Solskjaer wants Sancho at United - report

2nd April 2019, 15:31 by Andy Schooler

England starlet Jadon Sancho is a Manchester United target and they are could reportedly pay £100million for his services.

Sancho still has three years left to run on his Borussia Dortmund contract but the 19-year-old winger has reportedly been earmarked as a key target by new Old Trafford boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who was only appointed on a permanent basis last week.

According to the Independent, the Norwegian manager wants Sancho as part of a youthful, pace-led front line featuring current stars Marcus Rashford, 21, and Anthony Martial, 23.

However, Bundesliga leaders Dortmund have said that Sancho will not be sold in the forthcoming transfer window.

Sporting director Michel Zorc said last month: "His transfer will be difficult, even for the biggest clubs."

United look ready to test the German giants' resolve though with a sum which would eclipse the British transfer record of £89million, the fee paid by United for Paul Pogba in 2017.

Around the same time Pogba signed at Old Trafford, Sancho left Manchester City for Dortmund in a bid to further his career.

He was taken his chance with both hands and is enjoying a real breakthrough season.

He has 13 assists for Dortmund in the Bundesliga this season. That is one more than Lionel Messi at Barcelona and the most in any of Europe's top five leagues.

His club appearances resulted in his England debut against Croatia in October, while his first competitive start came last month in the 3-0 win over the Czech Republic at Wembley.
