Another day, another report linking England international Jadon Sancho with Manchester United.
The Borussia Dortmund winger has been in sensational form this term and therefore, it is not surprising that several clubs are after him. However, reports suggest that his next destination will likely be Old Trafford
According to Sport, Man United have practically tied down the player despite not having reached any official agreement yet.
The Spanish outlet have reported that Chelsea wanted priority signing of Sancho but the Red Devils moved more swiftly and have even managed to convince the player to join. It is further mentioned that after getting rejected by the Three Lions star, now, the Blues are focusing on signing former Liverpool attacker Philippe Coutinho.
Chelsea made it into the top four last term, won the Europa League and are still active in the Europe’s elite competition in the current campaign. On the other hand, United finished sixth and are alive in the Europa League this term.
In the Premier League, the Blues currently occupy the final Champions League qualification spot and are three points ahead of the Old Trafford club after 29 games.
So, the Stamford Bridge outfit have been better recently and perhaps offer a better sporting project. Still, £190,000-a-week star (The Mail) has reportedly rejected Frank Lampard’s team in order to secure a move to Man United.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does need to improve his wide attacking positions. Last year, he allowed big money flop Alexis Sanchez to join Internazionale on loan and lured Daniel James. The Welsh international scored three league goals in August but since then, he has only managed to find the net once in all competitions.
Sancho is mainly a right winger and he has already scored 17 goals this season for Dortmund. If the 11-capped international does end up moving to Man United then he should replace James in the lineup to start with Fernandes and Rashford in the attack behind the main center forward.
