Manchester United have been linked with Jadon Sancho for a long time now and now, another renowned source have reported that the Red Devils believe they are in pole position to hire the services of the England international.
Last month, The Telegraph claimed that the Old Trafford club thinks they are favorites to secure the signature of the Dortmund attacker despite interest from top European clubs like Barcelona, Real Madrid and UCL winners Liverpool.
Now, Mirror Sport have covered a report and stated that Man Utd believe they’re leading to sign the 19-year-old, who could leave the German club in the winter transfer window.
The teenage sensation had a fantastic debut campaign in the Bundesliga last season and in the summer, he deservedly earned a new contract worth £190,000-a-week (The Mail).
Even in the current campaign, his form has been top class under the management of Lucien Favre. So far, in 15 starts in all competitions, the youngster has directly contributed in no fewer than 21 goals (10 goals and 11 assists).
He has already played 11 times for the senior national side and scored 2 goals.
Sancho has got the quality to improve Man Utd’s attack which clearly lacks quality and depth after the departure of Lukaku and Sanchez in the summer transfer window.
However, it must be remembered that his discipline has not been on point this season. Back in October, Dortmund opted to fine and suspend the speedy starlet when he reported back late from international duty.
Furthermore, the Three Lions winger even arrived late for the team meeting before the Champions League contest against Barcelona and the manager decided to exclude him from the starting XI (Bild).
In your view, should United sign a player who has shown serious disciplinary concerns of late?
