Report: Figures at Borussia Dortmund believe Sancho is on his way to Manchester United

The England international is reported as a primary target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this summer and United look set to make him the most expensive player in their history.

Dortmund are expected to demand upwards of £100m for his signature, and there has been a growing acceptance this season that Sancho will move on in the coming months.

Although the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool have been linked with Sancho as well as United, I can’t see either of our Premier League rivals meeting Dortmund and the player’s demands.

The Red Devils have the financial power to do so.
