Jadon Sancho could make his Manchester United debut this weekend following his transfer from Borussia Dortmund earlier this summer. The 21-year-old has been in training at the club this week and is available for selection against Leeds.
Ahead of the game, which could be his Premier League debut as well, the former Watford and Manchester City youth player has talked up the chance of lining up next to Bruno Fernandes, insisting that the pair share the same winning mindset.
“Yeah, definitely. I can see that in a few of the players,” Sancho told Rio Ferdinand’s FIVE YouTube channel when asked if he is the type of player to score winning goals.
“Bruno, today, we were on the same team and we just linked up very well. Me and him love winning so I’m glad me and Bruno have the same mindset.

“It’s needed, especially in a big team like this. If you want to win things, you have to learn how to win in training and in matches so it’s important.”
Sancho, who spent two years at Manchester City prior to his four-year stay in Germany, could join a short list of players to represent both Manchester clubs in the Premier League era.
Peter Schmeichel, Owen Hargreaves, and Carlos Tevez are three notable names to have played for both clubs in recent times.
