The Sun, Manchester United are lining up a £70 million move to secure his signature, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer allegedly having a say on the pursuit.
That could see BVB make an incredible profit on Sancho, who cost them just £8 million in August 2017, as per The Guardian, which is a testament to the club’s model.
The England teenager not only netted his ninth goal of the season on Sunday, Sancho also created an assist for Dortmund’s opener through Dan-Axel Zagadou. BVB are now three points ahead of Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, who beat Hertha Berlin 1-0 at the weekend.
Watch the goal below.
Being an England international, there’s a chance Sancho will return at some point, but it would be nice to see United make a move now and get the player early to watch him develop with us rather than raise his value elsewhere.
United need to sign a right-sided specialist to even out the side’s attack. As things stand, we’re very reliant on Anthony Martial coming from the left and have no-one of similar quality running at defenders on the opposite flank.
Sancho is worth keeping an eye on. We could be watching him regularly next season.
