Manchester United need depth in their attacking department and they are linked with England international and Dortmund sensation Jadon Sancho.
According to an exclusive report covered by Mirror Sport, Man Utd are ready to break their transfer record to secure the signing of the 18-year-old starlet.
United’s current record signing is French international Paul Pogba, who was lured in 2016 for a fee of £89million from Juventus. As per Mirror Sport, Sancho is already valued in excess of £100m.
Sancho is mainly a right winger and at Old Trafford, Lingard is the team’s first choice right winger. In his absence, United do not have an adequate replacement in the squad, hence, further depth and quality is required and the position must be improved.
The youngster has been in sensational form in the current campaign for Dortmund, who are currently sitting at the top of the Bundesliga table after 24 fixtures.
In just 17 league starts so far, Sancho has already directly contributed in 20 goals (8 goals and 12 assists) for BVB.
Without a shadow of a doubt, he would be a fantastic signing for the Red Devils, however, as per the provided Mirror Sport link, they face massive competition from reigning Ligue 1 champions, PSG, who are interested in luring Sancho from the German club.
The French giants have a 2-0 lead over United going into the second leg of their R16 Champions League contest. Can United turn the tie around in France? Only time will tell.
As far as Sancho is concerned, we shall see how the transfer saga unfolds in the coming months.
