Manchester United are reportedly confident of landing Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho for around £80million this summer.
Sancho has become a top target for the Red Devils, and they feel the England international’s price is likely to have fallen to around £80m, according to the Daily Star.
It remains to be seen if United will really be able to get a deal done for a talent like Sancho at such a relatively low price, but the Daily Star claim he’s now their top target as they line up a summer bid.
The report mentions United’s interest in Sancho’s Dortmund team-mate Erling Haaland as well, though Sancho is likely to be available for a great deal less money, so is more realistic.
The 21-year-old could undoubtedly add spark to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s attack, as he’s likely to be a considerable upgrade on the out-of-form Anthony Martial, while Jesse Lingard’s future at Old Trafford is in doubt after leaving for a loan move to West Ham in January.
Some fans may feel an out-and-out goal-scorer should be more of a priority for MUFC, but Sancho would surely also be an important addition to help boost the scoring opportunities for players like Marcus Rashford and Edinson Cavani.
