Manchester United ‘weighing up’ January move for Jadon Sancho

Manchester United’s interest in Jadon Sancho is nothing new, although reports today suggest the club could make a move for the winger as soon as January.

It was widely thought that Manchester United would wait until next summer before rekindling their interest in a deal, the Old Trafford club failing with a move for the 19-year-old last summer.

However, according to the Guardian, United could bring their planned move forward by six months as they look to capitalise on a potential rift at the Bundesliga club.

The former Man City winger was dropped and fined by Borussia Dortmund last month after returning to training late following an international break, before he was hauled off after just 36 minutes of last weekend’s Die Klassiker, Dortmund boss Lucien Favre saying the Sancho ‘wasn’t good enough’ in the 4-0 defeat to Bayern Munich.

United have been accused of having a chronic lack of creativity, the Red Devils having found the back of the net on just 16 occasions in the league this season, and Sancho would certainly go some way to alleviate that issue, the England international having scored 15 goals and provided 19 assists in the Bundesliga since the start of last season.

Despite a reported valuation in the region of £100 million, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will, however, face plenty of competition for Sancho’s signature, Liverpool and Real Madrid also said to be interested.
