Manchester United are favourites to sign former-Manchester City starlet Jadon Sancho, according to reports in Italy.
The forward made his debut for England earlier this month after Gareth Southgate was just as impressed by Sancho’s fantastic displays for Borussia Dortmund as the rest of Europe.
Sancho left Man City to join Dortmund in 2017 in search of first team football and has flourished in the German Bundesliga. He’s scored four times and assisted a further six goals in only 377 minutes of action in the league this season. In the UEFA Champions League, he’s contributed a further two goals in only three games, too.
Italian outlet TuttoMercato claims that there is now great interest in Sancho from England’s leading clubs.
Every one of the top six clubs are mentioned by the Italian website, including Sancho’s former-side Man City.
However, Man United are labelled as the “favourite team” to sign Sancho in what would be an immensely controversial move but a fantastic one for the Reds.
Tuttomercato do not mention another source in the article and thus it appears that the report is their own. That brings to question why an Italian newspaper would have the details of an English player at a German club moving to an English club.
Despite that, it would be entirely expected for United to be looking at Sancho, having actually been interested in him while he was still playing for their local rivals.
