Manchester United eyeing teenage sensation from Bundesliga

Manchester United have reportedly made a shock inquiry for Borussia Dortmund ace Jadon Sancho, the Red Devils have been quoted with a £70m price-tag for the young star.

Manchester United have made a surprise approach to Borussia Dortmund to try and sign Jadon Sancho, according to reports in the British media. The Sun is reporting that the Red Devils are keeping a close eye on Sancho, who featured for Dortmund during their defeat by Tottenham in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Sancho, who is 19 next month, is enjoying life in Germany where he has become a hero with the Dortmund fans but a big move to Manchester United could prove difficult to resist. Sancho has scored eight goals and provided 13 assists in 29 appearances for Dortmund, helping them remain two points clear at the top of the table.

While there is no doubt that Sancho is very talented and should only improve and develop his game with more playing time and gain maturity from experience, that is a lot of money for a talented youngster who has yet to prove that he can consistently deliver on the biggest stages.

In turn, should the Red Devils consider it, they’ll have to be certain that Sancho can live up to their expectations and deliver on that level of price-tag. Further, it would seem unlikely that Man Utd will make any major signings until a permanent boss is appointed, as any new arrivals will surely need to fit his ideas and tactics moving forward.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are currently preparing for their FA Cup fifth-round clash against Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge on Monday night. The Red Devils are looking to get back to winning ways after the disappointment of their 2-0 loss to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last week.

Author’s Take:

It’s unlikely that there will be any major developments in the more immediate future, while given Dortmund have already agreed to sell Christian Pulisic to Chelsea for £58m this summer, it remains to be seen if they’re willing to lose two of their best young talents in one summer.
