Manchester United, Liverpool and Real Madrid chase Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho

A host of top European clubs including Liverpool, Real Madrid and Paris St-Germain, as well as Manchester United, are leading the hunt to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho this summer.

Sancho, 19, has enjoyed another stellar season in the Bundesliga, scoring 14 goals and providing 14 assists in just 22 matches.

Inevitably, this has led to transfer speculation about him. While Sancho has publicly said he is happy in Dortmund, the club has form for selling its stars for huge profits and Sancho could well sell for more than £100 million.

Manchester United have long been linked to a player who started out at rivals City. Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a fan and would fit with the club’s strategy of buying players before they hit their peak years. 

Meanwhile runaway Premier League leaders Liverpool will be looking to strengthen their side, particularly if rumours that clubs are interested in signing Sadio Mane are true – there is also speculation that the player isn’t entirely happy on Merseyside.

Real Madrid are inevitably linked too as Zinedine Zidane continues his revamp of the ageing squad. Sancho would fit into Madrid’s model and could even be a replacement for Gareth Bale, who may finally exit the Bernabeu this summer.

Should all these clubs follow up their interest, then that £100 million figure could well escalate.

Manchester United and Real Madrid set for battle for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho

European giants Manchester United and Real Madrid are set for a battle to sign £100 million-rates Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho this summer. 

Sancho has established himself as one of the most promising talents in Europe this season, scoring 11 goals and providing 13 assists for Dortmund in the Bundesliga this season. In addition, the 19-year-old has broken into Gareth Southgate’s England side.

United have been linked with Sancho for some time and have been thought to be lining up a bid for when the transfer window reopens.

However, now Real are also interested in Sancho, according to the Independent. Manager Zinedine Zidane is widely expected to conduct a major rebuild of Los Blancos squad this season after a mediocre – by their standards – season.

Neither side would baulk at paying out £100 million, but with both sides interested it could result in a bidding war – which would no doubt please Dortmund bosses, who are known for selling if the price is right.

It is not thought likely that Sancho’s former club, Manchester City, would come in for him.

Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund are lining up Chelsea forward Callum Hudson-Odoi as a replacement for Jadon Sancho if they sell him to Manchester United this summer. 

Dortmund have put a £100 million price tag on Sancho, with Manchester United rumoured to be keen on bringing him back to the city.

The German club have shown previously that if a club offers the right price, they will sell star players.

Sancho has been a revelation this season for Dortmund, becoming a fixture in the side and putting in a series of impressive displays domestically and in Europe. He has also broken into the England squad.

If Sancho is sold, then The Mirror has reported that Dortmund are lining up Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi as a replacement.

Hudson-Odoi is very highly rated, and was called up to the England squad this week by Gareth Southgate.

However, he is yet to start a Premier League game for Chelsea and is frustrated at his lack of game time. Indeed, he put in a transfer request in January, which was rejected.

But Dortmund would face competition for Hudson-Odoi from German rivals Bayern Munich. Bayern made a £35 million bid for the 18-year-old in January and are thought to be preparing another bid in the summer. Red Bull Leipzig are also thought to be interested.

Chelsea may also be reluctant to sell, as they currently face a transfer ban for the next two transfer windows and will not want to lose players – even if it means they could lose him for nothing in 2020 when Hudson-Odoi’s contract expires.

Manchester United still targeting summer move for Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho

Manchester United look set to press ahead with an £80 million move for Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho this summer, according to reports. 

Sancho has been a standout performer for Dortmund this year, producing a string of impressive displays and goals in the Bundesliga and Champions League. He has managed to keep more established players, such as Christian Pulisic, on the bench.

Inevitably, this has led to rumours of other clubs looking to sign the England player in the summer. The rumour about United’s interest first surfaced some weeks ago, but it is continuing to gain traction.

The Independent is the latest to report United’s interest, saying that an £80 million bid is on the cards. It is thought Sancho fits the ethos of buying young talent in, and he would provide competition for the likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.

Any such move would also likely hasten Alexis Sanchez’s departure from Old Trafford. The Chilean has struggled since he joined in January 2018, and could be allowed to leave, either on a permanent or season-long loan.

However, whether Sancho would come is open to question. He is enjoying life in Germany and may decide that another year starting regularly in the Bundesliga might be the best thing for his development.

History shows that while Dortmund may not want to sell, if the price is right they will do a deal.

Manchester United have approached Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund about a potential move for winger Jadon Sancho, according to reports. 

Sancho, 18, has been a star for Dortmund this season, becoming a regular in the side and scoring 7 goals in 21 appearances the Bundesliga, along with a handful of assists. He has also kept Christian Pulisic out of the side, who will join Chelsea in the summer for £60 million.

Dortmund are said to want £70 million for the England star, according to The Sun. However, 15% of that would go to his previous club Manchester City, who inserted a sell-on clause when they sold him to Dortmund for £8 million back in 2017.

City also have an agreement where if a club comes into buy Sancho they can match the offer if they want to.

However, it is thought unlikely that Sancho would want to return to City, at least while Pep Guardiola is in charge.

Sancho would provide competition up front to United’s other young stars, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard.

Should Sancho come to United – and a move back to England would be tempting, despite him being happy in Germany – then it could hasten the departure of Alexis Sanchez, who has failed to recapture his best form since joining from Arsenal.

This is not the first time this rumour has surfaced. United are thought to be planning a rebuild of the squad and the summer and Sancho would fit the profile of player they are looking for. But much will depend on who is installed as permanent manager and who they want to bring in.
