Man Utd continue chase for creative English forward
Red Devils are reportedly confident they will seal the transfer of Jadon Sancho, whether it’s this summer or next. The 20-year-old winger has been a world-class performer for Borussia Dortmund and would be a fantastic signing to the Norwegian manager’s squad, whenever they finally get their hands on him.
Jadon has long been linked with Red Devils, and negotiations looked to be progressing well earlier this summer until BVB emphatically ruled out a sale. It stays to be seen if there is a chance of resurrecting the move any time soon, but football transfer expert Gabriele Marcotti has spoken out on the saga and backed Sancho to get his move to England.
“Man United have a price they are willing to go to and if it’s not going to be this summer they are confident they will get him next summer,” Marcotti said. “The guy plays a different position, he is young, he is English and he is still somebody who Man United really, really want.”
Red Devils supporters will hope to see England international join them as soon as possible, but another season in the Bundesliga might also not be the worst thing for the teenager.
So far, they have found it difficult to match Bundesliga giants demands for an up-front fee for the English forward. Bundesliga giants want a hefty sum to be paid immediately, whereas the Red Devils prefer to structure the deal with add-ons to be paid at a later date.
But despite their virtual deadline passing, Man United are still chasing the Englishman. And they will only give up once Jadon Sancho has stated in public that he is remaining at Borussia Dortmund.
