Manchester United handed boost in possible Jadon Sancho summer transfer pursuit

Manchester United may have been handed a boost if they continue to pursue Jadon Sancho in the summer transfer window.

The failure to sign the Borussia Dortmund forward was well documented last summer as United instead completed the transfers of young wingers Amad and Facundo Pellistri on deadline day.

Sancho has four goals and seven assists in 19 Bundesliga starts this season but Dortmund are sitting precariously in sixth and there is an increasing concern that they could miss out on the Champions League places.

Borussia Mönchengladbach confirmed on Monday that Marco Rose will take over at the end of the season but it is uncertain whether Sancho will be part of the progressive young coach’s plans.

According to German magazine Kicker, as sourced by Sport Witness, a transfer for Sancho ‘is coming’ this summer and that he will be able to leave Dortmund should a suitable offer come in for him.

It is added that the €120m originally demanded for Sancho is no longer feasible and a much lower bid would likely be accepted.

Dortmund’s apparent stance in sanctioning a move for the England international at a lower price could reignite United’s interest in a player they value highly.

But Sunday’s 1-1 draw to West Brom in the Premier League again highlighted that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s most pressing concern is in central defence and United must address that issue before focusing on talented attackers like Sancho.
