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.
