Earlier this summer, Manchester United’s 12-month pursuit of Jadon Sancho finally ended. The 21-year-old winger was the subject of strong interest last summer but ended up staying at Borussia Dortmund.
As you would expect, Sancho enjoyed another stellar season in Germany and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side’s interest was reignited this summer. Following his involvement in Euro 2020, a transfer was formally announced in July.
After two substitute appearances against Leeds and Southampton, Sancho started for the first time against Wolves last week and will be hoping to be a permanent fixture in Solskjaer’s team.
The former Manchester City youth star, who is a close friend of Marcus Rashford, has now previewed the possibility of a three-man attack with the Rashford and Mason Greenwood.
“That’s gonna be a crazy link-up,” he told UMM when quizzed on the potential front three. “When Marcus gets back, obviously, I’ve just seen a bit of Mason recently in training and he’s crazy.
“We’re still getting to know each other, obviously, movement and things like that. Getting to know and understanding but yeah, it’s gonna be crazy with all three of us on the pitch.”
Sancho was included in Gareth Southgate’s first England squad of the season but following a knock in training, he withdrew from the camp. The injury is, however, not expected to keep him out of United’s game against Newcastle on September 11.
