Man United, optimistic about the race with Chelsea for Sancho's acquisition
Manchester United bosses believe they will defeat Chelsea in an attempt to transfer English talent Jadon Sancho over the summer, as the Englishman is in a fiery race for the winger.
Jadon Sancho has been in impressive form during the 2019/20 Bundesliga season and his goal in a 5-0 win over Union Berlin made him the first player to score 25 goals in the Bundesliga before turning 20 years old.
The Englishman had earlier broken Horst Koppel record when he became the youngest player to score 22 goals in the German elite football league after his 3:3 draw with RB Leipzig on 17 December.
His influence with both Dortmund in Germany and the English national team has led many Premier League clubs to monitor his Dortmund situation to provide the services of one of the most promising talents in European football.
It is precisely his performances with the England squad that could affect Sancho’s price rise even further. For this reason, Dortmund executives want to wait for his sale until after the 2020 European Championship.
Manchester United and Chelsea have long been rumored to be transferring the Englishman, but The Mirror reports that Manchester United are confident they will win the race as it can afford the Dortmund asking price of £120m. .
However, German club sporting director Michael Zorc recently insisted that Dortmund had received no official offer.
“The fact is that no other club has contacted Jadon so far. “I can’t answer today the question of whether Sancho will stay in Dortmund beyond this season.”
“What I can say for sure is that he feels very comfortable with us, otherwise he wouldn’t be making such an impressive performance week after week.”
“He’s a phenomenon and now he’s making a big appearance. He almost never stops while on the field, always helping the team in defense. He works hard and has earned my respect. “
