Man Utd reportedly in pole position to land promising 13-assists winger
Manchester United have appeared as favourites to land Jadon Sancho, Borussia Dortmund’s teenage sensation.
Sancho has helped fire die Borussen to the top of the Bundesliga this campaign, having netted seven goals and registered 11 assists in his 21 league matches, plus one goal and an assist in the UCL.
And with the Red Devils on the lookout for more creativity from midfield this summer window, 18-year-old winger Jadon certainly fits the bill.
While his club were blown away by Tottenham Hotspur in Spurs’ Champions League last-16 win on Wednesday, Jadon showed why he is so highly rated.
Sancho was involved in almost every attack when German club were on top early on, setting up several chances which the star’s team-mates failed to capitalise on, and almost found Englishman through on goal at one point before the Bundesliga outfit were eventually defeated 3-0.
Sancho has been connected with a move back to his one-time club Manchester City, but bookies now have their rivals Red Devils ahead in the hunt to bring him back to EPL.
Manchester United are 4/1 favourites to land Sancho, while a move to any Spanish side is priced at 6/1.
A switch to France or Italy is 8/1 – the same odds as EPL giants Chelsea, who are second favourites in the EPL to sign the winger.
