We are getting closer and closer to the summer transfer window and Jadon Sancho continues to be linked with Manchester United.
According to a recent report covered by Miguel Delaney for The Independent, the Red Devils have made a list of priority targets and the Dortmund star, who is expected to leave in the upcoming window, remains high priority.
The renowned journalist has mentioned that Man Utd have done a lot, they lead the race and as per a source, they would ‘do anything’ to secure his signing.
The 20-year-old star has been in world class form for Borussia Dortmund and he is not going to come for cheap. His current contract with the German club will expire in two years and last summer, he signed a bumper contract worth £190,000-a-week (The Mail).
In all competitions, the young winger has already directly contributed in 40 (20 goals and 20 assists) goals in just 39 appearances this season.
At the weekend, the former Man City attacker scored his first hat-trick of the career against Paderborn in the Bundesliga.
After losing the likes of Lukaku and Sanchez last summer, Solskjaer failed to adequately replace the duo and that is why Manchester United have not been productive in the attacking third this season. So, without doubt, the offense must be improved in the summer.
Sancho can comfortably play on either flank but naturally he is a right winger. On the left flank, the 20-time English champions already have a top class player in the form of Marcus Rasfhord, who has been their best star this season despite spending a lot of time out injured.
So, the 11-capped international should be deployed on the right wing if he does join the Red Devils in the summer.
Currently, we do have the likes of James, Mata and Lingard who can play on the right flank. Unfortunately, none of them is good enough. Mata is past his best, Lingard has been a massive flop and James has been highly inconsistent since moving to Old Trafford last summer.
Therefore, a top right winger must be lured in the summer and Jadon Sancho completely fits the bill. We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds in the coming weeks.
