Jadon Sancho has been identified by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ed Woodward as the perfect fit to lead Manchester United’s revolution.
As reported by the Evening Standard, the Borussia Dortmund starlet was on Solskjaer’s transfer list last summer, but decided against pushing for a move away from Germany.
But there is more of a realistic expectation that Sancho could join Solskjaer’s current crop of exciting young talent in the upcoming transfer window.
It is claimed United are willing to break their transfer record and spend north of £100m to secure the services of the 20-year-old.
The iconic number 7 shirt is vacant at Old Trafford and Sancho is seen as a player who deserves the privilege of taking it.
He has scored 14 goals and contributed a further 15 assists in the Bundesliga this season and is one of the most coveted stars across Europe.
Signing Sancho would represent a huge coup for Solskjaer, who could construct a dangerous front line including Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.
United are currently lacking a natural right-winger and Sancho provides width to add balance to Solskjaer’s side, as well as his serious star quality with the combination of pace and flair.
Sancho’s future will dominate the headlines when the transfer window opens this summer and we are eager to see if United can secure their number one target.
