ESPN reports that Manchester United are the leading candidate to capture Borussia Dortmund winger and England international Jadon Sancho who is presently being pursued also by Liverpool and Chelsea.

The 20-year-old winger has been the subject of many rumours linking him to several clubs. Borussia Dortmund wants €130 million for Sancho who has scored 14 Bundesliga goals this season. Dortmund would like to see Liverpool and Chelsea challenge United so that way it would create an auction for Sancho’s signature.

The ESPN article goes on say that United could significantly improve their chances of signing the youngster if they can qualify for the Champions League for next season. They can also put together a lucrative financial package and offer him guaranteed first-team football next season.

Jadon Sancho is one of the young best talents in world football and it will be great if manchester United could secure his services. United tried to sign him last season I believe, but were unsuccessful. They would get a 20-year-old player that can play on either wing and is accurate with his crossing. He can score goals as evidenced by his 14 goals so far this season.

He would be a welcome addition to the right or left-wing depending on where Solskjaer wants him to operate. He has amazing pace and has good on-on-one skills so he can get past his markers.

The fact that he already plays for the English national team is a plus where his international experience is concerned. He already has experience starting in games for Dortmund in the Champions League and that is an advantage as well. I hope United will be able to sign this great talent.
