Manchester United face competition from Liverpool and Real Madrid for the signature of Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho next summer.
The Englishman has netted 16 goals and claimed 20 assists since the start of last season and is tipped to become one of the country’s biggest superstars.
Reports have strongly suggested that United are determined to sign Sancho, who is valued at over £100m by Dortmund.
According to German media outlet Bild, United, Liverpool and Real are the ‘hottest candidates’ to secure Sancho’s signature next summer.

I’m not sure why, but I can picture Sancho joining Chelsea next summer. There is little evidence to support this but Chelsea are good at jumping in at the right moment to sign top players. Following a one-year transfer ban, spending over £100m on the 20-year-old would make sense.
That said, there is a good body of evidence suggesting that United want the player. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on signing an attacking right-sided player capable of complementing the attributes of the more defensively-minded Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Either way, this is a saga that will, no doubt, continue to blossom as the summer gets closer.
