It is now no news that Jadon Sancho is Manchester United’s top transfer target this summer and the club reportedly want him in before their 2020/21 season campaign gets underway.
Manchester United want to have Jadon Sancho signed by the time they get their Premier League campaign underway on September 19, according to reports.
Manchester United got their transfer window rolling last week with the acquisition of Midfielder Donny van de Beek from Ajax and BIMA Sport understands that the club are working on up to three more deals this summer.
The priority target for Manchester united is Borussia Dortmund and English winger Jadon Sancho, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hoping to further strengthen his attacking options in order to mount a title challenge.
Manchester United are long-term admirers of the 20-year-old and are hoping to finally sign him this year after failing to do so twice previously in 2017, when he left Manchester City, and 2019.
The deal had been thrown into doubt after Dortmund officials stated that Sancho would be staying for at least another year and that his contract had been extended until 2023.
However, United haven’t given up on the deal and some progress was finally made this week in talks with Sancho’s representatives over personal terms and agent costs, though a deal is yet to be struck with Dortmund.
According to Norwegian publication Dagbladet, United are now confident that the transfer will go through and they hope to have the England international in their squad when they kick off their league campaign against Crystal Palace next Saturday
The report adds that Solskjaer has had several conversations with Sancho, in which he expressed his desire to move to Old Trafford.
Meanwhile, Bayern Munich’s Thiago Alcantara has reportedly picked which club he wants to move to.
Liverpool and United have both been credited with an interest in the midfielder and it is claimed by The Athletic that the 29-year-old wants to move to Anfield.
Central midfield is no longer a priority for United after signing Donny van de Beek.
